Pumpkin Chiffon Cake


This morning, i just realized that i have a small piece of pumpkin (only cost me RM 1) still sitting inside the fridge and I think already there for more than a week. Sometime i just buy things and planning to make something, but the end i was attracted by other recipes and totally forgot about it, hehehe..Since i have quite long did not bake a chiffon, so i added this pumpkin in this chiffon and resulted a very moist and soft chiffon, also like the natural golden colour..In fact, this small piece of pumpkin can turn into 3 chiffons...

Pumpkin Chiffon Cake

Earlier i told you i bought a cheap cake stand from Bangkok, i only use it once and it has broken into two pieces, and further the big plate also broken into pieces, only left with the stand..sob sob ..
Anyway, I save the stand and turn it into another new cake stand as I just bought a cheap plate from Tesco and stick it together, look not bad right this new cake stand, hahaha..

Your chiffon cake is undoubtedly good! Smart idea of reusing the stand for another cake stand!

daphne said...

アンゼエリン said...

I like your golden chiffon cake. Pumpkin is cheap right and nutritious too. I just made some baby food for my gal with pumpkin.

Mel said...

Chiffon cake is my one of my favourite. I should try other "flavours" like this instead of my usual orange poppy seeds.

eileenlee said...

Ah Tee said...

Look at the color!! Truly golden!! Firmy texture makes me drooling...

Fern @ To Food With Love said...

Looks soft and silky, and the colour is beautiful! Can you taste the pumpkin in the cake?
Same here, when I go shopping, I see ingredients which remind me of recipes I wanted to try, and I buy them...sometimes I buy too much and I forget to make or simply have no time, or get distracted by other recipes....and then have to throw away when it goes bad...LOL. My hubby keep complaining the the fridge and pantry have no space....either full of raw ingredients or full of leftovers! :p

I too have this bad habit of buying things with the best of intentions and promptly forgot about them the moment they are out of sight! Your chiffon cake looks really fluffy and bright.

Kimmy said...

Dear Sonia, I bought a piece of pumpkin from the wet market to make steamed pumpkin buns but the colour was pale. I baked Pumpkin Yoghurt Chiffon with the same pumpkin, the colour turns out pale too. Yours have a very nice colour. Any advice on how to choose pumpkin which has a deeper colour when cooked? Thanks

Tina said...

so colourful and spongy..

Cass @ 揾到食 said...

Very nice! I want to do a pumpkin chiffon but very lazy lately.

Sonia:
I like all types of pumpkin recipes & every time when I saw someone is posting pumpkin cake, pound cake or chiffon cake, I will take the recipes home. I like the look of your chiffon cake & they rose sooooooo tigh! I'll try out your recipe 1 day as I made a different version of chiffon cake last week. They were very, very moist, taste a bit different from normal chiffon cake but your friend here was using loaf pan to bake & everything went smoothly until I dropped the pan, so want to know the outcome? The cake looked short & wide, hahaha, I think abt 1/3 height of your chiffon cake~I'm a short person & guess that the chiffon cake that I made also looks like me! Wait till I post it later, still have 1 cake hasn't posted yet!

Jessie-CookingMoments said...

Sonia:
1 question, I just realise that you didn't use lemon juice or cream of tartar, wah, really a sifu huh, no citrus juice also can make such a successful chiffon cake.

Karen said...

Look so soft, love the golden colour.. grab one piece ya.. happy holiday :)

yvonne said...

Chiffon cakes is one of my favourite cakes. I'm reluctant to bake one because I can foretell my % of success is less than 30 hahaha!

Your golden chiffon cake is so beautiful and tempting~

Sheoh Yan said...

Sonia, this recipe is good. I will try when I have invested in a egg mixer. To be honest to you, I am still very much using hands in mixing for baking.

Little Corner of Mine said...

Beautiful! I love the color and what a great idea to use pumpkin in making chiffon cake.

Joyce @ Chunky Cooky said...

The chiffon cake really stand tall and the colour of it is gorgeous ! But I do admire your creativity in recycling broken pieces of glass ! You have made the new cake stand into such a beautiful piece, can't even notice that it's a put-together !

蓝色小厨 said...

I like the golden color like a gold~~ haha! I also can feel this cake is how moist!

Jane Chew said...

Li Shuan said...

Friend, I am back. Golden chiffon very attractive colour. I lagi teruk. my best looking most expensive wooden craft plate which I bought from Bali was confiscated by the passport control..I didnt even have a chance to use once oooo!! sad!

Malay-Kadazan girl said...

Nice new cake stand! Drooling looking at your cake. You make me crave for it loh. If I give you a pumpkin can you give me a slice of it...hehehe...

Sissi said...

Sonia, I find such things in the fridge all the time! (I often buy something without even a precise idea what to cook...). This chiffon cake has the most beautiful yellow colour I have ever seen!

sean said...

可以想象得出这蛋糕有多好吃啊!

lena said...

shaz said...

curlyfish said...

Nice,I like this, I like the natural coloring fr pumpkin.i bet the taste must very tasty yet the texture is so spongy~~ thx for sharing,gonna add this to my to do list~~;)

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Kimmy, Thanks for stopping by..Sorry i could not give you any advise on how to choose the good pumpkin because I also know little about pumpkin, what i know is organic or normal type, hehehe..Maybe you can try to buy the ready cut pumpkin(normal type) from Jusco, so far,i only buy pumpkin from Jusco.

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Jessie, yes, there is no tartar or lemon juices added into meringue, it still resulted a good chiffon. But i always use self raising flour, at least it help to rise up nicely with the rising agent in the flour.

Kit @ i-lostinausten said...

Wow! This chiffon cake looks lovely ! Love the the warm color that looks so inviting & the addintion of pumpkin seeds! I've been browsing around your blog & found your AMAZING collection of chiffon cakes! Absolutely marvelous!! I've never make chiffon cake before & don't even dare to try making this delicious cake till now. I'm tempted to try one of your chiffon recipe. Have a nice day! :)

Chic & Gorgeous Treats said...
