"I love this cake. It is really light and not too sweet. Asian people will like this kind of cake. I made many chiffon cake with whipped cream before. This cake is a little bit dry compare to many chiffon I made but It is perfect with whipped cream. The cake is not to moist."

"The cake was so dry I threw it out before making the filling. Maybe the flour mixture is not to be beaten in but folded into the egg mixture?"
