Lime Chiffon Cake
Today I tried out a chiffon cake recipe that I copied from a recipe book at my parents’ house. No, it was not my mom’s book; it was my younger sister’s. She left several recipe books there so that she can cook/bake when she stays there with her kids for a few weeks in summer and winter.
My oven can take the smallest (10 cm, I guess) chiffon pan only, so I needed to scale the recipe in half. (Actually bigger ones CAN fit in there, but it does not leave enough space to bake a chiffon cake successfully.) The cake rose alright and didn’t fall at all after it was cooled, so I was very happy. But as you can see, I did a terrible job removing the cake from the pan. See the ragged bottom, I mean, the top in this photo? Well, such a problem should have been easily solved with some whipping cream… if I had any. I thought I had some in the fridge, but of course, I was wrong. And it was raining outside. Hence, this photo. ;P But the cake tasted good.
For my next attempt, I’ll buy a better knife – or maybe, whipping cream. ;)
