Having a cake sitting on a counter or table seem so special, it’s easy just to buy cake from a bakeshop but if you have the time why not make this really simple cake. I used a recipe from Wesson oil ( but I used coconut lauric oil) for the chiffon cake; the whole cake though is inspired by this cake. I haven’t tasted that cake but I’ve doubt it’s as good as it looks. My version is not as gorgeous but it is really delicious, the cheese is a real compliment to the cream frosting. I used half cheddar and quickmelt cheeses for the topping, it’s a real treat.. you should try it! :)
You can use this cake to make just about anything, I have used this for a mocha layer cake, strawberry cream cake and this cake..cheesy cream cake. Just use any frosting or filling that you like and you can create a special cake for your loved ones!
mix dry ingredients in a bowl, add half of the milk and oil
mix well for about a minute..
..then add egg yolks and the remaining milk
beat egg whites in a separate bowl until stiff and gently fold in the batter
pour into prepared pan and bake
..and turn it into this cake if you like..just whip a chilled cream and use it to fill and frost the cake then top with grated cheddar cheese.
say cheese!! :)
