Rose Chiffon
Sunday, 12 February 2012 | posted by Simply bakes

Woah, its been a while hasn't it! Sorry, i haven't had the time or energy to blog especially since school reopened. It is really stressful as a year 4 this year and i am still struggling to keep my grades and homework in place. :( I have actually baked quite abit for Chinese New Year but din't bother the take the pictures, partly because i couldn't take nice pictures and mostly because i was just too lazy and din't find the point in doing so. 

Nevertheless, i decided to try blogging once again and so here i am:) Today, i made a rose chiffon cake. I have been wanting to make a chiffon cake for ages but never got the courage to try baking it. After reading a few blogs on chiffon cakes, i was really inspired and threw all my worries to the back of my head haha. It was my first attempt at making a chiffon cake so sad to say, this cake does not have a beautifully browned out crust which makes it look kind of patchy. :( Next time, i will put the cake in 1 or 2 minutes longer. However, i still enjoyed the process extremely especially whipping the egg whites till they are glossy smooth.:D 

The cake, i got to say is very soft, moist, light and fluffy. I was extremely pleased with the texture:) However taste-wise, i couldn't taste the rose flavour at all and my sister said it was abit 'eggy'. The recipe called for rose water and rose essence. What i did was to soak dried roses in hot water for the rose water and added in crushed roses in place of the rose essence. Oh, what was i thinking? Of course i wouldn't be able to taste the rose! Sigh...

The cake rose really well in the oven, thus i got a nice height out of the cake:) Thank goodness i finally conquered my fear of whipping egg whites and i would definitely try baking chiffon cakes again!
