CREAM CHEESE CHIFFON CAKE


Yesterday while I was browsing all my favorite blogger, I came across to Beachlover blog with this interesting chiffon cake recipe with cream cheese. I immediately dotted down all the ingredients and methods for today's baking.

These few days it have been very cold in Atlanta, Georgia and I am having the mood of baking to make my house warm. This chiffon cake is so soft and fluffy. It's tastes almost the same like Japanese Cheesecake and I totally love it because it's not so sweet and it goes well with any kind of hot or cold drinks.


INGREDIENTS :

(A)
1/2 cup milk
4 oz cream cheese
3 tbsp butter

(B)
1 cup cake flour
6 large egg yolks
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

(C)
6 large egg whites
1 cup fine granulated sugar
1/2 tsp cream tartar



METHODS :

1. Combine all ingredients (A) in a double-boiler, cook until thicken and incorporated. Then set aside to cool down.

2. Preheat oven at 325 F.

3. Sieve all the dry ingredients (B) in a mixing bowl and stir it with a spatula until well combined. Then add in the eggs and the mixture of the ingredients (A), with a hand mixture (with whisk attachment), whisk until well incorporated and the mixture smooth.

4. In another mixing bowl, beat ingredients (C) in high speed until stiff peak and glossy. Then fold in the egg whites mixture to the cake batter in 3 parts.



5. Pour the cake mixture into ungreased 10" tube cake pan and bake for 55-60 minutes.

6. Invert the cake and let it cool completely in the pan. When it's cool, loosen the edges of the pan with a sharp knife and remove the cake gently. Cut into desired size and served.
