I have quite long didn't bake a chiffon cake as I  have been busy baking with artisan bread sourdough ^_^ . Since i have  Panasonic Electric Oven NB-H3800SSK  , so try it out with a new flavours of chiffon cake that i have been thinking to make, Earl Grey tea and Strawberry, and it seem they are a good combo, nice !

15g caster sugar
50g corn oil
30g water
30g milk
100g cake flour

4 egg white (A size)
70g caster sugar
1/4tsp cream of tartar

30g pure strawberry paste
2 sachets Earl grey tea, process in a blender till fine

Method
1.      In a saucepan, cook 100g fresh chopped strawberry with 1 cup water over low heat till thick paste. Set aside to cool before use.
2.      Immediately separate cold eggs after taken them out from the refrigerator (cold eggs separate more easily) into two mixing bowls (No oil and no water in these bowls, clean and dry bowls). Set aside and allow them return to room temperature.
3.      Add sugar into egg yolks, immediately lightly whisk the egg yolks and sugar till light.
4.      Add in corn oil, mix well. Then add in milk and water, stir well to combine. Add in flour , stir to well combine.
5.      Beat egg whites and cream of tartar till foamy , gradually add in sugar in there batches and continue beat until soft peak formed.
6.      Take 1/3 of meringue and use a hand whisk to mix well and lighten the egg yolk batter (Do not worry you will deflate the batter at this stage )
7.      Now change hand whisk to a silicone spatula, fold in 1/3 of meringue, gently fold with egg yolk batter till slightly combined. Fold in the balance meringue and gently fold till well combined.
8.      Scoop out 200g batter , and mix with strawberry paste, add a drop of pink food colouring (optional) ,mix well. Add the rest of batter with fine Earl grey tea leaves.
9.      Spoon the two batters, Earl grey and strawberry batter, alternately into the prepare chiffon tube pan . Using a butter knife, gently swirl it around the mixture in the tin a few times to create a marbled effect. Tap the tin to remove any air bubbles. 
10.   Bake at a pre-heated Panasonic electric oven at 190c for 50mins (Upper and Lower heat) or until cooked. Every oven is difference, please adjust the temperature accordingly.

Hi there! Thanks for sharing your recipes with us, I always enjoy seeing your creations! By the way, I think steps 9 and 10 above may have some errors? There seems to be additional instructions in step 9, and the temperature seems too high for chiffon cakes in step 10?

Regards,
Amy

Hi Amy, Thanks for highlight the error, and i have corrected the recipe. As for the temperature, the temp is correct as this time i baked with Panasonic electric oven, so every oven is difference. You can adjust accordingly to your oven.

Lim,same yummy taste if compare earlier i used built in oven . The difference with built in oven is this oven temp need to increased by 20C as the heat is not so high if compare built in oven . Also the max heat is up to 230C so like baking sourdough is not possible in this oven which required at least 250C. Nevertheless this Panasonic oven price is affordable, it has big volume , fan forced function , simple to operate , adequate functions and another function I like is to proof bread dough in this oven .
