Chiffon Cake is one of the most requested cake in my family. Even our friends always ask me to bake Chiffon Cake when I pay them a visit. It’s simple, light as air and not to sweet. It has definitely become our classic coffee cake for tea time or how you would call it over here in Germany “Kaffekränzchen”.
The best part of this cake is that you can bake them in a lot of variations. You could make a classic Marble Chiffon Cake by just adding cocoa powder to the mixture or you can even add dry fruits to make it like some kind of Christmas fruit cake.
I decided to try adding Pandan essence to make this simple Chiffon Cake a little bit more interesting. I love that the Pandan flavor is not overwhelming. You can just taste a hint of the Pandan in this Pandan Marble Chiffon Cake. And I just love the color of it! You could also add red food coloring to make it a Christmas Chiffon Cake.
My son NJ calls it the “Zebra Grinch Cake”. 🙂
