 WaterMelon Chiffon~  西瓜戚风蛋糕
(Recipe adapted & modify from

85g Plain flour
6 egg yolks
40g caster sugar
60g milk
40g corn oil

watermelon batter:
5g strawberry powder
1 Tbsp poppy seeds

skin batter:
3g matcha powder

60g caster sugar
6 egg whites

1. In a mixing bowl, whisk egg yolks & sugar together. Add in oil & milk. Add in sifted flour.

2. Divide the yolk batter into 2 portions (2/3 for watermelon & 1/3 for skin). Add in strawberry powder & poppy seeds into one portion & green tea powder into another.

3. In a clean, dry mixing bowl, beat egg whites with an electric mixer on low speed until mixture becomes frothy & foamy. Turn to high speed & gradually beat in the sugar until soft peaks forms.

4. Divide the meringues into 2 portions & fold in to the yolk batter to combine.

5. Pour batter into a tube pan. Tap the pan lightly on a table top to get rid of any trapped air bubbles in the batter.

6. Bake in pre-heated oven at 160 degrees for 40mins.
