How to Make Kabocha Squash Chiffon Cake

If you have prepared the ingredients needed, now time to start cooking. There are 26 steps you must follow to make Kabocha Squash Chiffon Cake in your home by yourself.

    Step 1
  • Separate the egg whites and yolks. Measure the vegetable oil. Sift the powdered ingredients. Knead the ingredients marked with ○.
  • Step 2
  • Whisk the yolks well and add the kabocha, sugar, and honey. Combine well.
  • Step 3
  • Add the vegetable oil and water little by little, while continuously stirring.
  • Step 4
  • Sift the flour into the mixture all at once. Start mixing from the center of the batter and work your way towards the outside. This prevents clumps from forming. (It will be the consistency of loose tempura batter).
  • Step 5
  • Separate the sugar into 3 batches and make the meringue. Beat the egg whites, add 1/3 of the sugar and whip on high.
  • Step 6
  • When smooth foam begins to form, add 1/2 of the remaining sugar and whip at high speed.
  • Step 7
  • When it begins to get fluffy and stiff peak begin to form, add the rest of the sugar. The egg whites will be a bit watery and slide down the edges.
  • Step 8
  • When it becomes glossy and tracks are left behind when zigzagging through the mixture, mix by hand. When stiff peaks form, it's done.
  • Step 9
  • Add 1/3 of the meringue into the bowl from Step 4 and gently mix together with a whisk.
  • Step 10
  • Next, add half of the remaining meringue and this time just mix the top half of the batter. (You don't have to mix all the way to the bottom).
  • Step 11
  • Lastly, leave about 1 ladle amount of meringue and add the rest to the batter. With a whisk, mix the top part of the batter until the stiff peaks of the egg whites are broken down.
  • Step 12
  • Switch to a spatula. Fold over the batter from the bottom and bring to the top, in a folding motion. (about 15-20 times)
  • Step 13
  • Add a ladle amount of batter to the ladle amount of meringue from Step 11. Pour the remaining batter into the cake mold and, grasping the center cylinder, lightly rap against the counter to get rid of air bubbles.
  • Step 14
  • Lightly stir the batter from Step 13 and pour on top of the batter in the cake mold. Use the spatula to smooth the surface of the batter.
  • Step 15
  • This is the smoothed batter in the cake mold. Leaving out the ladle amounts of meringue in Steps 11-14 lowers the chance of it flattening. (If you don't leave the meringue at the end and just mix, it's okay)
  • Step 16
  • Bake at 180°C for 10 minutes. Lower to 160°C for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, cut a few notches into the cake with a knife (optional).
  • Step 17
  • When you push on the cake with a fingertip and it does not deflate or indent, then it's finished! A just baked cake looks like this.
  • Step 18
  • Turn it upside down and place on a cup to cool (the center should cool).
  • Step 19
  • With a knife or bamboo skewer, loosen the edges. Push down on the mold with a knife. If using a bamboo skewer, slowly move it up and down. For the bottom, use a knife etc, and circle it around once.
  • Step 20
  • When you slice it, it looks like this.
  • Step 21
  • This is using a paper mold. Perhaps this was because the kabocha was too watery? Once cooled, the paper tore. It was baked for an extra 15 minutes! Even though I checked on it with a skewer, see the tip in Step 23.
  • Step 22
  • If the kabocha paste is too soggy, decrease the amount of water. This recipe uses the maximum amount of water, so adjust accordingly as in Step 21.
  • Step 23
  • For decorating and using a paper mold, lower the water to 60 ml. If it's too soft, it's easy to mess up.
  • Step 24
  • The previous recipe used 3 eggs, 100 g of kabocha paste and 40 ml of water. It didn't rise very much, but it had a very kabocha flavor.
  • Step 25
  • I decorated the cakes in Step 23 with "Kabocha Mont Blanc Chiffon". If you don't have a Mont Blanc piping piece, pipe with a plastic bag.
  • Step 26
  • You can also make it with frozen kabocha. Defrost in the microwave and then peel the skin.
