Milo Chiffon Cake (I)





















Modified the osmanthus chiffon recipe a little.This milo chiffon is soft and moist but lack of milo taste,i will add more milo powder in future.(*edited:i made another one which is much stronger in taste!Click here!) But still,my daughter loves it.,maybe because of the texture.Ha! She is addicted to the chiffons i make.

1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
40g sugar

Tips:
  • To know if your cake is cooked thoroughly or not,insert a skewer or satay stick onto the centre.If it comes out clean,it is done.
  • Different mixers and ovens will differ in mixing and cooking time.
  • The cake tastes better the next day as the fragrance infused the cake overnight.
