I have been wanting to try and make a boba cake for the longest time! Boba milk tea is a very popular Asian milk tea drink. Iced milk tea topped with chewy tapioca pearls. So delicious, whoever thought about putting these flavours in cake is a genius!
So this cake is basically a matcha chiffon cake topped with whipped cream that have been whipped to soft peak and tapioca pearls AND brown sugar syrup. It's basically milk tea in cake form.
You'd want to use a scale for this recipe. I have included grams and ounce (just used an online converter) however I strongly suggest using the grams function on your scale since accuracy is important for chiffon cake recipe. The most important thing is to make sure your egg whites are whipped to stiff peaks consistency and are folded in into the rest of the batter gently.
It's best to make the tapioca pearls and put them on the cake just before serving as i found that they harden in the fridge somewhat.
I have used instant tapioca pearls in the recipe. You can find these at Asian grocery stores.
