DG said...

Although you already modified it to 4 eggs, seems your cake looks bigger than mine :D Do you like it?
Until today, I still cannot have my chiffon with nice brown skin like yours, do you know why? Or maybe different tin different result?

I had this missing comments problem few months back, and it resolved on its own. Another blog that I knew of also had this problem.

OK, back to this cake, I've seen this at DG's too and is waiting for fate to bring me to black glutinous flour.
I'm definately trying this when I get my hands on it.

Kitchen Corner said...

Oh.. my first time see this special chiffon cake made with black glutinous flour. Very special one!

Happy Flour said...

Hi Sonia, Anncoo, Kitchen Corner and Bakericious,

Oh, this is also the first time I came across black glutinous rice flour. My family love this chiffon cake. It has a mild smell and taste of black glutinous rice.

Hi Anonymous and Yin,

My friend bought it from Indonesia and she share it with me. I can't find this here, in Singapore.

Happy Flour said...

Hi DG,

Hehehe, I used large egg and I used 21cm tube pan. The cake may look big but short.
Thanks, once again for sharing the flour with me so that we can get to taste this unique chiffon cake.
You are not the only one asking me this question. I think the problem lie on the oven.

Happy Flour said...

Hi Wendyywy,

At least, now I know that I'm not the only one having this problem. I'm keeping my finger cross, hopping no other further problem from blogger again.

Maybe you can get black glutinous flour from your country (Malaysia), I can't get it here in Singapore.

wow, what a special chiffon cake!! If my fren coming from Indonesia, I must get her to buy me one pack of the black Glutinous rice flour! Thanks for sharing this special cake!

Happy Flour said...

Hi Honeyboy,

You're welcome. Happy baking. :)

Had a friend who did a different method. She soaked the rice, grind it and did a double boil method mixing it into a batter. A total different approach to this method you have done.. But I must say yours a straight forward method, which a lazy person like me who try.

Anyway, I'm new to your blog. Just spent 2 hours browsing thru you blog and told myself, I've got a new avenue for more bakes. Thanks for the wonderful recipes that you've shared. Would it be possible that I extract certain of your recipes that I'll be trying (sometimes only) into my blog? My blog is strictly for selective viewers only but in the meantime, it's only me. :)

Juliana said...

I love everything that is made with glutinous flour, haven't tried chiffon cake with it...must taste so yummie...

Happy Flour said...

Hi Ajemi,

Thanks for sharing a difference method on this recipe.

You may extract certain of my recipes and post it on your blog but do link back here. Thank you for your understanding. :)

Happy Flour said...

Hi Juliana,

Hope you can get hold of the flour and give this a try. Another new taste. :)

Ajemi said...

Thanks for your generosity! Will definitely link to your block.

Hi Happy Flour, im new to your blog.You have wonderful collection of recipe especially your Wan Goh Kueh it very nice.Do u have to grease and heat up the tube pan before pouring the batter?Thanks

Happy Flour said...

Hi Anonymous,

Thanks for your compliments. :)
Are you referring to chiffon cake tube pan? You don't have to grease tube pan for baking chiffon cake.
