It's day 2 of Chinese New Year and I made a Black Sesame Chiffon Cake for my family and relatives. The recipe is taken from Keiko Ishida's Okashi - a sweet, classy book with a clean and neat layout. I've been meaning to try this for some time but I couldn't find black sesame paste. One day when I was shopping at Sun Lik, I spotted it on their shelf! Of course, I grabbed it, and made this delicious cake. I love Keiko's chiffon cake recipes. They always yield a soft, cottony texture that's has a nice bite to it. I love this for its lovely texture as well as the sweet and salty combination that's refreshing and very tasty. This is one cake which I can eat and eat and not get sick of, as the saltiness of the sesame rounded out the sweetness level nicely.
Happy Chinese New Year everyone!
