This soft and airy Matcha Chiffon cake topped with lovely white chocolate whipped cream rosettes and rose tea buds is one of sweet elegance. We used pure matcha powder imported directly from Japan for premium quality. The sweet bitter taste of matcha pairs exceptionally well with the white chocolate whipped cream, resulting in a less sweet version of pure white chocolate drip. Presenting all the benefits of Matcha in a delicate sweet surprise perfect for Mother’s day or any occasion.
MATCHA CHIFFON CAKE WITH WHITE CHOCOLATE WHIPPED CREAM
Makes 1 x ~ 17cm cake
3 Egg Yolks (from large eggs)
10g Caster Sugar
12g Matcha Powder
40ml Vegetable Oil
45g Cake Flour (sifted)
1tsp Vanilla extract
4 Egg Whites (from large eggs)
50g Caster Sugar
3/8 tsp Cream of Tartar
Pinch of salt
50g White Chocolate
100ml Whipping Cream
15g Confectionery sugar
1tsp Corn starch
(*double the amount if creaming the entire cake)
Rose Tea buds ~20 pcs (for decoration)
Match Powder a little (for dusting)
Raspberry Powder a little (for dusting) – optional
- Preheat oven to 160 degree Celsius.
- In a mixing bowl, beat egg yolks and sugar (10g) until pale and fluffy
- Add milk, vegetable oil, vanilla extract and mix till well combined.
- Sift in the dry ingredients (matcha powder & flour) and then fold till there are no more lumps. The mixture should form ribbons that disappear back into the batter.
- Meringue: In another bowl, beat egg whites with salt and cream of tartar till bubbly or soft peaks. Add in sugar (50g) in 3 batches then continue to beat on high speed till firm peaks.
- Gently fold 1/3 of the meringue into the wet mixture and mix till well combined. Then fold in the rest of the meringue gently till no more whites are seen.
- Pour the cake batter into a tube tin.
- Remove any trapped large air bubbles by lightly giving the tin a couple of bangs on the table. Or gently run a chopstick through the top of the batter keeping in mind not to knock over the hearts.
- Bake for 45-50 mins till brown or when the sides start to pull away from the tin.
- Invert the tin and let cool.
- Melt white chocolate over a hot water bath. Keep the melted white chocolate warm in the bath.
- Whip whipping cream and sugar till slightly set. Add in corn starch and continue to whip.
- Gradually add in the warm melted white chocolate and whip till set
- Spread a bit of the whipped cream onto the surface of the cake and pipe large rosettes around then top off with rose tea buds and dust some matcha & raspberry powder over. Decorate as you like.
