Celebrating 6th year Blog Anniversary with Hokkaido Chiffon Cupcakes

Hokkaida cupcakes are small chiffon cakes which will be very soft and slightly gets collapsed once they gets cool down. Hokkaido cupcakes are simply prepared with eggs with flour,sugar,milk,oil etc. Seriously this cupcakes are very delicious, however if you dont get the meringue prefectly, you cant get this cupcakes prefectly. These cupcakes will be extremely soft, very spongy and very much delicate in texture. This cupcakes are usually sold in square cupcake cases, but still you can make it with round ones.Hokkaido cupcakes are very less in sugar thats why they are topped always with whipped cream along with fruit bites.This Hokkaido chiffon cupcakes goes for this month's challenge of International Food Challenge ,a monthly event started by  wonderful food blogger Sara, the theme for this month's IF Challenge is Anniversary theme, yes its anniversary month for International Food Challenge, we completed a year and we need to cook from the past challenges challenged by the hosts during this month. I missed two challenges coz of my trip to India,one is Hokkaido cuisine and the other one is Austrian cuisine. Obviously this time i picked Hokkaido cuisine challenged by Shazia of Cutchi Kitchen and baked some chiffon cupcakes for the celebration. Yes my blog baby enter into its 6th anniversary, yes since 5years i have been blogging. Nothing is possible without the massive support of my followers and continuous encouragements from my fellow bloggers. I must say a big thanks to each and everyone personally for helping me to make this immense achievement.

Hokkaido, this is a second largest island of Japan with Hokkaido as capital and Sapporo as it only ordinance-designated city. Hokkaido island is well known for its freshness of seafoods and its massive dairy industry.This island provides half of the country's milk and for their dairy products like butter,cheese,yoghurt and ice cream. We can see that dairy products are very much used in Hokkaido cuisine and this makes the difference from other cuisines of this country.Sending to Bake Fest guest hosted by Nalini.
