Mandarin Orange/Lemon Chiffon

Chiffon Cake

Ingredients:

100g plain flour
10g corn flour
20g caster sugar
1/4 tsp salt
5 egg yolks
60g Corn oil
100g mandarin orange/lemon juice – juiced from 2 mandarin orange and 1/2 a lemon (mix and measure out 100g)

Method:-

1. Sift flour and salt together. Set aside.
2. Mix together oil, zest and juice until well blended. Add the yolks once other ingredients are prepared. Mix well before sifting in flour mixture and mix until combined. Set aside.
3. Beat egg whites until frothy, add in cream of tartar and beat until soft peaks form. Gradually add in sugar and beat to firm peaks.
4. Lighten the batter with 1/3 portion of the meringue using a hand whisk. Then add another 1/3 portion of the meringue and gently fold. Repeat with the remaining portion until fully incorporated.
5. Pour batter into an 8″ tube pan.
6. Bang the cake pan on the kitchen bench to remove large air bubbles. Place the cake pan into a shallow non leaking pan and place these into a bigger pan. Pour hot water into the largest pan to about 1 cm in height.
7. Bake the cake on the lowest rack at 160C for 80-90 minutes or until cake is done. Tent the cake if it gets too brown. After removing cake from the oven, immediately invert to cool completely before unmoulding.

    Hi Jeannie, I followed your recipe to bake this chiffon cake. It turned out alright the first few times, even though it did not rise as much as yours. Lately I had few disasters; the cake looked alright from the outside but it has hole inside when I cut it. Was it air bubbles or something else? I tapped the pan at least 10 times before baking. Looking forward to your reply. Thanks.

      After you have poured in the batter, use a skewer to run around the batter to remove big bubbles. Tap with one hand holding the centre tube so that it does not move.
