Soft and moist. The kids loves it. Jiejie was telling me, she wanna bring it to school tml….
Me : ” hello, school holiday now, which school or u going???”
She :  Oh nvm.. I eat at home den.

Imo, it’s slightly sweet for me. SO next time I might reduced the sugar.

Verdict: 2/12/15
Chiffon cake was still soft and moist…
Its taste better after keeping in the fridge.. can eat immediately after taking out. No need to wait for it to soften.

Bcoz it had coconut milk, I scared it will turn sour due to our weather.
