Japanese Dark Pearl Chocolate Chiffon Cake
Serves 10
  1. 5 egg yolks, at room temperature
  2. 60g vegetable oil
  3. 100g whole milk, at room temperature
  4. 130g dark chocolate, broken into pieces 
  5. 55g cake flour
  6. 25g cocoa powder 
  7. 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  8. 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  9. 5 egg whites, at room temperature
  10. 80g caster sugar
  11. 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  1. Before you start, make sure that all the ingredients are at room temperature.
  2. Melt the chocolate in a heat proof bowl over a ban marie. Set this aside to cool a little.
  3. In the bowl of a mixer, beat together the egg yolks and oil.
  4. Followed by the milk. Then the melted chocolate.
  5. Mix until blended. Add the sifted flour/ cocoa powder/ baking soda and baking powder. Mix to combine, scrapping the sides of the bowl occasionally. Set this aside.
  6. In a clean mixing bowl, whisk the egg whites until foamy. Add the cream of tartar.
  7. Gradually add the sugar, whisking continuously, until stiff peaks.
  8. Add 1/3 of the egg whites into the egg yolk mixture. Mix to combine. There is no need to be gentle at this stage.
  9. Add the remaining egg whites in 2 batches, and gently fold the whites into the batter until no streaks remain.
  10. Pour into an UNGREASED 21-23cm chiffon pan and lift the pan to about 10cm from the table top. Drop the pan. This removes the larger air bubbles. Repeat this a couple of times.
  11. Bake at 180°C for 1 hour. You may need to adjust the baking time, depending on your oven. If the top gets too brown or cracks too much, cover with a piece of aluminium foil – just open the open, place the foil over the cake and close the oven door as quickly as you can.
  12. Invert the cake pan until it cools completely before removing from the pan.
