Banana Chiffon Cake 香蕉戚风蛋糕

When you have banana, sure must bake some banana related cakes ^_^. Usually i will get good banana from an uncle at the pasar besar (wet market) who has banana that not using chemical to ripen it faster.

And this banana chiffon cake that i made are totally natural where i did not add in any chemical raising agent, no burden at all to enjoy as many as you can.

Banana Chiffon 香蕉戚风蛋糕
*for a 7” chiffon tube pan or a 6” Japanese tall chiffon tube pan

3 egg yolks (large or A size)
10g caster sugar
75g cake flour
35g vegetable oil ( I use sunflower oil)
90g mashed banana

3 egg white (large or A size)
40g caster sugar
1/2tsp lemon juices

  1. Immediately separate cold eggs after taken them out from the refrigerator (cold eggs separate more easily) into two mixing bowls (No oil and no water in these bowls, clean and dry bowls). Set aside and allow them return to room temperature.
  2. Add in sugar into egg yolks, immediately lightly whisk the egg yolks and sugar till light (Try to whisk immediately once sugar is added into egg yolks, egg will cover the sugar and turned hard if sit there for too long).
  3. Add in sunflower oil, mix well. Then add in mashed banana, stir well to combine. Add in flour, stir to well combine.
  4. Beat egg whites and lemon juices till foamy , gradually add in sugar in three batches and continue beat until approaching stiff peaks (meringue stand straight up with a little curve at the tip), takes about 3-4mins using speed 3 at a electric hand mixer.
  5. Take 1/3 of meringue and use a hand whisk to mix well and lighten the egg yolk batter (Do not worry you will deflate the batter at this stage )
  6. Now change hand whisk to a silicone spatula, fold in 1/3 of meringue, gently fold with egg yolk batter till slightly combined. Fold in the balance meringue and gently fold till well combined.
  7. Pour cake batter into chiffon pan, wipe off the excess batter stick on the tube or insert area. Fill batter about 80% full but not fill too full as cake has no space to rise while baking and resulted cake shrinkage. Tap pan on the counter top to remove air trapped inside the batter.
  8. Bake at pre-heated oven at 180c for 30mins at middle rack or until cooked.
  9. Once done, turn your chiffon tin upside down and cool completely before remove from the tin.
  10. Chiffon cake is ready to unmould. You can use a plastic thin spatula to run the pan and unmould the chiffon or you can unmould using bare hands method if you have mastered this skill.

I just had a slice of banana chiffon cake not so long ago brought by a colleague at work. I thought it was a very good banana chiffon cake. Now that I'm looking at yours, it looked flawless. I'm sure it tasted divine. I wish I could have a piece... May I? Ha ha ...

Thanks for sharing the recipe. I'd love to give this a go, cause I have a chiffon tube pan tucked in my kitchen cupboard waiting to be used��
