谢谢你的赞美。

Hi Anncoo,

This cake is very soft and fluffy. If you don't mind the strong taste and smell of egg then you must try it. My family love it very much. :)

Hi,

I tried this cake on a round baking tray this morning but not sure what went wrong...cause only the top of my cake is light...the bottom is really hard. really appreciate if sm1 could offer me sm suggestions...cause i m quite sure i followed the procedures correctly.Thanks!!!

Hi Anonymous,

You didn't fold in the flour and oil properly so it set to the bottom and cause the bottom to be hard. Do try again.

Hi Happy Flour,

Your recipe calls for 'cake flour'. I am from australia and I only see self raising flour or plain flour in the supermarket. Where do you get your cake flour from??

Thankyou in advance for your help.

Thuy,

I bought cake flour from bakery mart. Cake flour/low gluten flour give a softer texture to the chiffon cake. You can use plain flour instead.

This is just to say 'thankyou' for your advice.

Thanks for linking my blog to yours.

Phew..it's been a long time since I made paper sponge cup cakes.
Just bought some really cute cups liners just nice for this.

Hi Wendyywy,

Hehehe...it seem like I'm slow... to put up the blog link. Happy baking. :)

Wow..I can't wait to try this! I don't have paper cups with the cute designs you have, so can I use normal white paper cups? Will paper cups burn in the oven? Sorry, I never tried baking paper before. Thanks.

You have to use those paper cups which has a waxed inner surrounding or paper baking cups.

can i use wheat flOur instead Of cake flOur and plain flOur ?

Happy Flour said...

Hi Adeline,

You can give it a try. If you totally use wheat flour, the texture of the cake will be dry. You can use half wheat flour and half cake flour.

Adeline said...

can i knOw why the tOp Of the cakes that i bake have an uneven surface ?

Happy Flour said...

Hi Adeline,

I'm not sure what do you meant by uneven surface on the cake. Is it winkle crust, it was due to shrinkage during cooling. It should be your egg was not whisk till stable (thick and fluffy} enough.

Hello, I think I'm using the same souffle cup (62 * 40mm) and followed your recipe and it only filled 3 cups? Is that supposed to be?

Hi Lyn,

The muffin cup which I used is about 5cm in diameter and 2cm in height. If you're using the same muffin cup it should yield about a dozen.
