Latte Chiffon

 
Who likes Latte? Me! Who likes Chiffon cake? Me! This subtle coffee flavored chiffon cake is made for all coffee lovers out there. This fluffy and moist sponge cake goes so well with what else, but a warm cuppa latte. If you are caffeine intolerant, using decaffeinated coffee would be most ideal.

In this day and age, health-conscious people and would avoid overly sweetened desserts and cakes. Like me. The level of sweetness errs towards the milder side so if you have a sweet tooth, you might need to adjust with more sugar.

This recipe is adapted from one my favorite Japanese pâtissier, Chef Yamashita’s third cookbook – “Tanoshii ke-ki”. You can find his very own Japanese artisan pâtisserie here in Singapore.

Pour batter into chiffon tin and use a skewer to run round batter a few times to release large air bubbles.

I like to run a skewer around the batter to release large air bubbles.

Place into preheated oven and bake for 35 – 40 mins, until a skewer inserted comes out clean.

Invert the cake tin so that the funnel sits on a wire rack or base of a bowl.

In Chef Yamashita's book, he inverted it directly onto a wire rack. without propping it on a bowl.
