Gluten Free, Sugar Free, Banana Chiffon Cake
Before you click this window shut due to its unappetizing title, let me just say that this was purely experimental.
I wanted to know whether i could beat egg whites to its “soft peak” stage (as required in chiffon making), without the use of sugar.
And if the egg white was successfully beaten till soft peaks, would it stay that way during the baking time in the oven? Would it aerate my chiffon the way it should when it is accompanied by its sugar sidekick.
So, to put it shortly,
Is sugar indispensable in chiffon making?
The answer is,
And i’ve got proof,
Here’s a banana chiffon cake, made completely without sugar. It rose VERY well,in fact i must say, it rose better than some of the sugared chiffons i made.
So, to everyone out there who are opting the sugar-free ( to whom i offer the utmost respect and admiration ), and gluten free life
and to baby Crustabakes,
This gluten free, sugar free, chiffon cake is dedicated to you!
PS: this cake does not taste as horrible as i would have thought! In fact it’s so light, i managed to scarf down both cakes in one serving.
