Chiffon cake can be bought for RM4 per whole cake in the night market in KL. Therefore, I’d never thought of making one since they are so cheap and widely available. That is until I saw the recipe for Green Tea Chiffon Cake in Okashi Sweet Treats Made With Love by Keiko Ishida.

Green Tea Chiffon Cake

Kids love green tea, and since I have 2 small cans of green tea powder which have been sitting in the freezer (they keep better, tip I got from the internet) for a long period of time, I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to use them.

The green tea or macha from Japan

They are expensive macha (green tea powder) which hubs bought from Japan, very rich and fragrant which make the tea bitter if taken as a beverage. When used in this recipe, it adds such a nice flavour to the green tea chiffon cake.

adapted from Okashi Sweet Treats Made With Love by Keiko Ishida
Make one 20cm cake

You’ll need

70g Cake flour
10g Green tea powder
5 Egg yolk
20g Castor Sugar
70g Water
60g Canola oil

Maringue
5 Egg white
90g Castor Sugar
10g Rice Flour

Method :

1) Preheat oven to 160C

2) Sift flour and green tea powder twice. Combine egg yolks and sugar in a bowl and mix well. Add water and canola oil and blend together. Add flour and green tea powder mixture and mix until batter becomes sticky. Set aside.

3) Make meringue. Combine sugar and rice flour. Beat egg whites until foamy. Add half of sugar and flour mixture and continue beating for a few minutes, then add remaining sugar and flour mixture and beat until egg whites are glossy, with stiff peaks.

4) Add one third of meringue into egg yolk mixture and fold in lightly, then add remaining meringue and fold to incorporate completely.

5) Pour batter into an ungreased chiffon cake tube pan. Bake for 40-50minutes. When cake is done, remove from oven and turn it over (yes, turn it over, so the cake won’t collapse), leaving it to cool.

6) Once cake has cooled completely, carefully run a knife or spatula around the sides of the cake to loosen it before inverting onto a wire rack.

The cake has a very dark green colour. I’m not sure if you get the green tea from the baking supply shop (which contain colouring), will the colour be lighter and brighter.

I packed some for neighbour to try out.

The cake uses very little fat as you can see from the recipe. It’s very light, cottony and moist, and it has a very rich tea flavour. My daughters said these are like cotton cake. The whole family, who loves green tea, like the cake so much, I made it twice in a row.

    OH MAN…… this is so yummy. Think can reproduce with a toaster oven onot? It’s all i have to play with :p

  2. Chew Lee Says:

    Your photography skills is getting better… look tempting.. I will try to bake this soon, eh.. one question, does chiffon cake has to use the ring cake pan ah? I dont have leh…

  3. ZMM Says:

    Chew Lee,

    I don’t know if it’ll work without a chiffon cake pan (those with a ring in the centre). I guess if you don’t have one.. the cake can still get successfully baked, but may crack at the top.

    Btw, I’d seen these ring pan sold in Ikea, so should be easily available in your part of the world. I thought green tea would probably be more difficult to get for you. But you can always blend your own using green tea leaves la.. I plan to make Earl Grey flavour 1 day. :)

    Samm,
    It’ll be hard to reproduce on toaster oven, because the heat distribution is not even. You can try to bake cheese cake with toaster oven. It’ll work well, as that’s how my neighbour has been baking hers. :)

    Actually, I have been following this blog silently. I am tempted to get a copy of Okashi Sweet Treats one day when I have time.

  5. ZMM Says:

    Pei Sze, It’s a good book. You should get it.
    However, if you read Chinese, a lot of Taiwanese published books have similar recipes.

  6. Melissa Says:

    Your Chiffon cake looks yummy. I love to drink green tea and eat green tea ice cream but that’s all the green tea stuff I’ve ever tried. I don’t have green tea powder hence I’ve not gotten a chance to make this.

    Since you can read Chinese there is a lot of great recipes there you can get unfortunately I don’t know how to read Chinese some of these great books would not have a chance to own it!

  7. ZMM Says:

    Melisa, yes.. there are just so many nice Chinese baking book out there. We’re literally spoilt for choice!
    I’m so glad I went to Chinese school and am able to read all these!

  8. Melissa Says:

    I hope that what ever yummy recipes from the Chinese Baking Books out that you would be able to please share it! That’s the only way I would have a chance to try those recipes :) …Thanks!!
