Chiffon Orange Cake....
Orange Chiffon cake.....one of my favourite cake ....whenever I baked chiffon cake it will make me reminiscing my childhood era ..... I have a very good Chinese neighbour ,Aunty Tan.She was a talented baker....and I was lucky to be her neighbour coz everytime she bakes ,she will make sure that we will have it.This cake is one of the cake she baked....her most famous cakes was Chiffon cake,bluberry triangle cake,chocolate fudge orange cake & Sugee or semolina cake.....
She also taught my mother how to bake all those cakes...but sadly my mother has lost her recipe book which contains all that precious recipes....We didn't see her anymore ....She moved to Penang when I'm in form 3.
Ok ,back to the cake...I share the recipe which I sourced from Alex Goh's basic recipe, I adapted it into any flavour I want. As long as I maintain the ratio of ingredients.
