Coffee Chiffonlets with Dulce de Leche Whipped Cream

I just back home after 2 week of vacation and feel that I have to bake the next cake. I found have at home everything I need for this delicious cake even I have already prepared ahead Dulce de Leche and basic sugar syrup.

So I quickly fill up the fridge with fresh eggs and started.

I didn't have mini angel-food cake pans, so I used my regular bottom detached pan for Angel food, which I really love.

I just have a little doubts about to skip a greasing step. Rose writes do not grease non-stick angel food pan, but my pan is a regular one. From other hand I remember that in angel food baking it is necessary not grease the pan, because it is one of the leavening factors. Here we use a baking powder in recipe. I decided to follow resipe and at the end I have a little problem to invert my cake immediately on the rack. It was sticked to a bottom. So I run small spatula around edges of pan to loosen cake and after that invert cake on the rack. When the cake was cool completely I applyied syrup and keep it for the next day. It was seem like there to much syrup for the cake and I afraid that I will found the cake shapeless for the next day, but ...
This is how it looks on the day after with syrup

Last stage - to whip the cream was completed 20 minutes before my guests come into the house.
I enlarged recipe of whipped cream by 150% especially for whipped cream lovers, but I have not enough time to finish the cake with splashes of bittersweet chocolate.

Tasting panel:
It is so light, just delicious.
I'll definitely bake this cake again. The cream just melt in your mouth and syrup gives the cake a real coffee flavor.

  2. Congratulations on Featured Baker of the week!! Your cake turned out great. I understand your hesitation when Rose says "do NOT grease", but like you said, there's a good reason for it :o) I love the thick layer of whipped cream you put on top :o)
