Chiffon Poison!!

I think I have caught the chiffon poison lately. Been baking a lot of chiffon using the 烫面 method. Think I really like the chiffon made from this method as it is not so dry and more spongy and moist. Still looking around for the perfect recipe that both hubby and me will like cos hubby likes the recipe from Kitchen 70s and I liked the one from Happy Flour. So today, the 3rd recipe I am trying out is from Wens Delight. 

It is supposed to be cream cheese matcha marble chiffon, and since it require to boil and melt the cream cheese and butter before adding the flour, I supposed it is also considered '烫面' method?? Hahaha~ Anyway I added 1tsp of Pandan paste to it as hubby still like chiffon in Pandan flavour. Traditional man huh.. 

I like this recipe, the slight saltish taste from the cream cheese brings out the flavour for the Pandan chiffon. But I unmould straight out of oven and it causes the cake to shrink very fast, resulting in a waistline for the cake. my chiffon also not tall.. sad =( Luckily never affect the texture of the cake. Yummy!!
