Hokkaido Chiffon



Hokkaido, my favourite place of all
with purely white snow covering the land in the winter
the snows are as soft as cotton
the view is amazingly pretty
it was the fall in love at first sight.



I miss my days in Hokkaido,
Danced in the snow,
Fooled around with the snowball fight
and i even had my "ice kacang" with the ice 'freshly' from the sky.


When I came across this recipe, it brought me clear flash back on my trip.


Hokkaido Chiffon - soft and fluffy chiffon. You will never forget its texture and taste; with lil' creamy custard filling in it.


Hokkaido Chiffon cuppies
recipe adapted from 周老师的美食教室
(make 15)

100g egg yolks
1/4 tsp of salt
40g sunflower seed oil
40g milk
vanilla essence
50g low protein flour
1/4 tsp of baking powder

210g egg whites
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
105g castor sugar

custard cream filling:
120g non dairy whipping cream
25g custard powder
75g cold milk

Preheat the oven at 170 degree.
Mix egg yolk with salt. Add in oil and milk and mix well.
Sieve flour and baking powder into the egg yolk mixture. Add in vanilla essence as well.
Whisk egg whites with cream of tartar until foamy and then ad in sugar and whisk until stiff.
Fold in half of the egg whites into the mixture and mix well. Then add in the other half and mix them evenly.
Fill the mixture into the cups
and Bake at 170 degree for 15 minutes. Leave cool.
Whip up the whipping cream.
Mix custard with cold milk and add into the whipped cream. Mix well.
Pump the custard cream into the chiffon.

You can either chill before serving or have it straight after filling in the cream :)

I use 4 AA size eggs for this recipe.
I omitted the vanilla essence from this recipe as i dislike the taste of vanilla.
I reduced the sugar to 85 grams as the whipping cream I used is sweetened



and creamy :)

you will love it

lechua said...

does the hokkaido chiffon originate from hokkaido... i want to have one! and yes snow is lovely... esp when we never get to experience it here.

WendyinKK said...

I'm bookmarking this, and turning this into a "durian" flavoured one.

good question, i am not really sure if this recipe is truly and originate from hokkaido. i just browse thru and picked this up from a taiwanese blog. and to my surprise, the bakeries in taiwan are selling this one like piece of hot cake!

hmm, i dislike durian, really unable to try a hand on that. aiksss...

have a try :) and do hope you will love it.

Hi Ai wei, I got here from sonia's blog. Very pretty chiffon cake. Hope to try this out!

ai wei said...

small small baker,
hello, do hope you love this recipe and enjoy baking :)

iceamericanos said...

hi ai wei,

I was wondering when u combine the custard powder and milk and add into the whipped cream, does the cream turns watery? If yes, do we continue whipping it to get the cream texture or just leave it and pump into the cake?

ai wei said...

hie, do you whip up the cream?
when the mixture of custard and milk added into the whipped up cream, it would stay at the creamy way. and it won't turn watery.

and you must use non dairy whipping cream

it should be in creamy texture when you are pumping the cream into the cake :)

vivienne said...

Hi ai wei, thanks for the delicious recipe... but my icing sugar frosting melted in the fridge and the cupcake surface turned moist & sticky, how to prevent this.. thank you

ai wei said...

hi, you used icing sugar frosting ? but this recipe is called for custard cream filling where non dairy cream is used in it

Anonymous said...

hi can i steam this recipe instead bake it in oven.i dont have oven

Elajr said...

EiHi, I'm new to your blog. The cupcakes look awesome! May I know if the flour amount is a typo I was just wondering if that little amount of flour will make 15 cupcakes. And how's the end result, isn't it sweet. I notice that there's no sugar in the cake ingredients. Sorry for asking too much. Thank you.

ai wei said...

Hi Anonymous,
i guess this is made to bake instead of steam, as the steam may not make the fluff up that high?! well, this is juz my guess as i have not tried it out before. you can always give a try ^^

ai wei said...

Hi Elajr,

Dearie, it's not a typo as it mainly depends on the egg white for the fluff up effect ^^

besides that, if you noticed, there are 105g of castor sugar in the egg white batter. when everything mix up, there are sugar in the cake :)
besides that, the custard maybe sweeten too! so when all the sugar ingredients total up, it will be sweet, but not overly sweet :)

hope this helps, happy baking
