ROSE TEA CHIFFON CAKE RECIPE


This Rose Tea Chiffon Cake recipe carries a beautiful, subtle flavour of rose tea and is perfect for those without a sweet tooth. I decorated the cake with raspberry cream and topped it with rose buds for a vintage look.

I've been wanting to experiment with baking different kinds of tea-flavoured chiffon cakes. As I recently purchased some rose tea buds, I thought they'd make for an interesting chiffon cake flavour!

If you are wondering, this cake doesn't taste anything like a bandung cake. It carries the unique, floral flavour of rose tea, without being overwhelmingly strong.

I baked this chiffon cake in my new extra tall chiffon cake pan! After seeing a couple of gorgeous tall chiffon cakes baked by others online, my heart was won over and I had to order the cake pan to experiment for myself.

As the cake pan is extra tall, I had to increase the baking time slightly to make sure it is fully cooked throughout. What do you think of the extra tall chiffon cakes? I'm definitely a fan!

  1. Hey Erika! I recently came across your website and everything looks delicious!! Yes, the extra tall chiffon cakes are downright gorgeous! I would totally buy if I had the money LOL. I also had some questions about this recipe.

    1. For the recipe, in case I can't find any caster sugar and cake flour, what can I use to replace it? For caster sugar, would regular sugar be fine or would a finer sugar (like powdered sugar or confectioner sugar) work? For cake flour, is it fine to substitute it with regular flour instead? If I remember correctly, cake flour makes the cake more moist and I guess spongier?

    2. In your directions, you said to pour the tea into 3. By 3, you meant step 3 right? Or would I add it into the egg, sugar, and vegetable mixture?

    3. How long will the cake keep in the fridge? Would it keep for about a week in the refrigerator?

    Thank you for providing us with this wonderful recipe!

    1. Hi Jenny, thank you for your comment! With regards to your enquiries:

      1. Please use caster sugar as this gives the best results for the meringue. You'll need to use fine, granulated sugar, which is caster sugar. Cake flour helps to make the cake fluffier, and I think there are ways to substitute all-purpose flour for cake flour.

      2. Yes, add to the egg, sugar, and oil mixture. Thanks for spotting my typo!

      3. It can last for a few days in the fridge, stored in an airtight container :)

      Hope the cake turns out well for you!
