Lemon Chiffon

It's a School holiday today, so I did not make any bentos. I baked a lemon chiffon cake for our tea-break today, I tweaked my orange chiffon cake recipe, because I have a lot of lemons in the fridge. I also tried out my new breadmaker, which I finally bought last night. Finally because I wanted to buy one since rather long ago. :)
Lemon Chiffon for tea. :)

My pan is a little too big for this recipe.

And my first loaf of bread from the breadmaker. Sun was setting when the bread was done, hate the indoor lighting. Going to try using some butterfly pea flower to colour the water before baking the bread tomorrow, hopefully the bread can turn out a nice blue colour and I can use it to make a smurf bento. :)


4 egg yolks
75ml lemon juice
40ml water
85ml canola oil
110g sugar
150g cake flour
1 tsp salt
1tsp baking powder
1 tsp lemon zest

5 egg whites
1/8 tsp cream of tartar
100g sugar

  1. Mix ingredients (A) together to form a smooth batter.
  2. Whisk egg white with cream of tartar for 1 minute, then gradually pour in sugar and whisk till medium stiff peak.
  3. Fold mixture #1 into #2 and pour into a 23cm tube pan.
  4. Bake at 180C for an hour or till cake is cooked.
  5. Overturn cake(still in pan) on a rack and let it cool down.
  6. Remove cake from tube pan with a knife once it has cool down.


  1. The cake looks yummy!! I have also being wanting to invest in a bread machine but still can't decide which one after so many months!!! Which brand did u get? fm ET (Emily)

    1. I got this Aussie brand Breville at expo sale on sun nite. I've actually decided on a kenwd one long time back, but was trying to save my credit card points for it, but the bread maker was ex, so it had been taking forever, lol.
