Chocolate Dots Chiffon Cake

Uh-huh, such a big hole, next time need to knock the pan harder before putting it into the oven.
Okay, I actually don't know what I should name this. The recipe that I followed called this Black Dot Chiffon Cake. What a unique name...^_^. This is actually a vanilla chiffon cake containing bits and pieces of broken up chocolate sponge cake. It is adapted from Kevin Chai's book, one of the recipes that I have successfully tried.

  • 5 egg yolks
  • 40g caster sugar (You can add more sugar if you want it sweeter.)
  • 4 tbsp cooking oil
  • 60ml milk
  • 50g raisin
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 100g flour
  • 1 slice chocolate sponge cake (diced) (You can buy a slice of cake from a bakery store or make your own.)
  • 5 egg whites
  • 1/2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 80g caster sugar
  1. Combine egg yolks, sugar, oil, milk, raisins and vanilla essence in a mixing bowl. Fold in flour until well mixed.
  2. In a clean bowl, beat egg whites and cream of tartar until mixture foams soft peaks. Add sugar in a few batches while beating at high speed. Stop the mixer when stiff peaks form.
  3. Gently fold the beaten egg whites into the egg yolks batter.
  4. Pour 1/3 of the batter into ungreased 9" tube pan.
  5. Put in some sponge cake dices and raisins.
  6. Repeat 4 and 5 until finished.
  7. Bake in a preheated oven at 170 degree Celcius for 30-40 minutes or until cooked.
  8. Remove cake from oven and invert the cake onto a surface (used sauce bottles for example) for it to cool down completely.

  3. Hi Nitya,

    Happy to have you baking along with us.

    I remember seeing this chiffon cake recipe in Kevin Chai's book. I wonder if the diced sponge cake will float or sink in the cake batter but they didn't and they are very nicely distributed.


    1. Hi Zoe, yeah, initially I had the same feeling too! So I made a conscious effort to distribute the diced sponge cake as even as possible. :)

  4. Hello Nitya, your Chocolate Dots chiffon cake is so nicely baked ... with diced sponge cake somemore... yummy! May I know what tube pan size you used for this bake?

    1. Hi Karen, thanks. Still need to improve on the texture...a lot of big holes...haha. I used a 9 inch tube pan.
