Passion Fruit Chiffon
A new cook book on chiffon cakes I bought recently have this fruity recipe. I thought it's be nice to make something refreshing and I always like the taste passion fruit. In the book it calls for a 17cm chiffon tin for this 4 egg recipe, however, through my experience, this volume always meant for more than a 17cm, so I used my 20cm tin.
The cake gives a very pretty yellow tone and tangy smell of passion fruit. I dropped some seeds in the batter while adding the juice, I did not pick it up as I thought passion fruit cake should have a little bits of seeds in there to tell people that it's PASSION FRUIT! But, we didn't quite like the bites of the seeds while eating the cake though.
The cake smells really good with the passion fruit and at some point I find it tastes a little like Orange chiffon! The texture is nothing like the Matcha Marble chiffon, but it's definitely a true blue chiffon cake. Good texture as a chiffon, and really have that lovely fruity taste.
