Blueberry Oreo Chiffon Cake

Yippee! My first Chiffon Cake. Some people said you can't call yourself a baker unless you've baked a Chiffon Cake..Hmm..really? It seem tricky, but they aren't that bad. I seriously enjoyed the whole process of making this cake.
The cake is so soft and moist. The sweetness level is just perfect, and the blueberry taste is quite prominent. I ate few slices in one sitting and my oh my, it was so gooooood. The cake is known for its lower cholesterol and fat content, so it make me feel less guilty eating it. 
As for the guys, Adam hates blueberry, so he only had one small piece of it (He used to love berries..sigh). Husband, on the other hand, had no idea why am I so happy over a piece of fluffy cake :P He he Let him be. He won't understand the art of making a chiffon cake. He just do what he's best at, which is eating and splurging me with kitchen toys :P

The recipe is from Bisous A Toi. Thanks K Rima for sharing this recipe :) 
Oppss..too much sugar! 
Btw, today is the first day of Rejab. So "Slamat Berpuasa" to those who're fasting today. :)

  3. The color of this cake is so eye catching and it looks perfectly moist-yum! The flavor alone is something your rarely find in a chiffon cake, so I find this very creative and unique.  Well done.

  4. RC,
    I think that 'some people' are right. Saya baca segala pantang larang untuk buat chiffon cake ni je, terus takut nak buat. Haha! Sama macam macs.

    Chiffon cake ni buleh dibubuh fillings macam sponge cake tak ek?

    Your photos love lovely, as always.

  10. Aida, 

    I rasa you boleh buat punya.. pukul je itu egg whites sapai tak jatuh he he 

    Boleh bubuh filling sbb it kindda bland to some ppl.. I pun ada plan nak buh filling next time I try another recipe.. 

    My photos tak cun sgt lah hari ni.. tension sbb pakai camera baru..seme benda tak familiar lagi hukhukk..
