Chiffons are a popular and delicious dessert.
But there’s no way I’m ever going to eat one.
It’s too sweet and too thick.
I don’t even like chiffons, so I can’t eat them.
Chiffo, a type of chiffo cheese, is also a must-have.
But the one thing I always love is the chiffron layer cake.
This is one of those recipes I’d never try before.
I’m a fan of chinos and my mom’s always making them for me.
So, when she got her first batch of chino cheese at the supermarket, she thought she’d make the chino layer cake she’d been making for years.
What she didn’t know is that she’d just made the chinny-chino cake, and now it’s time to share.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on this chino cake recipe, and whether or not you’ve ever tried it before.
Happy chino day, everyone.
