Lemon Chiffon Cake Recipe

Lemon Chiffon Cake

This my lemon chiffon cake. I love the lemony essence and the pillowy soft texture of this chiffon cake.

Other than lemon flavor, I also love coffee and pandan (screwpine leaf) chiffon cake.

What kind of chiffon cake do you like?

    Pandan flavour is my favourite. I usually get mine from pasar malam. Cos it’s so soft, can be quite addictive. Finish off within minutes. Hahaha…well, it’s not fattening rite?

    i think i’ll go for chiffon as well :) and in a complete contrast a dense chocolate cake with probably just 2 tbs of flour. Depends really on the mood :P
    This slice looks perfect !

    Hi Rasa Malaysia,

    I am a big fan of your blog. Do you happen to know any Sarawakian recipes? I was born there but am a transplant in the US and would love to know if there is a Malaysian out there who knows the ingredients for “kampua mee” – the famous dry noodle dish from Sarawak.

    Your cake looks lovely! So tall and fluffy! I was always scared of making chiffon cake what with the beating of egg whites and getting the cake to be fluffy…but I prevailed and made on too (as part of this month’s Daring Bakers challenge)! :) It is nowhere near as fluffy looking as your’s though :)

    I like pandan too!

    I love lemon so when I stumbled across your recipe for lemon chiffon cake I decided I had to try it. I thought it was a good recipe to try for someone like me (who has never made a cake from scratch before).

    The next time I make this cake I think I’ll have to halve the recipe. I tried it today and it turned out wonderfully! :) Only, it made so much batter that while it was cooking some of the batter fell to the bottom of the oven and caused a very small fire (I caught it right away and no harm was caused).

    Despite this, the cake was a success and everyone loved it. :)

    I’m going to try to make a cake for my mother’s birthday next month…this time without any fire! *lol*

    Thank you for posting this recipe on your blog. :) I will be coming back to find more delicious recipes.

    I love baking! I looked up a recipe for a Japanese Strawberry shortcake and realized that the method was very similar to a chiffon cake style, and that’s what got me into it =) I just made my first two, yesterday and the day before, but both of them turned out rock hard…Though my second one wasn’t as horrific; I must be doing something wrong, huh? I must try your version though! Nice pics!

    I have been looking for a chiffon cake recipe without the use of cake flour. I have never had lemon chiffon cake before but theres always the first time right?

    I tried this recipe last night. The cake was not as moist as I thought it would be. Perhaps a cake flour would be better or substitute water for milk.

    • It’s been a while since I make this cake. I do remember it is a little dry. I didn’t mind it much since I enjoyed it with a cup of 3-in-1 mixed instant coffee :) I will try your suggestions next time.

    Hi, Sorry to take you off the track !!! Does anyone have the recipe for daging Rendang. Not the one in a curry sauce. The one that as big pieces of meat and in a red or dark brown dry sauce. You can get in most malay restaurants or at malay weddings. I use to get at a Singapore resturant in Manchester but it as now closed. Missing it very much. I also use to eat it in Brunei on a regular basis. Would love if some one could share their recipe thanks..

  16. Hi, I’m new in baking. still trying very hard. tried your recipe but it doesn’t turn out like it supposed to be. The cake was not fluffy at all, what’s wrong? Is it because the egg whites was not beaten enough? I used hand to whisk them.

    Hi, wondering if you could suggest how I would use this recipe to make a pandan version? I got a hold of a bunch of pandan leaves the other day and now wondering what to do with it…what do I do with the pandan leaves so that I can add to this cake?

    can anyone help me, my mum always tried to make this type of cake but failed everytime when we bake it. the top will burnt (like dark not brown) and inside is still uncooked. the oven was preheated to 180c. umm and we got hard peaks when beating the egg whites
    help anyone?

  19. Wonderful site. Plenty of useful information here.
    I’m sending it to several friends ans also sharing in delicious.

    And naturally, thanks for your effort!

  20. I have seen plenty of useful things on your web site about pcs.
    However, I have got the thoughts and opinions that notebooks are still not quite powerful
    sufficiently to be a sensible choice if you frequently do things that require
    many power, for example video editing and enhancing. But for net
    surfing, statement processing, and quite a few other typical computer work they are perfectly, provided you do not mind the small screen size.
    Thank you for sharing your thinking.
