Recipe • Strawberry Chiffon Cake


This Strawberry Chiffon Cake has always been my “go to” chiffon cake recipe whenever I feel like baking to gift my friends and family. Just look at the pastel peachy colour & soft texture… 😍

I always use Canola oil for chiffon baking
as I feel it gives the cake an extra lighter texture

It’s quite straight forward and especially easy for those of you who have experience in chiffon cake baking. Ok now, let’s bake!
