Red Yeast Marble Chiffon Cake (紅麴大理石戚风蛋糕)


I'm very upset because I failed to create the nice marble effect as I wish. My method to marble this cake is put all the plain batter into the baking pan first and follow by the red yeast batter, then I use a chopstick to swirl the mixture, is this correct??? Maybe I should refer to this  "How to Marble Cake" for the correct technique.

Afterall this is a soft, moist and delicious chiffon cake. This recipe adapted from 孟老师 cookbook or you may refer to Sonia aka Nasi Lemak Lover's blog for the recipe as well. She made very beautiful Red Yeast marble effect.
Happy Baking!!!

  2. Oooo....beautiful chiffon cake. The red effect made this cake beautiful (you should make the marble swirl using a spoon or fork so it looks more nicer). I never had tasted red yeast before.

  8. Esther, that is a lovely chiffon! I can see that it is so soft and fluffy. I think for more effective marbling (not that I am good at it) it would be better to alternate dollops of both batter and then gently swirl with your chopstick or knife. I have not tried red yeast before and I wonder how it is like.

    1. Hi phong Hong, I'm so blessed to have you and Mel to teach me the marbling technique. I believe your method will definitely works, see the YouTube also use this alternate dollops method :) thank you
      Actually red yeast powder don't have any flavor or taste, I use it for color only.

  12. Hi Esther, your chiffon texture is very nice, sayang, the marbling effect is not what you wanted. The red yeast is an unusual addition to western baking for me. I must try it one day. When I make marble cake, I put alternate scoops of each batter into the tin, then I use a blunt knife to cut and swirl the batter, and I'm quite happy with the end result.

  13. Maybe your marbled cake is not the way you expected, but I still think it's beautiful. :) I love the white contrasting with the red yeast, so pretty.
