Gula Melaka Chiffon Cake

This Gula Melaka Chiffon was done before I went for my holiday. I love the aroma of Gula Melaka and this chiffon was filled with lot's of nice fragrance when I was baking this. Family members love it very much. The texture was light and fluffy and I had a few pieces for my coffee break.

This chiffon was pretty easy to bake. Most important ingredients is the Gula Melaka with coconut milk. which give the cake a nice coconut fragrance. I bought some nice Gula Melaka from Malacca during my last trip there.
