Mango Yoghurt Chiffon Cake

I find making chiffon cake very challenging and intimidating at the same time . This is my third time making chiffon cake and I still finds it intimidating :p  I am still not satisfied with the result....but this time there is great improvement !  I am happy it did not collapse LOL!   It turned out moist yet light and fluffy with a slight mango fragrance ...mmmmm I shall make this again for sure.  I got hold of this recipe from........................................................

yea...Bee Bee of  Honey Bee Sweet and Ann of  AnncooJournal !   Thanks to these two ladies for sharing such a wonderful chiffon cake recipe. It is healthy and addictive too.   My mango bits were way too small so you can't really see them and being an amateur in making chiffon, the mango bits were not evenly mixed so certain parts , there were no mango bits in sight..hahaha so if you are lucky you get a piece with lots of mango bits :p   Don't worry, the next one will be better...I promised to deliver a better one or I bring shame to my two sifu :p
