Sponge Chiffon Cake

Are you confused with my blog title? So is it a sponge cake or a chiffon cake? Well, I'm not sure either. All I know that it was really soft and moist and it turns out more like a sponge cake but I used a chiffon cake recipe. Hmm, great!

I made this on a Saturday afternoon while Bryan was enjoying his tv time. Actually he is in front of the tv on most times if he is awake but as usual, he never sits more than 5 mins at a time. So in between whatevers on tv, he will be running about or calling out for me or wanting me to carry him (still!) like 20 times within one cartoon show. Anyway ...



To start things off, I dont have a chiffon pan, so I used my regular 8" round pan and I think its because of this that it turned out more spongy than being a real chiffon. It didnt have the height of the pan to help it rise nicely. But it was a good try for me. My first time. I've read of so many failures in attempting chiffon cake recipes but I was happy with mine.

Ate some for Sunday breakfast, then tapau-ed some for in-laws to take back home. Left a few more for breakfast today and some for my mom to try this morning. Hope she likes it. So this is how I usually spend my weekends lah .. stay home and be a good mother & housewife *blek*.

Hi Bryan's mommy, I just noticed that you are going to set up another blog "buttery fingers". For sure I will visit the blog coz I love baking but I have zero knowledge and baking skills. So I gotto learn from you.
Oh yea, I like your blog title too...Sounds so yummy!

Actually it has been some time I did not visit your blog and Bryan has grown up so much. He has yet turn three?

About my blog header, I am indeed lucky that my husband is good in designing. Really gotto thank him.

yummeh! nemind la, both sponge and chiffon cakes are delish, so its good to have a cake like that, eh? ;D

bryan is so much like gibran. gibran would watch tv too but would move around doing all sorts of "projects" every 5 minutes or so!
