Mango Yoghurt Chiffon Cake (Cooked Dough Method)

This 'Cooked Dough Method' for chiffon cake indeed produced a good result. The texture of the chiffon cake is soft. However I think my oven can't bake chiffon cake at low temperature as the crust maybe browned but once it cool the crust turned sticky and started to peel off. :(
Recipe from Wen's Delight-Mango Yogurt Chiffon (Cooked Dough Method).

Sri Melaka Mousse Cake

I made this Sri Melaka Mousse Cake for my friend. I remembered the first time when I made this mousse cake, I shared few slices with her. She told me her family loved it very much. Recently, I met her and we had a short chat. She told me that she really missed the Sri Melaka Mousse Cake and was craving for it. Last weekend, I'm quite free so I make one whole cake for her. She was delighted. :)

It give a baker a great self-satisfaction when someone appreciate and enjoying your bakes, especially when you can see it on their facial expression. :)

Recipe from here.
