Marbled Orange Chocolate Chiffon


Zesty, chocolaty, orangy! Combined into a 21 cm tube pan what could go wrong? my latest experiment with chocolate and orange combi is a marbled chiffon cake! i had seen a couple of posts on marbled chiffon and they looked really pretty i decided to give it a try and more pics for you peeps!







I love the marble effect texture wise soft and fluffy, sweetness is just right with the chocolate being bitter sweet and orange zesty sweet i love this! Thanks to Jessie of Hearty Bakes for sharing these 2 recipes!

I'm submitting this post to Aspiring Bakers #1: Chiffon Cakes (Nov 2010) hosted by Small Small Baker.

Marbled Orange Chocolate Chiffon
(adapted from Hearty Bakes at here & here with slight modifications)

  2. Add oil, orange juice, orange zest and stir till combined.
  3. Sieve in cake flour and stir to combine.
  4. Using a electric beater, whisk egg whites and sugar until stiff peaks forms.
  5. Fold 1/3 egg whites into yolk mixture gently, followed by the remaining egg whites.
  6. Set aside. Preheat oven at 170°C.
Ingredients for Chocolate Chiffon
(A)
30g semi-sweet chocolate (i used cadbury gold 70% cocoa)
50ml oil

(B)
2 egg yolks
40g sugar

(C)
80ml water

(D)
40g cake flour
40g cocoa powder

(E)
4 egg whites
30g sugar

Method
  1. Double-boil (A), stir till combined and set aside to cool.
  2. Whisk (B) till pale in color, stir in chocolate mixture from step 1.

Now prepare a 21cm tube pan, following the pictures below to create the marbled effect chiffon, baked in the preheated oven at 170°C for 50mins. Remove from oven once done and over turn the pan to cool the chiffon.

*Note to prevent the top of the chiffon over browning, cover the top of the tube pan with a piece of aluminum foil.

hanushi said...

Wah, you did the two batter separately? Nice effort and effect!!! :)

Want to ask you do you cover the top of the tube pan with a piece of aluminum foil before you put in the oven or during the baking? :)

j3ss kitch3n said...

hanushi, thanks and yes i did the 2 batter separately.

I cover the top of the tube pan halfway through the baking when the top starts to look done then at the last 10mins of the baking time i remove the foil again for a evenly brown top. hope this helps!
