Just last week, I had a conversation with my friend over the phone talking about cake baking. She asked me whether I have a coffee chiffon cake to share as she is a coffee enthusiast and craving for one. I just realized that I had baked a coffee chiffon cake before (more than 10 years ago) but that was with Hong Kong flour, baking powder and cream of tartar. So this time, I baked this Coffee Kahlua Chiffon Cake and sharing the recipe with you and my friend here with the simple ingredients that are readily available in your pantry. It is again a very simple fluffy, soft and light chiffon cake rich with coffee aroma and flavour not forgetting the kahlua liqueur and this is so perfect to serve with a cup of piping hot coffee. It is alright if you want to omit the liqueur or if you don’t have it on hand you can add coffee paste to enhance the coffee flavour in the cake.
