Chocolate Chiffon Cupcake

  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 40g caster sugar 
  • 35g canola oil 
  • 60g milk (I'm using Dutch Lady chocolate milk) 
  • 70g flour ( 55g AP flour + 15g cocoa powder) 

Using a hand whisk, beat the egg yolk. Then, whisk in oil and milk. Add sifted flour and whisk until the egg yolk mixture is smooth and well combined.
Using an electric mixer, beat egg white with sugar till near stiff peaks form.
Take 1/3 egg white mixture, add it to the egg yolk mixture. Mix until well combine. Fold in the remaining egg white to the egg yolk mixture.
Fill up 3/4 of the cupcake linear. Bake in preheat oven at 140C for 20 mins then 150C for 15 mins. (this baking technique refer from my little favourite DIY)
Knock the cupcake on table top once and set aside to cool completely. 

*chocolate filling is too sweet, that's why I didn't share it here*
*cake texture is very moist and spongy, but the sweetness a bit too low for my liking (well, I'm a super sweet tooth person)* 
cake is shrink away from the cupcake lining. Isn't because of my glossy cupcake lining surface?

    Sometimes chiffon cakes do shrink a little when cooling down. I think they look great!

  3. Hi Thea,

    Chiffon cakes will shrink a little after cooling down. To avoid that, you can cool the cakes gradually by leaving them in the oven with its door open.

    You like these cakes to be sweeter... How about try eating them with custard? I think they will be super yummy!


    1. ya...custard... with chocolate. I never try it before....must be very tasty one.... slurp!

  4. hi thea, it's okay..next time you can try with other fillings....reminds me of those hokkaido cupcakes that i hv been seeing these days, there are strawberry filling too which i think quite nice if pair with vanilla sponge..thanks for linking your chiffon cupcakes with us, cheers!
