Black Treacle Chiffon Cake

I supposed life is getting exciting each day. I just found an old friend on facebook today. It was such a great joy ! And then awhile later, I found a few more of them..... my secondary school classmates. haha..... The first reaction when I saw their latest picture I was like.... huh.... Is it really them ?? A kinda of surprise how's everyone has changed after 28 years but still be able to recognize some of them. Life is just so short, isn't it ! And so is this black treacle chiffon cake, its going to end up into everyone stomach soon after this. Black treacle is called as gula hangus in Malay, which is widely used in many local kuih-muih and as well as in baking. I think you can easily get this kind of black treacle sauce at those specialty cake house anytime anywhere now. This store bought black treacle sauce is as good as those homemade ones indeed and its hassle free. Its not expensive at all. I am highly recommended it.

So, here's what I did.
Ingredients :
(A)
5 egg whites
3 TB  sugar
1/4 tspn  cream of tartar / 1/2 tspn  cornflour

(B)
5 egg yolks
2 TB  sugar
50ml  milk
3 TB  black treacle sauce
90gm   all purpose flour
60ml   corn oil / melted butter

Method :
(1) whisk egg white till foamy then add in cream of tartar & sugar one tablespoon at a time till everything well combined or till egg white became stiff.
(2) next, beat egg yolk & sugar till pale & fluffy then add in milk & black treacle and continue beating till everything well corporate.
(3) now, fold in flour bit by bit till well combined and then follow adding in the oil.
(4) once its ready, transfer batter to a 7" chiffon cake tray coated with flour (I'm using a 8" tray which is too big for it). Remember, do not brush your chiffon cake tray with butter or cooking oil. NEVER !
(5) finally, bake at preheated oven 170'C for about 20-25 minutes or till tester came out clean.
(6) place the cake tray upside down when done and only discharge the cake when its cool.

As expected, the cake is so aromatic and the texture is fabulous as well. I have to make good use of those sauce. Hope you guys will love it too. Have a great week ahead guys !
