Japanese Dark Pearl Chocolate Chiffon Cake

Japanese Dark Pearl Chocolate Chiffon Cake

After seeing numerous of my blogging friends baking this chiffon cake for the past few months, i am now into action to bake one. Although chocolate chiffon is quite common, you know i have not tasted one before as far as i can remember. The most type i have eaten are orange chiffon and pandan chiffon which i think are the popular ones. I would also like to try out coffee because i have not eaten one too...which i also think it's a nice flavour.

I read from Ellena's blog that this recipe of dark pearl chocolate chiffon has long existed many years ago from Aunty Yochana.  I am not aware of this chiffon until only recently when some of you baked it and i also agree with what has been said about the cake, very chocolatey and nice. I dont know how if it's being compared to a normal chocolate chiffon or a double chocolate chiffon but i find this chiffon really nice. Hope those who have not tried it will give it a try too in the future.

i dont know why there is a thin chocolate skin surrounding the cake...look at the first picture too..perhaps this could be the dark pearls that the cake is wearing...heheheh..

I am baking along with Joyce and Zoe and Chiffon cakes is our Bake along theme starting today up till 19July2014. Are all welcomed to join us , please do not link sponge cakes or angel cakes ya! Bye!
