Chocolate Chocolate Chip Chiffon

No no. The post tittle is not a typo error. Wanted to bake another chiffon cake for the weekend so that we have something to munch on. Since my helper loves chocolate cake so much, i decided to bake us a chocolate chiffon.

So I really really need to finish my pack of Hershey's Milk Chocolate chips as I want to try the semi sweet ones. Been reading Rei's blog for a while on her chiffon cake tips. Very good read.. I read and study everything she wrote and finally got the hang of it.

But when i attempt her recipe, it doesn't turn out as nice as hers. The texture is just slightly better than the Blueberries Cheese Chiffon. Less holes and the chocolate chips do not sink entirely to the bottom, some are still at the middle. (Maybe because i did not bang the cake tin after pouring the batter in) It also does not crack as much.

I was just wondering, when u are not satisfied with the result of one recipe, do u attempt it till u are satisfied or u would go to the next one? For me, i prefer to go to the next one.

  1. hihi,针对你说纸杯油油的问题,不好意思帮不到你,我也不懂为什么,因为之前我也试过这样的问题,不过是不同的纸杯和食谱,所以不懂是那一方的问题。

  2. 是咯。。。油油送人吃多么不好看!
