Chocolate Chiffon Cake

This is my second chiffon cake in ten days.  My first one, Pandan Chiffon Cake, was a good first attempt if I do say so myself.

Today, I decided to try my hand at Chocolate Chiffon Cake.


  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons instant coffee
  • 3/4 cup boiling water
  • 1 3/4 cups plain flour
  • 1 3/4 cups sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 8 egg whites
  • 7 egg yolks
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar

I followed the recipe found here, except I used eight egg whites and seven egg yolks (instead of the seven of each given in the recipe).

Verdict:  Very nice, light and moist.  Not super sweet, which is fine by me.  You could always put icing on it to make it sweeter.
