Banana chiffon cake


mmhmmm. have i got the perfect banana cake recipe to share with all you monkeys! (haha?)
i've always loved chiffon cakes over western butter cakes, though they're both cakes, and cakes are good, therefore i don't really have a strong argument. 

anyhow, chiffons are typically known (and admired) for their wonderfully light texture and springiness as they are formed by the whipping of egg whites, making it a popular choice for traditional chinese cakes.


if you've been following long enough, you would've realised my love for these cakes. i don't have a proper oven to bake with after our oven popped one time baking bread, and we discovered the halogen oven (a kinda portable mini oven) with which my mum decided was enough for her to make sunday roast with. 

i, on the other hand found it was utter useless with baking butter sponges and western cakes with, hence been focusing on experimenting with chiffons as part of my baking adventures. (rainbow chiffon, pandan, sweet potato, orange, strawberry and green tea)


they are, however, also known for the technicality of their bake. although, once you've grasped the method, you'll be roaring and experimenting with various flavours! they say use ripe bananas for proper, intense monkey flavour. but who cares about the degree of banana ripeness if at the end of the day you get this?!?!?: 


yeah.

here's the link to the recipe! it worked wonders for me first time round :)
