Rose Chiffon バラのシフォンケーキ

Rose Chiffon
i realize even as i began to eat light and go on a healthy eating regimen, i really don't hv to give up desserts totally. i just need to be selective thats all. like the ones i made lately, be it the ichigo daifuku (strawberry mochi), japanese souffle cheesecake or spiced poached pears, they definitely satisfied the sweet tooth in me without adding a whole lot of calories. this rose chiffon cake is no exception. this cake is light and airy and lends a subtle hint of rose, which is my favorite flavor in desserts and remains soft even after refrigeration due to the fact it uses oil instead of butter.

the cake turned out beautifully and i think i must be one of the rare people who do not experience any problem working with egg whites. i don't make chiffon often so i expect to come into some form of difficulty, be it getting the cake to the correct height or during the unmolding. fortunately, none at all. i realized alot of chiffon cakes are not frosted but i think they're nicer when spread with a thin layer of creme chantilly. makes the cake really pretty and moist. i also wanted to make an ispahan flavor initially by adding bits of lychee and raspberries but since i'm not sure if the moisture in the fruits would hinder with the rise of the cake, i decided against it. but i'll definitely try it nx time!

wow can tell u really love rose stuff with all the rose desserts u've featured on your blog. somehow i feel rose taste reminds me of bandung (but then again bandung IS made of rose syrup lol). i can nv achieve chiffon texture. how sad. it always turns out quite dense like a butter cake. what am i doing wrong? under/over beating eggwhites? overfolding of egg whites into yolks? i love how u manage to spread the cream all over evenly even iin the inner parts of the cake. (:

<span>oh yes i do like the bandung taste, alot!! :D sorry to hear your chiffons don't turn out well. i suppose if u can make macarons well u shdn't hv any problem with the beating of egg whites. maybe its the yolks? or u can try using double acting baking powder if u haven't already! i really like it coz it makes my cakes fluffier, i'm kiasu! haha. and its impt to use cake flour (low protein flour) for finer texture. and thx, its alot easier to frost the cake if both the cake & cream are cold :) </span>

Absolutely gorgeous!  I love chiffon, but I wish I was also one of the rare folks with no egg white issues because egg whites and I...  We aren't friends :P
