Parmesan Chiffon Cake
Parmesan chiffon cake – light and airy chiffon cake with a tint of Parmesan cheese, and topped with shredded Parmesan. Amazing recipe that you have to try.
This Parmesan chiffon cake has a very light, feathery sponge cake texture with just a subtle cheesy flavor and aroma from Parmesan cheese. The taste of the Parmesan cheese is just right, not overly cheesy. To jazz up the presentation of the cake, CP coated butter cream all over the top of the Parmesan cheesecake and then sprinkled with shredded Cheddar cheese. The savory cheese topping makes the whole cake more dimensional in taste, combining savory and sweet together. Look at the pictures, isn’t it beautiful?
