    What a beautiful chiffon. You have small pores of each your chiffon, is it because you use water bath method for baking chiffon ?
    And is it mean place the water under rack level to keep the moist air while oven. The water and the pan chiffon are in different place ?

      You can place the water under the rack level which is steam baking. Some find that works too. I place the chiffon pan into another seamless pan before placing these into another larger pan holding a shallow water to create a water bath.

      my description is so bad huh?


    • jeannietay said

      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. Is this description clearer?
