Hi Kitchen Corner,

Thanks, although my family don't like cheesecake but they love this. This is light with mild taste of cream cheese. :)

Hi Stephanie,

Either your oven is not hot enough or it is not well baked. Baked chiffon cake with top and bottom heating at 175C about 40-45mins depend on the size of the chiffon cake pan.

Hi I have baked cream cheese chiffon cake today and it's really good. Thanks for sharing this great recipe. Have you tried replacing butter with corn oil?

Happy Flour said...

Hi Sue,

I find that butter goes well with cream cheese but not corn oil. You can give it a try, replacing butter with corn oil.

Hi again,
I divided batter into 2 16cm tube pan and baked at 170 degree for 40min. However, there is no brown surface on the sides when I unmould the cake. I was afraid if I bake longer, it may dried up the cake. Any advice? - Sue

Hi Sue,

It should be well browned since your chiffon cake is baked in a 16cm tube pan at 170C for 40mins. The problem should be your oven.

Hi HappyFlour!

Your Cheese Chiffon Cake looks so fluffy and nice! What size of eggs are you using? I tried to bake the cake but it didn't raise eventho I beat the egg white correctly. Any suggestions?
Thanks alot sharing so nice recipes and pics

Hi Anonymous,

I'm using about 58-60g egg without egg shell. You might have over fold so defaulting the air bubbles in egg white.

Hi, yr chiffon cake looks lovely. I dont hv castor sugar at home, can I use cane sugar instead? Do I have to keep the cake in the fridge after baking (is baked with creamcheese). Thks.
