Hokkaido Chiffon cupcakes!! from what I've heard... there is no such thing as Hokkaido Chiffon cupcakes in Hokkaido! :(

As some bloggers pointed out; it's the milk.
the milk from Hokkaido was used in the recipe for this fluffy soft chiffon cupcake got its name from... since I used Devondale milk... perhaps I should call it Devondale chiffon cupcakes? ;P

These chiffon cupcakes have been on my 'hit' list for a long... long time, but then again there are many things on my list :O

When I decided that its time  ... someone put up her hand, she wanted to bake!
Well... how could I say NO to her when she shows some interest in the kitchen and not her K-dramas :/

With printed recipe in hand... put forward subtly that she required no help except for the oven, so she began.
All was good...
...until the cakes came out from the oven...
as we watched the cupcakes slowly shrink and sink!!!

Nevertheless... the cupcakes may lack in appearance but tastewise,  they were still good :)

'Mom... I guessed you are NOT going to take some photos!'
Oh Boy!!! that was one tough question to answer :(

Second attempt...
... this time, it was 'folding' the 2 batters rather than 'mixing well'

there were still some shrinkages around the edges but it did not deflate like a car having a puncture ;P talking about puncture ... I did have a car puncture today :( ...


  1. A delicious and refined treat! Perfect with a cup of tea.



  2. I think these cuppies look real lovely! Yeah....when I tried mine previously, it shrunk too. Do you know there's another recipe for Hokkaido cupcakes that cooked up the batter?

    1. Thank you Mel :D

      Cooked up batter? interesting you have the link ;P

  3. They are so very soft and light! Save me one please, Lisa.

  4. Hi, I have one doubt. ..we have to add 1/3 of meringue in batter A? Then what we r suppose to do with the remaining meringue?

    1. Hi
      If you read the sentence in its entirety... after the word meringue, I wrote 'at a time', which means 'you add 1/3 of meringue, 3 times'

  5. Oh I oversight that ;) thanks dear for the reply :)

  6. Nommm... Light and fluffy chiffon cake! Love the custard idea! Pinned! :)
