I adapted recipe from Christine’s which uses the least sugar and most bananas among all the recipes i found, also amended the recipe to suit my bigger size of chiffon pan, her original recipe is for 8-in pan
I used 23cm chiffon pan / approx 9-in boight from Bake with yen, and 65g large size eggs, baked at 160-165 for 55 minutes.
100 gm cake flour
4 egg yolks
18 gm caster sugar
44 gm vegetable oil
56 gm milk
1/6 tsp salt
300g ripe bananas, Local blackish small bananas

Ingredients of egg whites:
5 egg whites
50 gm caster sugar
2 drops of white vinegar in replacement of 1/2 tsp cream of tartar




2nd try below is using recipe from Kitchen Tigress. i also increase proportionately the recipe so that it will fill my large chiffon mold better

233g very ripe bananas
80 g egg yolks , about 4.5 large egg yolk
20 g castor sugar
53 g corn oil
93 g cake flour
1⁄3 tsp baking powder
2⁄3 tsp baking soda
1⁄6 tsp salt

187 g egg whites from about 4.5 large egg
2 drops of white vinegar in replacement of 1⁄12 tsp cream of tartar
67 g castor sugar



Bake it at 150 – 165 Celcius for 50-55 minutes.



sink very slightly


see, it sink slightly in the middle ring area


the holes are slightly bigger which i think is due to usage of baking powder and baking soda.

Overall, there is no clear winner here. Both are quite good, the 2nd recipe from Kitchen Tigress is better ever so slightly because i like that the holes look bigger, and therefore very slightly more airy. Also, there is no need of milk, so seems to be a easier recipe, also it requires both baking powder and baking soda which normally will not be used in chiffon recipe… If you don’t have baking soda/baking powder, then just go for the other recipe. Both recipe are really good and uses a lot of banana and minimal sugar. The 1st recipe from Christine using less sugar thus feels slightly more healthy

If you want to make chiffon, do try out Cream Cheese Chiffon which is really good as well

Invited Review: Jessie Diners, IOI Business Park, Puchong (across the road from Puchong IOI Mall)

Thanks to Vincent of Jessie Diners, i get to have a taste of their offerings. This shoplot was previously occupied by Santino’s Pizza, and now it is being revamped to Jessie Diners which offers more varieties of food, including pizza, spaghetti, and also briyani rice which is available Tuesdays and Friday only. This may sound weird that a pizza place is offering briyani, but once i heard it is prepared by their Pakistani/Bangladeshi chef, umm… it sounds like a very promising briyani.

Jessie Diners is located in Pusat Perdagangan IOI (IOI Business Park), it is quite an obscure location, it is across the highway from IOI Mall, Puchong, normally we will pass this by without even noticing what is in this building. This building is mostly office building, with them being the sole dining establishment here.


For veggie lover, there is a few pizza choices: Margherita pizza <pizza sauce, tomato, basil leave, cheese>, vegetable galore pizza <green pepper, onion, tomato, black olives, mushroom, pineapple cheese>, cheesy delight <blend of 4 types of cheese: Parmesan, mozzarella, cheddar and edam cheese> & Mixed fruit pizza <marinara sauce, mixed fruit and mozzarella cheese>



They have pizza combo options for up to 8 person


ice lemon tea, great that it is not too sweet 🙂


really like this Greek salad, only RM9.90, and filled with so much vegetables and topped with salty feta cheese. Yum~ It is lined with cucumber cube at the bottom, layer with onion, black olives, green capsicum. Plus point for being big portion as well.


Garlic bread, RM6.90, with appetizing sour cream dip.


Hula Haiwaiian pizza with pineapple, turkey ham and chicken, RM12.90 for 6-inch small size


And this is quite good, surprisingly! Mix fruit pizza 10-inch regular size for RM27.90. It contains marinara sauce, mixed fruit <peach, lychee, diced pear etc> and mozzarella cheese. I wasn’t expecting much and this fruit pizza thing sounds too weird, but surprisingly it works. The slightly sweet juicy fruit paired well with the savoury marinara sauce and cheese. Go try!


And now the little one will definitely be attracted by their offering of ice cream in cupcake form. 


My niece actually gave a rating of 40 stars, four-zero for this ice cream over the main food, oh well, what to expect of a 6-year-old… RM5.90 for this


This is their secret item off the menu, thank you Vincent for giving us this for takeaway. Guess what this is? At first look, it looks like BBQ sauce…. But this is chocolate cheese pizza with optional chili flakes as topping. They just recently done testing this recipe and it is not in their regular menu, they are planning to offer this as a seasonal offering, like for Christmas etc. At the mean time, if you wish to try this item, just tell them, and they can make this for you. This is definitely unique, perhaps could substitute as a birthday cake, RM35.90 for 12-inch large size. Do eat this while it is piping hot or fridge cold, it is not as good when it is room temp 😉


Buy 2 large pizza(Classic) for RM39.90 or 2 regular pizza(Classic) for RM29.90

They have delivery service and also ample eating area available. Minimum delivery order is RM35. Parking is in basement of the building, i think it is RM2 for first 3 hours.



Lunch time dine-in promotion~

Overall, recommended order is mixed fruit pizza, greek salad. Chocolate pizza is an interesting item to try as well.
