Hi Aunt Yochana,
I want to seek your advise, hope you can help me.
Very often, when I baked Chiffon cakes, my base is pointed (as in v-shaped), and my top cracked. Why is that so? Is it because for the top, I put it too near to the heating aliment? Thank you for you time.

Hi passionate about baking.

Yes that could one factor , another is that your batter is too much.
How did the base get a V shape?

Hi,
I know it's quite difficult to explain in words. I've separately send you an email with picture on how the "pointed" looks like. Hope you can advise. Thank you in advance!

Hi Lucy

I tried yr strawberry chiffon cake recipe today.

Noticed that there was NO mention of 'water' to be added unlike other chiffon cakes. I did not use the fresh strawberries puree but I added 2 tsp strawberry paste(bought fm Sunlik).

After mixing the cakeflr to the yolk mixture, the batter was very dry. I had no choice but to add some warm water to it (did not measure at that crucial moment becos panic, hahaha...). I just 'agak agak'.

I was praying hard hoping that the cake will turn up ok. To my surprise, it was really VERY NICE, the texture also very spongy,nice aroma.

By the way, may I know roughly how much water to be added IF I am not adding the fresh strawberry puree ??

Thanks.

Hi mscake,

For 150 pureed strawberries, you can replace it with 80 gm. of water or milk.

Actually baking is something which you have a feel in it. Agak agak is what I'm doing everyday. I don't follow the book to the T and I always plus and minus because sometimes our eggs are bigger and sometimes smaller. Even the flour is different, sometimes drier and sometimes more moisture.

Hi Aunty Yochana,

Why do we have to use Super fine flour for this chiffon recipe?

Can we use cake flour?

Fiona

Aunty Yochana said...

Hi Fiona,

you can use cake flour or even plain flour will work as well.

Hi Aunty Yochana,

How do we make strawberry puree? And how to make it fine?

Fiona

Aunty Yochana said...

Hi Fiona,

Just blend fresh strawberries and it will become puree or you can store-buy from shops that sells ingredients.
