Banana Chiffon Cake

Banana Chiffon Cake

This is twice as delicious with banana whipped cream. This chiffon cake is so popular with the friends of my kids.

Ingredients: 18cm chiffon mold

Egg yolk
Egg white
Cake flour
100 g
Granulated sugar
90 g
Medium banana
80 g
Lemon juice
10 g
Banana liquor (milk)
10 g
Vegetable oil
15 g


1. Blend 80 g of banana, lemon juice, and banana liquor (or milk). We will use 90 g of the mixture.
2. Sift the cake flour. Preheat the oven to 170°C.
3. Separate the egg yolks and whites. Add half of the granulated sugar little by little while whipping the egg whites, and make a meringue with stiff peaks. Keep it in the refrigerator.
4. Add the rest of the granulated sugar into the bowl of egg yolks, and whip until pale and fluffy. Add the banana syrup from step 1 and vegetable oil. Mix well.
5. Then sift in the flour mixture from step 2 into the bowl, and mix well.
6. Add 1/3 of the meringue from step 3 to the bowl from step 5 and fold gently. Add in another half of the meringue and fold.
7. Lastly, add the batter into the bowl of the meringue, and fold gently to avoid breaking the air bubbles. Fold gently from the bottom like using a knife to cut the meringue.
8. Pour the batter into a chiffon mold. Hold the middle of the mold and bang lightly on the table to let the air bubbles out.
9. Put it in the oven. Bake at 170°C for about 20 minutes. Make 4~5 incisions with a bread knife in the middle of baking process (optional).
10. Lower the oven temperature to 160°C and bake for 10 more minutes (you could also keep it at 170°C). Midway through baking, stick in a skewer. Take the cake out of the oven if the skewer comes out clean.
11. Cool the cake upside down on a cup. The cake will fall apart if you try to remove from the mold while hot.
12. When the cake is cooled, run the side of the mold with palette knife. Use skewers for the middle part. Remove from the mold upside down onto a plate.
13. Garnish, and it's ready to eat. It's delicious to pour melted chocolate over the whipped cream and chiffon cake.
14. Banana whipped cream: Mash a small banana with a small amount of lemon juice, and mix with sweetened whipped cream.
