The texture of this gluten free yummy Rice Flour Chiffon Cake (with some corn flour) is no different from all the other chiffon cake recipes that I’d shared with you before on my blog. It is airy, light with soft tender crumb and is suitable for those who are allergic to wheat flour. To enhance the look and taste of this Rice Flour Chiffon cake, I added Valrhona cocoa powder to make a marbling effect by using a chopstick to swirl the plain and cocoa batters together. The cake turned out perfect with a sweet cocoa aroma. So perfect for our tea break!
