Banana Chiffon Cake


80 g     all-purpose flour
½ tsp   baking powder

4          egg yolks
10 g     sugar
A pinch of salt
40 ml   water
30 ml   vegetable oil
90 g     bananas, mashed (I used about 2 small bananas)

4          egg whites
40 g     sugar
¼ tsp   cream of tartar


1. Beat egg yolks, sugar, and salt until light. Add water, oil, and mashed bananas. Mix well.

2. Add in flour and baking powder. Mix until well incorporated. Set aside.

3. In another clean bowl, whisk the egg whites until foamy then add cream of tartar. Whisk until soft peak then gradually add in sugar. Whisk until stiff peak.

4. Using a rubber spatula, fold in 1/3 of the whites into the banana batter until well incorporated. Gently fold in the rest of the egg whites by half.

5. Pour the batter into the chiffon mold. Tap the mold lightly to get rid of any trapped air bubbles in the batter.

6. Baked in preheated oven at 170 C degree for 45 – 50 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean.

7. Remove from the oven and invert the mold immediately. Let cool completely before unmolding.

1.   I reduced the sugar from my usual 50g because of the sweetness from the bananas.
2.   Would be best if you use over-riped bananas, the cake will be more flavorful.
3.   Roughly mashed the bananas or add in some small chunks for bananas for texture, if you prefer.

Jet said...

Jess, I agree! The banana is too little. I am planning to double it the next time I make it. The banana flavor wasn't strong enough for me. Hehe.

Thank you, Jess. We can never resist banana flavored cakes. =D

Thank for dropping by, Honey Bee. It is soft and fluffy just lacking in flavor. I still remember your banana chiffons which looks absolutely delicious and the chunks of banana just makes it even better.

Thank you Honey Boy. =D
