Japanese MamaPan Chiffon Cake

Let’s use Japanese MamaPan Chiffon Cake Mix today to bake a chiffon cake which is light, fine, airy, fluffy, and bouncy. Let’s get started!
- 120g of MamaPan Chiffon Cake Mix
- 4 medium eggs at room temperature
- 40g sugar
- 30g milk (it is possible to substitute milk with water)
- Adjust oven rack to middle position and preheat oven to 170°C. Separate 4 medium eggs to yolk and white. Keep the yolks in a medium bowl and whites in a large bowl.
- Whisk the yolks and milk together. Mix well. Add in MamaPan Chiffon Cake Mix. Whisk until cake mix is incorporated and there are no lumps in the batter.
- Whisk egg whites until opaque, foamy and bubbly. Add in sugar in small increments while whisking. Continue to whisk until stiff peak is formed.
- Whisk in 1/3 of egg white mixture into the batter. Whisk until it is homogeneous throughout the batter.
- Gently fold in another 1/3 of the egg white mixture into the batter without breaking the air bubbles.
- Now transfer the batter into the remaining 1/3 egg whites. Mix well without breaking the air bubbles. There should not be any large lumps of egg white in the mixture.
- Pour cake mixture into a 17cm chiffon cake baking tin. Hold both edges of the cake tin and drop it gently on the kitchen counter a few times to remove air.
- Bake at 170°C for 30 – 35 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean and the top of the cake is golden brown and springs back to the touch. Temperature and time setting may need to be adjusted depending on the oven.
- Remove from oven and cool it upside down on a cooling rack.
It is also possible to add in flavourings such as orange, lemon and even earl grey into the batter to create more interesting cakes.
