Such a coincidence. I posted a chiffon today too.
This is my frist time seeing an Apple Chiffon and I'd say, it's very creative and I love how it looks.

For the apple juice, do you use the carton type?

Hi Hanushi,

My family miss my chiffon too. Ya, I used the carton type of apple juice.

Hi Kate, The Sweetylicious, and Jess,

Thanks for all your lovely compliments. :)
It has a stronger taste of cinnamon than apple. I think I should add apple essence.
