Chiffon Queen

Black Sesame Chiffon Cake
When I was taking my baking course, I was known as the "Chiffon Queen". This was firstly because my chiffon cakes always turned out "perfectly chiffon" - light and fluffy - no matter how liquid it looked compared to my coursemates'. Secondly, because I was constantly trying to "smuggle" ingredients different from the regular ones we were instructed to make.
I made this Black sesame chiffon cake with a mix of black & white sesame seeds and sesame oil. The taste is delightful, especially if you like the seeds. It's got some "bite" to it too, as I do not blend the seeds into paste, but rather have them coarsely chopped.
Anyways, in case you're wondering, I do have the regular flavoured chiffon cakes:-
1. Plain vanilla
2. Orange - using fresh orange juice & zest!
3. Pandan - using flavour squeezed from the pandan leaves!
4. Lemon - using fresh lemon juice & zest!

And also "interesting" new flavours such as:-
5. Sesame seeds -black & white
6. Black glutonious rice - tastes like the pudding!
7. Lavander - real dried flowers!
8. Earl Grey tea
9. Chocolate
10 Coffee - espresso

I'm interested to know new flavours that any of you may be dying to have me try out. Just drop me a note on my tagboard or post a comment! All good and appreciated!
