Rainbow Chiffon Cake

When i saw few oranges sitting on my island top, then i remembered Helena baked this Orange Cocoa chiffon. Later when i browsing through My Kitchen Snippets and i found her beautiful Rainbow chiffon..So i decided to combine these two recipes into this Rainbow Chiffon Cake.

My chiffon turned out not so fluffy and tall, because i have handled the batter too much during the mixing colour process. This was due to I bake two chiffons at the same time, thinking to send one to my sister who just stay nearby..

3. Sift in cake flour and corn flour, lightly stir to mix well.
4. Mix 60g caster sugar with cream of tartar in a bowl.
5. Beat egg whites over high speed till foamy, gradually add in sugar and tartar in 3 times and beating well for each addition.
6. Take 1/3 portion of egg white mixture and use hand whisk to mix with egg yolk mixture till combine.
7. Fold the balance of egg white mixture into egg yolk mixture, combine well.
8. Equally divide the batter into four portions, add in the food colouring as per above colours (start from thick batter (cocoa) to thin batter)
9. Pour each of cake mixture into baking pan and lightly tap on the worktop to remove air bubbles.
10. Bake at pre-heated oven 170c (with fan) for 30mins or you may adjust according to your type of oven because every oven is difference.

They look pretty soft to me. I too scare of over handling the batter that is why I decided to split egg yolks batter and egg whites into portions before mixing in.
