Tiger Chiffon Cake


Which version do you prefer? Cute🐯 or Stripy🐅 (below)?

Some of you had DM-ed me about the Recipe for making orange-chocolate Tiger chiffon cake. So here goes! Hope you will find this helpful!🤗 

Orange Chocolate Tiger chiffon cake 
4 egg yolks 
20g castor sugar 
40g vegetable oil 
45g orange/mandarin orange juice 
60g cake flour, sifted 
Orange zest (1 orange) 
1 tsp black cocoa powder in 1 tsp hot water (cocoa paste) 
@suncorefoods vermillion annatto for the color (or orange food coloring) 

4 egg whites 
45g castor sugar 
1/4 tsp cream of tartar 

Whisk egg yolks with sugar, followed by oil and juice. Add in sifted flour and whisk till well combined. Divide the batter into 1/3 and 2/3. To 1st part: add cocoa paste. To the 2nd part, add orange zest and vermillion annatto powder and mix well. 

In another mixing bowl, whisk egg whites with sugar till firm peaks. Divide the meringue into 1/3 and 2/3 and fold into each colored batter. Pipe tiger stripes at the base and inside the cake using black batter, interspersed with orange batter. 

*Tip: use a toothpick to drag the tips of your piped black stripes to make tiger stripes. 

Bake in a 7” cake pan at 140C for 1hr, or until a bamboo skewer comes out dry. 

Enjoy baking!! Tag me if you try it! See cross section of the stripes in the cake! ➡️🥰
