Clementine Poppy Seed Chiffon Cake













Although i am back but my brain is still on holiday and every function is on vacation mode. Can't continue to point what you want to eat, have to bake for dessert. Have some dried out clementines and made this chiffon which turned out very well. Mind is still slow when it comes to firguring out why it turned out so good.

Ingredients:
(A)
1 3/4 cups Self Rising Flour
1/8 tsp of salt
(B)
1/2 cup of sugar
3/4 cup Clementine juice(orange juice will do)
2 tbsp lime juice
1/4 cup poppy seeds
zest of 1 orange
1/4 cup of vegetable oil
6 egg yolks
(C)
3/4 cup of sugar
6 egg whites
1 tsp of cream of tartar

Method:

Pre-heat oven to 325 degree F.
Sieve (A) ingredient in a mixing bowl until well combined.
Mix ingredient (B) following the list, adding the egg yolks last, until well blended and then add in ingredient (A) and mix until smooth. Set it aside.
Whisk ingredient (C) in mixer on low speed until foamy, then add in the cream of tartar and increase speed to medium high. Continue to whisk until it thickens, then slowly add in the sugar. Whisk until thick and shinny. It should be soft but stiff and thick.
Fold 1/3 of the egg whites into the egg yolks mixture and mix well.
When well mixed, pour in the rest of the whisked eggwhites and fold in gently, from the center, to the bottom and fold mixture, turning mixing bowl as you go. Fold until well combined.
Pour batter into ungreased 10" tube pan and bake for 45 - 50 minutes or use a bamboo skewer to test the cake for doneness, it should come out clean.
Invert cake, let the center tube rest on a stainless funnel or a steady bottle and let it cool complete in the pan. When cooled, loosen the edge and bottom of the pan by running a flat cake spatula/knife and remove cake.
