Cranberry Yogurt Chiffon Cake

71 comments

I want to say thank you to Cherry Potato for sharing this yummy cake recipe. There is no reason why I should say 'no' to this Cranberry Yogurt Chifon Cake. It is so easy to make this moist, soft and tangy chiffon which is tangy and full of lemon flavour and cranberries. I've put the batter into cupcake liners instead of a chiffon pan like my Mini Tofu Chiffon Cake ~ no moulding and no washing of chiffon pan! :D




Cranberry Yogurt Chiffon Cake

      Ingredients: makes 14
      5 Egg yolks
      40g Caster sugar
      65g Canola oil/salad oil
      2 tsp Lemon juice
      130g Natural yogurt
      130g Plain flour (sifted)
      lemon zest from one lemon
      7 Egg whites
      90g Caster sugar
      95g Dried cranberries (cut to small pieces & sprinkle with 1/2 tbsp flour)


 

      Method:
  • In a large bowl, mix egg yolks, sugar and oil well with a hand whisk. Add lemon juice, lemon zest and yogurt into it, mix well again. Pour in the flour and mix well.
  • Whisk egg whites till frothy, gradually add in the sugar in batches, mix well. Continue beating till egg whites are stiff but not dry.
  • Use a hand whisk to mix 1/3 egg whites with mixture.
  • Gently fold in the rest with a rubber spatula till well combined.
  • Lastly gently fold in the cranberries pieces into mixture.
  • Spoon batter into cupcake liners up to 3/4 full evenly and bake at 180C for 15 mins, then lower temperature to 160 for another 20 mins or skewer comes out clean.
  • Invert cake immediately on a wire rack to cool completely before unmoulding.





Enjoy!

  6. good evening ann, i remember learning from your blog of baking a chiffon cake in a cupcake liner, that's really very useful cos sometimes we dont own that so many different sizes of chiffon tin. Looking at your recipe, i must make sure i invert the cupcakes when i made these. I really love the bits of cranberries in this cake!

  16. It looks so yummy, it's a very good idea that you put them into cups. Do you think it's also ok if I substitute cranberries with raisins? and lemon juice with lime juice?any idea? thank you.

  35. Anncoo, these mini chiffon cakes look so delicious. Yes, it's going to my cooking list now, hahaha. Thanks for sharing. I always want to make chiffon cake but don;t have the pan but now has no more excuse. I'm planning to use this recipe to make a mango chiffon cake coz mangoes are in season now. Once I've made them(don;t know when), i'll share with you. Love the beautiful pictures.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I think the best thing with this fuss-free recipe is to be able to enjoy soft delicious cakes without much washing and I really love this idea :D

    ReplyDelete
  37. Happy Thanksgiving! Have a wonderful weekend!

  38. Anncoo, I've just thought of something, actually I've asked the same question b4 to another blogger friend but we can't find the answer so may be you can help.If I use mango instead of the dried fruit,will this going to affect the texture of the cake?I mean the mango is "wet" & I'm just worrying that the batter around the mango wont be able to rise properly.Otherwise,I'll stick to the original recipe.

  41. Looks beautiful and very tempting. I like how this is made without the chiffon cake tin :D Cranberries are easily available here. I should try to make this one day. I have been wanting to make chiffon cake for a really LONG time but haven't done it yet...hmmm. Maybe I should find some time to make it before 2011 comes to an end :D Thanks very much for sharing and hope you have great day. Mary

  52. Ann, I finally got here to comment on your gorgeous chiffon "cupcakes". I loved it on facebook...okay I "liked" it on facebook and I just haven't been on my blog in like a week! This looks amazing with the creamy white goodness and the contrasting red of the cranberries. I love the texture...really makes you want to sink your teeth into it. I love your styling of each photo. You really have any eye for details!

    PS - do you think I could make this? I might have to have you talk me through it! :)

  62. I absolutely love the mini chiffon cake idea. It looks cute, and it can be a great gift as you don't want to make many regular size chiffon cakes... You know I've collected so many of your baked goods and desserts since I found your site and I need to get my act together and start baking. Arhhh... it's something I'm not used to do and I guess I'm too lazy?? And of course I gained weight too much after food blogging which doesn't help if I bake yummy desserts. But I just wanted to say thank you for all these wonderful recipes all the time!

  63. Hi, I was tried bake this cup cake and it really taste nice, moist... But the next day a bit wet on the top of the cake... Is that means I under bake the cake or overbeat the egg white? Thanks

    1. Hi Tiffany,

      I think you need to bake for another 3-5 minutes as oven temperature varies.

      Delete
    2. Hi Ann,
      This is indeed a very tempting one. I had tried baking Chiffon in cup. It rises during the baking process. However, it shriks once removed from the oven. Is there anything wrong during the baking process.

      Your recipe is using 5 yolks and 7 egg whites. What do you do with surplus yolks :-)? TQ..............JJ

      Delete
    3. Did you overturn the cake once after baked? You can try to whisk the egg whites a little longer next time because if the egg whites are too soft, it will definitely shrink.

      I usually keep extra egg whites in the fridge when some recipe only use egg yolks. Of course for chiffon cake, I've to leave the egg whites to room temp.

      Delete
    4. Many thanks Ann, will try again.
