    Hi Jeannie

    Looks good, may b I shall try it!
    Can I ask does the cake batter looks shiny aft the meringue n yolk batter r combined? Is it ok if there r still little bit of egg white not evenly mixed?
    Noted that this is a different version from the earlier PCC recipe. What are the differences in the cake?
    Thank u. 💐

      Hi Grace, no, it’s not okay to have egg whites not mixed in. It will show in your cake when you cut it. Difference in the amount of flour used will results in softer or more compact cake. Some like it soft, some like to have more bite. Up to one’s preference.

    Hi Jeannie, the top of my chiffon cake always has the sticky feel even it is cooked. please advise what should do?
    Thank you

      Bake until your cake has a more golden crust. However, in our tropical weather, it’s difficult to prevent that. Just dry it in warm oven if it bothers you.

    Jeannie, baked twice this week, everybody loves it & asking for more, haha. The cake doesnt rise so high as yours but it still looks gd with no cracks. Do I need to use the same Double Action BP brand? Will be baking again next week. Tks for the lovely pandan chiffon recipe.
