Chocolate Chiffon Cake
Been meaning to update my blog bef our trip to KL.. hb has to go there for some meetings next week and we decided to spend the weekend there as well.. anyway i baked something for my concorde hotel kaki's .. not this chiffon cake tho but baked them chocolate chip cookies this time round...
So ok... i decided to bake chocolate chiffon cake yesterday simply cos Hairi loves to munch on chiffon cake... i knew i would not be able to see him this weekend since hes only gonna come home this afternoon and we would be long gone by then.. didnt wanna bake him the typical pandan flavor plus i was thinking of Lyn's son, Danish when i decided on chocolate flavor.. (took some to moms yesterday since Danish was there).. No doubt.. the taste, texture and surprisingly the moisture of this cake is something that i never thought it would be... I loveeeee it!! will definitely be baking this again and again..

100g caster sugar
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
7 egg yolk
