Ultra Soft and Moist Cocoa Chocolate Chiffon Cake

After sharing my ULTIMATE soft and moist perfect banana chiffon cake at here, many readers asked me if they can modify the recipe into pandan, chocolate, orange, vanilla or many more versions of ultra soft chiffon cakes. And my answer is Errr... NO!!!

Honestly speaking, I don't think that any of these modifications is going to be straightforward and easy! For the fact that ingredients like banana, coconut milk, chocolate, cocoa powder and orange juice are all so different, any addition or substitution of these ingredients can change the fiddly soft chiffon cakes very dramatically. So here, I seek your understanding that developing a variety of ultra soft chiffon cakes recipe needs TIME!!! Lots of time... to do many research and trial-and-error baking. So please please please do not ask if you can modify this cocoa chiffon cake into something because my answer will be NO.

Nevertheless, please be assure that I will derive more interesting ultra soft chiffon cake recipes to share in the near future. To get the latest updates, you can follow me at either my Facebook at here or here or my Instagram @zoebakeforhappykids.

Now, proudly presenting my ultra soft, moist and feathery light chocolate chiffon cake...

Chinese Style Vinegared Cucumber Salad 糖醋蓑衣黄瓜- So tasty and refreshing!

Remember the authentic 红烧肉 (Chinese Soy Braised Pork Belly) that I have learned to cook for my son?

Sorry to say that the vege-loving me wasn't into pork belly when we were feasting at my friend, Yi's house. Instead, I was enjoying the vinegared cucumber salad made by Yi. OMG... Let me tell you. These vinegared cucumbers are so refreshing and tasty!!! They are so addictive that I had finished all of it that was served on Yi's dining table. Shame shame me.

Yi's wife, Mary saw that I love this salad so much that she even packed extra vinegared cucumber for me to bring home. What can I say? Shame shame me... LOL!

Honestly, I was also thinking about my vege-loving aunties when I was feasting on this salad. I kept telling myself... I have to learn to make the cucumbers from Yi for myself and my aunties!!!

And of course, I did.

Otherwise, my son will never stop nagging at me... LOL!

I have made a promise that I will bake Subway-like dark chocolate white chocolate chips cookies for my son because he was upset one day that he couldn't order his chocolate white chocolate chips cookie from a Subway store that runs out of these cookies. What to do??? You see... I'm a mum.
