Choc Chips Cheese Chiffon Cake

Chinese New Year is coming soon and it's high time I clear my fridge off some items before buying foodstuffs for CNY celebrations [this cake was bake before Christmas Day].    There is this little bit of cream cheese which I put to good use here.  Did you notice that the name of the cake has 5Cs?  In short, just call it 5Cs cake, not too bad, ye!
The cake turns out lovely - fragrant, soft and spongy.  A little savoury from the cheese and sweetness from the choc chips.  
Ingredients For Egg Yolk Mixture
5 egg yolks [I used size A eggs]
15 gm castor sugar [I used 1 tbsp]
50 ml melted cream cheese [double-boiled cream cheese]
50 ml milk
60 gm cake flour [I used superfine flour]
30 gm rice flour
1/4 tsp salt
30 gm choc chips
Ingredients For Egg White Mixture
5 egg whites
1/4 tsp cream of tartar [optional]
45 gm castor sugar [I used 3 tbsp]
  1. Sieve both flours together and mix in the salt.
  2. Separate egg yolks and whites into 2 separate bowls.
  3. Beat egg yolks and sugar until creamy, drizzle in melted cream cheese.  Beating mixture as you drizzle in the milk until well blended.   
  4. Fold in sifted flours and mix until well combined.   Lightly stir in chocolate chips.
  5. Preheat oven at 160 degrees C for 10 minutes.
  6. In a separate bowl, whisk egg whites until frothy, add in the cream of tartar [if using].    Continue whisking and add in sugar in 3 batches.  Whisk until soft to stiff peaks.
  7. Fold lightly 1/3 portion of the egg white into the egg yolk mixture until well combined.    Then mix with the remaining egg white.  Fold until well combined.  
  8. Pour batter into a 19-20 cm [7 1/2 inch] tube pan.   Shake a little to smooth out the batter and tap pan a few times on table top to release trapped air.
  9. Bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes.
  10. Remove from oven and invert immediately to cool cake before slicing.
  11. Use a slim spatula to run around the edge of the pan and around the tube to dislodge cake before slicing cake.
