This Meat Floss Chiffon Cake is a popular savoury and sweet cake that has been shared by many great bakers in the blogosphere. Basically it is a light and soft chiffon cake with meat floss (pork or chicken) layered in between and topped with a spread of mayonnaise and a sprinkling of meat floss with some toasted sesame seeds. It’s very easy and quick to bake this delicious cake either in a round, square or tube pan. Besides following my recipe, you can also use your own favourite chiffon cake recipe and just add meat floss in between.
