Not too bad, just a little too sweet even after cutting sugar down to 150g. Probably will have to cut down on the sugar even more if I’m making this again. Browned rather quickly so had to remove at the 40 minute mark and cover with a piece of aluminium foil before baking for another 20 minutes.
It’s been a long time since I’ve baked a chiffon cake. Bought a new pack of cake flour just for chiffon cake baking so there’ll be lots more chiffon cake posts to come lol. Continue reading
I’m starting to feature more of my fridge as I’m getting lazier and lazier. Photo qualities are getting worse as I’m just using my phone camera to take a picture inside my fridge these days.

While I was on exchange in London, I took a free copy of the Tesco magazines and spotted a recipe for black velvet cupcakes. It was my first time hearing about black velvet and so I marked the recipe down to try when I return back to Singapore. So this week, I finally went about making black velvet cupcake. For some reason, I planned to use this BBC Good Food recipe instead of the Tesco recipe and for some reason, I forgot to buy baking powder so I ended up googling at the last minute for a recipe that doesn’t need baking powder. Luckily, the first google result is a recipe that doesn’t require baking powder! Yay!
I have some left over swiss meringue buttercream from making chocolate cupcakes but because the cream was not suitable for piping, I decided to make a cake and just spread the cream on top. I always think that strawberry and raspberry should go with chocolate so I googled for a chocolate cake recipe and chanced upon Joy of Baking’s simple chocolate cake recipe.
I wanted to make some raspberry swiss meringue buttercream (because it sounds so delicious) but the price of raspberries is so high in Singapore! As I’m typing this, I’m in London and raspberries way cheaper here (and I’m eating tons of them everyday teehee). Anyway, I bought some strawberries instead and made strawberry swiss meringue buttercream instead!
