Hokkaido Chiffon Cupcakes (北海道牛奶蛋糕)

I remember the first time I baked this Hokkaido chiffon cupcake, it was a bit dry and different from what I ate before, but still my family loved it and finished up all in a short while. 

Give myself a second challenge!!! Hehe..this time a surprisingly result!!! I fell in love with this lovely cupcake when I took my first bite. It is soft and light and the blueberries whipping cream go well together.

Love this great recipe and I will share with my friends and relatives.
