Matcha Marble Chiffon






                           My little boy said it's like eating cotton......






It's the third day of CNY, and we visited my sister in law as well as the rest of the family members. I baked this Matcha Marble Chiffon to bring over as our tea. A chiffon recipe I long wanted to bake, however, there were too may things in my list.

It's one of the best texture chiffon I ever baked. I really like the taste of the dry tea and together with the mild egg sponge. After it's sliced, the slices could hardly 'Stand' on it's own, it simply has that  'melt in the mouth' effect while eating it. Wow, I make it sounded like so rare. he he....  I am sure no one would say no to this beautiful cake.



Ingredients:

Top Flour   90g
Baking powder   2/3 tsp
Castor sugar   40g
Yolk   3
Salad oil   40g
Water   90ml

Egg white   4
Castor sugar   40g

Matcha powder   1tbsp
Water   2tsp


Method:

1. Sift flour and baking powder and set aside.

2. Mix matcha powder with 2tsp of water to make a paste.

3.In a bowl, mix yolks , oil and water together. Add in sugar, followed by the flour. Mix to a thick batter.

4. Whip egg white till foamy and slowly add in sugar and whip together a stiff peak.

5. Mix 1/3 of white to the flour batter and blend well. Fold the rest of the egg white in and fold them gently till well blended.

6. Take 1/4 portion of the batter to mix with the matcha paste. Fill the chiffon tin with plain batter and in between layer filled with matcha batter. With a skewer, run through the tin to create the marble effect.

7. Bake the cake at 180ç for 10 minutes, and bring down to 160'c and bake for further 30 minutes.

8. Cool the cake with the tin inverted on a wire rack till it's completely cool before slicing.

your chiffon cake looks ultra cottony soft! i can imagine it melting in my mouth. can I check if the flour used is 90g or 9g? Will like to use this recipe someday!

hanushi said...

Only 9 g of top flour ?

The cake is nicely marbled... Great job!

I have this experience of a chiffon cake slice is so soft that it can't stand on its own. Hehe, nice texture...

Sorry dears, It's 90g of flour... thanks for telling.

Honey boy said...

Hi Mrs Lim,

YOu have such SPECIAL and ODD words and descriptions to use for food that you put in your mouth. Well, they taste the green tea taste and it's neither algae or mould. Unless you don not like anything thing that's taste green tea. Both alge and mould would never cross my mind when comes to food! YOur diet must be really unique!!!

Dear honeyboy,

Just want to drop you an encouragement:)

Please continue to keep up with your good bakes and especially sharing your bakes with us. I would feel hurt by the "no EQ" comments too, nonetheless, hope you've gotten over it.

This is a very pretty, nice,cottony chiffon cake, makes me one a piece of it too;)

To the non-bloggers who want to add nasty comments out there, please be kind with your words, and adopt a good attitude of "do to others you have them do to you". Bloggers are already kind and brave enough to share their life/baking journeys with us. Lets be kind to one another..

Maybe Mrs Lim should google and know what's the taste of green tea before asking in an impolite manner. It is very obvious we don't add spirulina/algae/mould into cake flavours..

Your words had given me a strong boosting. I am over and done with it. It was that spur of moment..... I am really grateful to have people like you around me ;) i am now the happy baker as before. Shall share more goodies with you and every one else...

Again, it's kind of rare that still people out there yet to experience what and how green tea bakes taste like! Ho ho.....

Sweetie Yukari said...

hi,i am a "new" baker.I love your chiffon cake, both in texture and appearance.may i know how did you unmould it so nicely? there is always crumps whenever i unmould my chiffon cake. thx :)

Honey boy said...

Hi Sweetie Yukari,

I have a tool that is like a have slim palate knife which is suppose to help to remove cakes from tins. But I am sure using a normal knife would to the same job too. All I did was just give a quick glide around the tin with the knife slightly angled. See if this work for you? Happy baking, and do let me know if this method work for you well ya! good luck!

How did you combine the matcha paste with 1/4 of the batter? It was a nightmare when I did it. Pretty much giant matcha paste chunks that would not dissolve. I pretty much had to mix on the sides and by the time it was combined, the whipped egg whites in the batter deflated. ):

Honey boy said...

Hi Pauline,

I just scoop out that 1/3 of batter and mix it with the green tea paste. Nothing to complicated actually. U may wanna add a little water to the green tea powder to make it easier for the mixing? hope this help.
