Hi, happy flour,
I tried this recipe the cake shrink after cool down, do you know why can advice? Thanks

Happy Flour said...

Hi Anonymous,

You might have over whipped the egg whites, the cake will rise very high during baking process and it collapsed during cooling.

Haiya.. I thought this time i whipped a perfect one :) stiff peak is very hard meringue right even you turn the bowl it wont fall down? Never have a success cake:( the cake crack after 5-10 min in the oven, after cool down it was very moist and not fluffy. Any more tips? Hehe..Thanks for your advice will try it again after I finished this one.

Hi Anonymous,

Either you had over folded the batter or not well baked. Chiffon cake need a little more practice then you can master it. Don't give up.
