Gula Melaka Chiffon

I need to use up the left over coconut milk from my last bake of Vegan Coconut Cupcakes, so i decided to make this Gula Melaka Chiffon that is on my to do list for the longest time hehe!





































Very fragrant! but i find it not as light as all the chiffon cakes, its still soft though hmmm but it really delicious!

Jess, your chiffon cake is just perfect! Nice shape and no cracks~~ It does look more rich and dense in texture, but I bet it must be very fragrant. -drools-
Thanks for sharing.

Jess,
Maybe a small pinch of baking soda will make it softer. The gula melaka could be too acidic and cause the cake to feel, dense. The baking soda will neutralise the acidity of the palm sugar.
I did my own version of this before and mine was soft, just like my other chiffon cakes.

Your chiffon looks flawless. Saw lots of comments about making it less denser...very interesting.

I made this chiffon before (but not in my blog) and turned out well too. Generally, I find that this recipe and book is quite good.

Lots of good reviews on Kevin Chai chiffon book. I tried baking his banana chiffon and was quite nice. Love to try out this recipe too, yours look moist and nicely brown! Great job!

Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella said...

Do you know that I've never made a chiffon cake? I must fix this! Thus looks fantastic :D

Angie's Recipes said...

Soft, spongy, and smooth---A wonderful chiffon!

Pei-Lin@Dodol and Mochi said...

Yea, gula melaka one is a good variation to the usual chiffon flavors ... Make sure to use "unadulterated" gula melaka though ... Get those produced in the Malaysian state of Terengganu or Melaka! Quality, pure one melts even at room temperature!!!
