Blueberry Chiffon Cake

I made this light, fluffy and moist chiffon cake couple of weeks ago and now only have some time to share. It's made by my homemade blueberry sauce and a simple touch up of fresh cream with digestive cookie crumbs. My guests love it very much and so do I. Hope you like it too! OK, I got to go now, very tired today. Cheers!

Recipe from 戚枫蛋糕秘方传授 20 inches cm chiffon pan
(Egg white mixture)
Egg whites 180g
Caster sugar  90g
Corn flour 10g
(Egg yolk mixture)
Egg yolk 70g
Water 20g
Vegetable oil 60g
Blueberry sauce 80g
Lemon juice 10g
plain flour 90g
Caster sugar 20g
Fresh Cream 300ml
Some digestive biscuits crumbs
Some fresh blueberries and mint leaves
  1. Blueberry sauce was made with 125g fresh blueberries, splash of water, half of lemon juice and a tablespoon of caster sugar. Cook all the ingredients in a medium low heat until it become a not too thick consistency. Cool and ready to use.
  2. Mix all the egg yolks mixture except flour. When everything well combined then add in sifted flour. Mix everything well combine and no lumps left. The mixture would be quite thick and smooth.
  3. Beat the egg whites in a clean large bowl until peak foam. Gradually add in sugar, one tablespoon at a time. Then finally add in corn flour. Make sure the corn flour mix well in the egg mixture. The egg whites mixture should be peak foam, smooth and shiny.
  4. Gently fold in 1/3 of the egg whites mixture into the egg yolks mixture. When everything well combine then gently fold in the 1/2 of the remaining egg whites mixture. Lastly, fold in the remaining egg whites mixture. 
  5. Pour the well mix mixture into a 20cm chiffon cake tin and bake at a 160-170'C preheated oven for 40 - 50 minutes. After baked, let the baked cake turn upside down for cooling before unmold it.
  6. Unmold the cake and frost with whipped cream and coat the cookies crumb at the side.

Grace,
Is there a typo?
20 inches pan? That'll be huge.

I love the colour of your cake, the last time I made this, the colour wasn't this nice :)

Hi Grace,
You're so good with Chiffon cakes. All of them turned out so beautifully. Its been a long long time since I bake Chiffon cake. Wonder if I could make as nice as yours. Btw, I'm no good at gm or spoon measurement when the recipe says 180g egg whites or 1 tbsp butter. Can you kindly let me know how many eggs would that be in order to achieve 180g & how many grm butter = 1 tbsp. Thanks for your great help.

Honey Bee Sweets said...

The color of the chiffon is wonderful! Almost like purplish pink. The texture looks great too. Will try this out when I have time to make the blueberry sauce. 

Kitchen Corner said...

Hello to my dear supporter, thank you so much for leaving me lovely comments. That's very encouraging!

Hello Alice, the recipe call for very accurate egg yolks and whites. So it has to be measured in grams instead of quantity of eggs. As all eggs are in different sizes, I hardly tell how many eggs it needed in this recipe. But, it's approximately 6 medium eggs. Beside, this recipe ask for vegetable oil instead of butter, so don't worry about the measurement of tablespoon. Cheers!

the purple / blue hue is beautiful..

Hello Grace,
Just would like to seek your help as to the use of the oven fan function. Can I use it for baking bread or cakes only. TQ.

Sue Chua said...

Hi Grace, it's a nice cake. May I know what fresh cream are you using? From the photo, it's not pure white colour. It's creamy yellow colour. It looks the same as those cake in Four Season bakery shop. So I'm very curious what fresh cream you are using. So far I always use nondairy whipped cream from Phoon Huat and quite sick of the taste already.

Kitchen Corner said...

Hi Delphine,
I think for bread baking better not to use fan as it might cause the bread dry and lose it texture. As for me, cakes like chiffon or sponge cake I would prefer fan oven. For cookies, it depends on which recipe I use to.

Hi Sue Chua,
I normally don't fix on using any brand or whipped or nondairy or fresh cream. It depends on which supermarket I went and what is available on the market. For this, I use anchor whipping cream from Giant. The color has a bit of yellowish and also because of the sunlight reflection from my window :) I added some vanilla for the whipping cream to enhance the flavor. Cheers!

Hi Yenny,
I feel so touched :) thanks for dropping here and very sorry that I'm slow in updating my blog. I seldom bake lately as my little son just reach his 9th month. I did bake sometime but there were repeated recipes so no point to post them up again. Thanks again for your all time support, I will update once I manage to bake some new stuffs. Have a nice day!

yin said...

Hi Grace, your chiffon cakes always turn out so well. Mine always start to shrink when it is cooked while still in the oven. I have tried starting baking at 170C for 15 mins then lower it to 160C, and also baking it at 170C all throughout but the result is still the same. Would you kindly advise, please? Thank you
