Lemon Chiffon~ 檬戚风蛋糕
(Recipe adapted & modify from carol


90g lemon juice
4 egg yolks
30g sugar
45g oil
120g plain flour
1 lemon zest


5 egg whites
70g sugar

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

2. 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.

3. With a spatula, gently fold in 1/3 of the beaten egg whites into the yolk mixture until just blended. Repeat with 1/2 of the remaining egg white. Finally, pour the resulting batter to the remaining egg white. Fold in to combine.

4. 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.

5. Bake in pre-heated oven at 160 degrees for 30mins or until a skewer inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.

6. Invert the pan immediately & let cool completely before unmould.

Hi Cathy, lemon chiffon sounds like a great flavor. I have tried the traditional pandan flavor and orange flavor but not lemo.  I have yet to try to make a chiffon cake.

Give this a try. It is really nice & refreshing. You can reduce the lemon juice if you do not want the cake to be too sour ;)
