Hokkaido Chiffon cupcakes

For me, this chiffon are just like normal chiffon cakes with custard filling, maybe due to the texture is very light and also it is decorated with icing sugar, look similar like snow in Hokkaido Japan..

Hi! Thanks for sharing the recipe! Tried and tasted! Finger licking GOOD!

Is it ok to share where you got these super cute cups?

Yona =)

Sonia (Nasi Lemak Lover) said...

dear all, Thanks for your lovely words.

Yona, i bought the paper cups from BS Bakery shop at Jalan Meru Klang.

Hi my chiffon cupcakes had an overwhelming taste of egg due to the egg whites. Is it supposed to taste like that? How to remove?

Anonymous said...

Hi Sonia, about the custard filling, after mixing the custard powder with the whipped cream, I tasted it using my finger and the texture is somewhat powdery. Is it supposed to be this way? I'm using UHT whipping cream, and Bird's custard powder, hope that this is not the problem?

Sonia (Nasi Lemak Lover) said...

anonymous, it taste ok for me but not overwhelming of egg white, maybe you not use to eat a chiffon like that. As for the powdery texture, with 1tsp of custard powder, it should not taste this way, did you add more custard powder? By the way, may i know your name please..

Mel said...

Hi Sonia, thanks for sharing this recipe. My cup chiffon shrink and pull away from the paper cup and seem abit lobe sided. Have I miss out something? Would appreciate you advise ^^. TIA

i have tried to do this cupcake from ur recipe but it is true tht u only use 25g self raising flour? because the mixture is tooooo liquidy..
-ZARA

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Zara, frankly, i have so long did not try this recipe. 25g flour should be correct because i halved the recipe, you may refer to original recipe to double check. Anyway, i am suggestng you to try my new Hokkaido cupcake recipe, check it out.

GoldyFish said...

Hi Sonia,

I;ve tried yr recipe its a success for a first attempt! i love the taste.. however,after i decorate with icing sugar and i fridge it, it "dissappear"...hee is tat the case for you too?

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

GoldYfish, do you mean icing sugar disappeared after fridge , yes, it will melt after long hours.

Anonymous said...

Hi Sonia,

May I know the amount of baking powder required? Thanks..

Mei

angela lin said...

Hihi! thanks to your recipe for the chiffon cake, my chiffon cake rises! the 1st attempt was sad, I see from another recipe, they did not even rise and looks like kueh bo lu though they still taste as nice haha :D

Do you mind if I use your pics for the hokkaido chiffon cake for my online shop that sells baking supplies? I will credit your blog on my website too! Here is my website: http://www.facebook.com/TheBakingWardrobe

Please let me know if I can use your pics thanks!

Hui Hoon said...

hi! this is the 2nd time I wrote this comment. My 1st seems to disappear. I would like to confirm that the egg white beating. Is it till soft peak enough? From what I know, to bake chiffon cake, we need to beat it till stiff. Thx.

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Hui Hoon, since this cake using cupcake liners, beat till soft peak is enough. Otherwise you may try beat till close to stiff .

Hui Hoon said...

hi! its me again hui hoon.
i just notice that you have 2 post on this hokkaido chiffon cake. One using self raising flour and one using cake flour. besides that you also uses different whipping cream for the filling. I notice that the qty of ingredients differs. Is it due to the cake flour and the self raising flour? Currently i only have self raising flour on hand. So i might be following the recipe using the self raising flour. But I am curious on the differences. Can you further elaborate? Thanks!

Hui Hoon said...

Hi Sonia! I just bake my 1st Hokkaido chiffon cupcakes using your recipe with self raising flour. I beat the egg white till near stiff and the cake turns out to be very soft n fluffy! Thanks a lot for the wonderful recipe! However my whipping cream fails as I think I have over whipper my emborg whipping cream. Fat and liquid were separated and butter was born. Any tips on how to prepare the whip cream filling?

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Hui Hoon, Great to know you have success on your 1st bake of Hokkaido chiffon cupcakes. As i know Emborg whipping cream is dairy whipping cream, but the cream in this recipe i use was non-dairy cream..Anyway, when you beat dairy whipping cream, place the bowl over another big bowl that filled with ice water, and beat till cream become stiff but do not over beat it. If you overbeat, it will separated, and become buttermilk and butter..

Hui Hoon said...

Hi soni! It me again Hui Hoon. So far I bake this Hokkaido cupcake following your recipe 3 times and the result is perfect every time. However I am thinking to double or even triple the qty as each time the cake finish so fast. ;) do you know how long the cake batter can sit before baking, as I am thinking to make triple of the rcp but I only have a small oven. Thx!

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Hui Hoon, I guess it is ok to double up but not triple up. I am afraid the batter will deflate if keep for too long . I never try with double, maybe you try out and let me know.

Hui Hoon said...

Hi Sonia!
FYI few days ago, I quadrupled your recipe, and bake, as I wanted to cook 2 trays at one. However the cake comes out to be uncooked in the middle (after 20 minutes, 180 degree Celsius). After that I turn off the top fire and cook again for another 10 minutes but then the bottom was burnt. I wonder why it becomes like that.
Today, using the same quad recipe I bake again using another oven, and today I use 160 degree for 20 minutes. I tested using bamboo chopstick, and it comes out clean. After that I found that the cake is not cook in the middle. Then I bake again for another 15 minutes for it to cook.
Any idea why my oven need to bake this cupcake for so long?

Anonymous said...

I follow your self raising flour recipes for hakkaido cupcakes, why the minute I took them out from oven it deflate, can tell me where it go wrong? Thanks From elynho64@hotmail

Jessie Tan Yoke Moi said...

I make it 3 times for my son. he love so much....finished all the next day..Thx for sharing the recipe
