Orange Chocolate Chiffon Cake

Happy 10th Birthday! 

Nothing fanciful, just a simple and tasty orange chocolate chiffon cake! Trying to unmould the cake by hand....but flop hahaha So in the end I dusted the surface with plenty of snow powder and decorated with some canned mandarin orange. 

Top with D.I.Y decorating flags to complete the look! 

Nevermind that I could not achieve a wavy pattern look on the chiffon, the texture of the chiffon turns out well! Light and fluffy as what a chiffon should be :) 

  • 6 egg yolks
  • 25gm fine sugar
  • 75ml corn oil
  • 100ml orange juice
  • 150gm plain flour
  • 1.5 tbsp cocoa powder
  • zests from 2 oranges
  • 6 egg whites
  • 100gm fine sugar

  1. Using a wire whisk, beat yolks, sugar and zests until pale. Add in oil and orange juice. Mix well.
  2. Sift in plain flour into yolk mixture until smooth.
  3. Divide mixture into 2 portions. Sift in cocoa powder into one of the plain batter.
  4. In a clean dry bowl, beat egg whites till frothy. Add in sugar in 3 additions and beat till stiff peak forms.
  5. Divide meringue into 2 equal portions. Fold each portion into the plain batter and chocolate batter respectively.
  6. Scoop the plain batter into ungreased chiffon pan followed by the chocolate batter. Lightly drop the pan on a work top to remove any air bubbles.
  7. Bake in preheated oven at 160 deg cel for 55mins. Invert cake immediately and cool completely before removing it from pan.
