Chocolate Chiffon-Sponge cupcakes

No idea what I am talking about? You should just try this recipe! It was something that came by pure luck yet it has the texture and taste that I really like (so do Prince Charming!)

If you are looking for a cake that has a texture in between Chiffon and Sponge, this will be the right one for you :) Perfect texture for a cupcake! Not greasy - Light and spongy and fluffy :)

To make this:

95g of cake flour
75g egg yolks
70g brown sugar
60ml Oil
10g Cocoa powder (I used bittersweet kind)
4 tbsp water 
3 tbsp fresh milk

130g egg whites
80g brown sugar

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine yolks, sugar, oil. Add in flour, water, milk and cocoa powder. Mix well. Ensure that the batter is not lumpy to avoid affecting the texture. If the batter appears to be too thick, you can add in more milk to get a slightly runny mixture (not too runny - Mixture should form a ribbon trail)
  2. Preheat oven to 170°C
  3. In a separate bowl, beat egg whites till foamy then add in sugar gradually till peaks achieved. Note: Do not overheat egg whites. This might causes collapse of the cake
  4. Add half of the egg white mixture (meringue) into the yolk-flour mixture. Fold well. Add in the remaining egg white mixture into the cake batter. Ensure that you fold well.
  5. Pour your ready batter into little cupcake liners and bake for 35 mins
