Purple Sweet Potato Chiffon Cake
I have not baked a cake for the past 5 months! I was having doubt if I still remember the egg-white 'folding' method. Arh well, luckily the result proven that I still can manage the beating eggwhite + folding technique. Same goes to my Swimming lesson!! I still wonder If I m thrown to a pool, whether I know how to start moving my hands n legs or not! I've not in a pool for 6 years already, ever since I left my uni. not even had the chance to swim after 6 years, the reason behind, u see the pool here in kk, my godness , i probably want to blindfold myself when i put my head down the pool! dont want to see the dirty pool.
Ah Back to my cake, I like kokotaru's Purple sweet potato chiffon cake. I was quite amazed with the moisture and softness of the cake texture in her picture. I still find mine slightly overbaked if compare to hers! even I only baked at 20 mins! and again my oven always much 'hotter' than the others, I have switched to 160C , instead of 170C per recipe.

I substitute 3tbs milk with 4 tsb cream + 1tsb water! , now I m thinking, actually if we to add coconut milk also nice!!
One thing about the chiffon here is, the eggwhite must be beat until soft peak only, to maintain the moisture...
This is a keeper.!
