wow nice crust...very evenly brown.
Did you use the Phoon Huat Aluminium Pan or the heavy metal type? Mine is from Phoon doesn't give such a brown crust even after using it for at least 6 to 8 times. How do you do it? Did you increase the temperature 5 minutes before the baking time is up?

Got to hear from you on this...

Real nice...and neat.

How to bake the cake into soft and fluffy? I baked many times for chiffon cakes. Only the previous 2 times are successfully baked but the texture of cake is not as soft or taller from ur posted pic.. Does tat have to do with egg white? Do I have to continue to beat the egg white further till very stiff peak form? Pls kindly advise. Thanks =)

Hi Irene's Footprints,

I bought my aluminum tube pan from Phoon Huat too. Actually I don't know how long I heated up my oven. Every time, once I get all my ingredients ready, I will on the oven. I always baked my chiffon cakes at 175C for 40-45mins and it came out evenly brown.

Hi Anonymous,

Your egg white must whisk until the right stage, you can refer to my previous post 'Medium Stiff Peak' and do not over fold. Once you're familiar with the two steps, your chiffon cake will turn out perfect. Don't give up practice make perfect. Happy baking. :)
