Try out this recipe from Chef Keiko's new cookbook - Okashi. It turn out quite well except that the colour was different from her book maybe due to my substitution of sesame paste with sesame powder.

Hi Wen,

I really want to get this book and make the Black Sesame Chiffon cake, but the book is not available in the U.S. yet. The link to the recipe leads to an add for mayonaise. Is there a chance I can get the recipe from you? Your cake looks so delicious!


Wen said...

Hi Anna,

I will email to you.

Can I grab the recipe from you please? My email is

The dark hue of the chiffon cake, is it only achievable with sesame paste? I only have sesame powder....


Wen said...

Hi Quinn,

Will email to you.

The first time I also used sesame powder. I add a little water to make it into paste.

Happy baking!

Hi Jas,

I attended Chef Keiko class once and all her recipes she used top flour from Prima. So I think you can use that. The BS chiffon cake I used top flour too. However sometimes I used cake flour when I ran out of top flour. It's work as well.

Hi Wen,

Is it possible for you to send me this recipe as well? I can't seem to find the book to buy it and ever since I had this cake in Taiwan I've been trying to replicate it. It looks great, and with a bit of whipped black sesame cream frosting it might just hit the spot =).

Hi Wen,

I am interested in baking the chiffon cake. Can you email me the recipe at I love all your chiffon recipes. It somehow works better when I am using your recipes.....Thanks for the lovely recipes. One more question: What is top flour that you always mention? Is it self raisong flour? I always use plain superfine cake flour> Any difference?

Hi Anonymous,

How do I address you? Thanks for trying out the chiffon recipes in my blog.

Top flour is what we call in Singapore. A premium flour with extra fine and soft texture suitable for baking butter cookies, chiffon cakes, crepes, doughnuts, pineapple tarts, swiss rolls and all kinds of soft fluffy sponge cakes. There are 2 brands that you can get top flour from in S'pore - Prima & Bake King. Happy baking!
