Blueberry Chiffon Cake 蓝莓戚风蛋糕 (中英食谱教程)

I am beginning to enjoy baking chiffon cake as it is really versatile and one can make it in a wide variety of flavours using fruit puree, jams, juices, extracts, citrus zests, liquer, etc. Here's sharing my 3rd chiffon cake using fresh blueberries shortly after baking a Gula Melaka flavoured one.

Blueberry Chiffon Cake 
(中文食谱参考Carol‘s 烘焙新手书, recipe modified and translated to English by Baking Taitai)

Ingredients (makes one 8 inch tube pan)
6 egg yolks (I used cold eggs weighing 65g each )
30g caster sugar
40g vegetable oil (I used sunflower oil) 
120g cake flour  (I used premium Blue Jacket cake flour
125g fresh blueberries

6 egg whites (I used cold eggs weighing 65g each )
50g caster sugar
1 tsp lemon juice

6粒 蛋黄
30克 细砂糖
40克 食油(我用
120克 低筋面粉(我用水手牌超级蛋糕粉

125g 新鲜蓝莓

6粒 蛋白
50克 细砂糖

Method 方法:

1. Puree the blueberries. 

2. Use a hand whisk to beat the egg yolks and sugar, mix well then add in the oil, mix well before adding in the blueberry puree and whisk till well combined. 
2。将蛋黄+ 细砂糖用打蛋器搅拌均匀,再将植物油加入搅拌均匀,然后将新鲜蓝莓泥加入搅拌均匀。

3. Sift in the cake flour 1/2 at a time and mix well till no trace of flour is seen. (Mix swiftly to avoid gluten forming which will affect the texture of cake) 
3。低筋面粉分2次过筛加入混合搅拌均匀成为无粉粒的面糊。搅拌过程尽量快速, 避免面粉产生筋性影响口感)

4. In another bowl, use an electric mixer to beat the egg whites using medium speed till frothy then add in the lemon juice. Continue to beat till soft peak, gradually add in caster sugar and continue to beat until stiff peak.
4。在另一个钢盆,用电动搅拌器用中速搅打蛋白到泡沫状,加入柠檬汁。继续搅打到湿性发泡,逐渐加入细砂糖,继续打成尾端挺立的蛋白霜 - 干性发泡。

5. Add the meringue into the egg yolk batter 1/3 at a time, each time gently mixed well before adding the next. When done, pour the batter into the chiffon pan.  

6. Bake in a pre-heated oven on the lowest rack at 150 degree Celcius top/bottom heat for 45~55mins.
6。放入预热烤箱以150摄氏度上下火烤约 45~55分钟。

7. Remove from oven, immediately invert cake until completely cooled.

 The cooking temperature as suggested in all my recipes serve as a guideline. Every oven has different thermostat, you may have to adjust the temperature and timing to suit your oven. Different brand of ingredients have different composites, thus there may be a slight difference in the end result.  食谱里的烘烤温度和时间只是供参考,每一架烤炉的恒温器都不同,请自己调适。不同品牌的材料有不同的复合材料,所以最终成品有可能稍有不同。

hi would like to know do you use fan force oven? i've tried baking this recipe but my chiffon cracks, is there anything ive done wrong?

Baking Taitai said...

Hi Bobbejaan, fan forced is not required when baking a chiffon cake, just use top and bottom heat will do. It is perfectly normal for chiffon cake to have a slightly cracked top, but if it starts to crack too much, you should cover the top with an aluminium foiled spray with some oil so it will not stick on the cake and you can also lower the temperature.
