Fluffy Plain Chiffon Cake

Fluffy Plain Chiffon Cake

This recipe uses one 18 cm chiffon cake pan. My older sister taught me this recipe a while ago. Anybody who receives this chiffon cake will be happy.

Please don't mix Step 3 too much. When you add the egg whites and yolks together, if the egg whites are too hard, the yolks won't mix in well and at the end, the whites will form clumps. Recipe by Rearea cheese.

    Once it's completely cooled, insert a knife between the cake dish and the cake, and spin it around once. Insert a bamboo skewer between the cake and the center part of the mold. Lastly, take it out with a knife.

  13. Change

    It should look like this.

  14. Change

    It's perfectly delicious just like that but this time I added whipped cream.

    Because it varies, after 30 minutes of baking, if the cake makes a "puff" noise when touched, bake for an additional 5-10 minutes. The total baking time should be around 40-45 minutes.
