Orange Chiffon Cake

Yesterday session was the 4th session of BITC training and we had a chance to make this chiffon cake. In fact, I didn't make chiffon cake before. One reason is I do not have a proper tin to make this cake. Another reason is, due to its appearance. It is not appealing to me (I didn't try chiffon cake before as well) and thus I didn't bother to try it out.

However, after trying the chiffon cake which I made in BTIC, I realise it is a very delicious cake. The texture is moist , soft and it is just delicious as it is ,without adding any topping. I am sure that I will be making chiffon cake often.

Since it is a very soft and airy cake, the most challenging part is to un-mold the cake. We had to pay special attention on this part, otherwise the cake will have dents and it might even collapse. For my cake, I can un-mold nicely for half of the cake, but there was a big cut in the other side of the cake. Require more practises to perfect.
Here are the ingredients and methods, (make 23cm round cake)
  • Cake flour 120g
  • Plain flour 100g
  • Baking powder 11g
  • salt 2g
  • Egg Yolks 9nos
  • Sugar 100g
  • Liquid 160g (water -140g, orange juice- 20g)


  • Vegetable oil 150g

Group 4

  • Egg whites 9nos
  • sugar 210 g
  • Cream of tar tar 2g
  1. Sift group 1, set aside
  2. Using electric mixer, whisk group 4 till soft peak form
  3. Mix well group2 and group3. Add in Group1.
  4. Fold in half of the group 4 into the flour-liquid mixture till combine. Gently fold in the balance.
  5. Place in 23cm chiffon tin (do not grease it) and bake in 180 degree C preheated oven for 1 hour.
  6. Once bake, invert upside down to cool before removing it from the tin.
  7. Once cool, gently remove it and ready to serve. Enjoy!
