Blueberry Chiffon cake

Blueberry Chiffon Cake

This might be my last entry before my summer holidays. Still have lots of packing to do before the trip which is this Monday, 18th June and we will be back to Kuwait on 9th July… just enough time to prepare for Ramadan. The whole family is looking forward to this trip… well, I think everyone deserve a time to unwind after a long and challenging couple of months, don’t you think? This year we decided to do London and Europe tour by Cox & King,UK. The tour will be covering 9 countries in 15 days. Actually a friend of ours went for this tour last year and he told us that it was fantastic. I’ll let you know all about it after the trip.

Wokey… this is my Blueberry Chiffon cake that I made 2 days ago and the recipe was taken from here but I halved the ingredient due to my smaller chiffon cake pan. This cake is so light and refreshing…. so, please give it a try guys!
