Servings 6 inch


  • 6" Chiffon Cake Pan
  • Silicone Spatula
  • Oven
  • Sieve
  • Hand Mixer


Yolk Batter

  • 3 egg yolks
  • 25 g vegetable oil
  • 45 mL milk
  • 12 g sugar
  • 45 g all-purpose flour
  • 5 g corn starch
  • 1 g butterfly pea flower powder


  • 3 egg whites
  • 30 g sugar

Blueberry Whipped Cream

  • 250 mL whipping cream
  • 20 g sugar
  • 50 g cream cheese softened
  • 20 g blueberry jam


To prepare Chiffon Cake Batter:

  • Preheat the oven to 160 °C or 320 °F.
  • Separate egg yolks and egg whites into two separate bowls. Put the egg whites in the fridge. (see tip #1)
  • Sift all-purpose flour, butterfly pea flower powder, and corn starch. (see tip #2)
  • Add sugar (12g) into the egg yolks. Whisk until sugar is dissolved and the batter becomes yellowish-white. (see tip #3) Whisk in oil.
  • Sift the flour, black sesame powder, and corn starch again. Slowly add the dry ingredients interchangeably with milk into the yolk batter. Use a spatula and mix until everything is combined with no lumps. Do not over-mix it. Set aside. (see tip #4)
  • Bring out the egg white from the fridge. Whisk the egg whites at low speed, allowing small stabilizing bubbles to form. Add in the sugar (30g) gradually and whisk at medium-low speed. After you add the last part of sugar, turn to high speed until stiff peak forms. (see tip #5)
  • Put 1/3 of the meringue into the yolk batter. Gently mix them until combine. (see tip #6)
  • Gently mix the batter with the remaining yolk batter, until combine.
  • Pour the batter into the mold (see tip #7 & 8). Tap the pan lightly to get rid of any trapped air bubbles in the batter. (see tip #9)
  • Bake for 45 minutes at 160 °C.
  • Once it is baked, bring the cake out immediately and tap the cake pan lightly a few times to release the hot air. Turn the cake pan upside down on a cooling tray for at least 45 minutes. Do not remove the cake from the cake pan at this point. (see tip #10)
  • After 45 minutes, you can remove the cake from the pan. Serve with the blueberry whipped cream.

To prepare Blueberry Whipped Cream:

  • Whisk softened cream cheese and sugar until creamy.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk the whipping cream until it starts to thicken. Add cream cheese and blueberry jam. Continue to whisk in medium-high speed, until a medium peak is formed. It is best for frosting the cake. Continue to beat to stiff peak is best for piping decorations.
