Rich Chocolate Chiffon Cake 巧克力心型威风蛋糕


Finally i also 败 ( shopaholic) one heart shape chiffon pan after seeing so many Chinese blogger's beautiful  heart shape chiffon pan. And this is a most expensive baking pan among all my baking pans, but i think every baker should have one, this is too cute and beautiful !! If you ask me whether i will sell this in my Kedai runcit (shop), don't think i can carry this expensive stock in my kedai, hehehe..
Also i would like to Thanks to a Hong Kong blogger who helped me to buy this pan and some other baking items, sorry for not telling her name here because i don't want to caught her in trouble later, hahaha..

this beautiful heart shape chiffon pan is made in Japan (by Cakeland) , that's why the price is high ...
I got this for about RM 1xx for a small 17cm size of pan.. Will you buy one baking pan with such high price?

record down my 1st baking experience with this new pan..

My 1st heart shape chiffon actually was not perfect..I am not sure why the cake drop off automatically from the cake pan before i can remove it from the pan, maybe i should bake it a bit longer next time..

Luckily the recipe i chosen, made this not perfect chiffon to a beautiful chiffon..

I agree that heart shape cake very nice! Sonia, your chocolate chiffon with the fruits topping is very beautiful. It must be so delicious too. I think it is worth the price if you bake with the pan often. For people like me lama-lama satu kali then not so worth it :(

Just tried this recipe. Cake turned out dry, bitter & dense. Something is wrong with the recipe. Those who are thinking of trying this recipe..... Beware! Had to throw out cake. Not edible at all. What a waste of my ingredients!!

alicia said...

Great recipe.I made cupcakes and it came out really light. Definitely a keeper

soh said...

Hi, I just baked this cake, it rised so nicely, but the moment I invert the cake, it collapse ... Any advice so I can be more careful. Thank you for sharing!

Caryn said...

Hi Sonia, I'm new to baking and your Vanilla Chiffon Cake is the first I've tried and it was a huge success! I love you blog because its so detailed and the photos help a lot.

After using your Vanilla recipe a couple times, I tried this chocolate recipe yesterday. The result is a little confusing because the Vanilla recipe came out so perfect and soft. This chocolate cake came out okay as well its soft but not as moist and the texture is a litle bit more... rubbery? I dont know how to explain it. Its not that unpleasant but its not the same. It also has a lot more holes even though I banged it a couple times on the table before putting it in the over. Any ideas?

Thank you again for all your recipes anyway. They're really a great resource. I'm going to try more!

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Caryn, this chocolate chiffon recipe is difference from vanilla chiffon, so you can't compare both. Sorry I am not very sure what went wrong with your chocolate chiffon, but try to use better quality of chocolate, usually I use 70% Lindt cocoa.

Hi,
To make a round 24cm chiffon pan,should I double all the ingredients? It's my first attempt for chiffon. Thanks

Silik Lam said...

Sonia, I saw this �� shape pan in your blog. Eventually I found it in Kappabashi during my last trip to Tokyo. Thank you.
