Sweet Potato Chiffon Cake

Sweet potato chiffon cake

My new Bosch kitchen machine was collection for checking.  The engine ran hot after minutes of bread dough kneading.   Without the aid of powerful kitchen machine while I would like to bake, I went back to the manual mode of cake baking. I saw a nice photos of a sweet potato chiffon cake.  And I went for it though no clear steps are shown. The ingredients were for a 10-inch cake.   I measured 80% for a 9-inch cake.

Add the cream of tartar to the egg whites. Beat until foamy.  Add sugar in 2-3 batch.  Beat the egg whites until it is stiff.

Fold in the sifted flour in 2-3 batches.

I put it in a 170C preheated oven.  But baked it at 160C for around 35 minutes.
