Orange Chocolate Chiffon Cake

Orange Chocolate Chiffon CakeCottony Soft Orange Chocolate Chiffon Cake

First thing first, Happy Lunar New Year to all Chinese readers out there! i hope you all enjoyed the celebration as much as i do. As usual, i’m still trying to find time to update the blog as much as i can. There’s just so much going on, more than what i could handle at the moment. That being said, i know a common issue with everyone now, TOO MANY mandarin oranges at home! i have the same issue and thus this chiffon cake post! This is a really simple bake and it does get rid of the oranges and who could resist such cottony soft cakes?

i have to admit, i prefer the mandarin oranges rinds more than regular oranges. i kinda feel it perfumes the cake better 😀

  1. Hi Charlynn, baked this cake last weekend and everyone loved this cake. It’s the most light and moist chiffon cake that I’ve ever made. I realised that you don’t have any new post this year 2017. I’m a homebaker myself and love to try all sorts of chiffon cake recipes and also other cakes.
