Chocolate Raisin Chiffon Cake

My colleague gave me a can of chocolate powder meant for making hot chocolate. I wanted to try using it for baking instead. Decided to bake a chocolate chiffon cake as this is the easiest to do. However instead of using a 18cm tube pan, I used two small tube pan to bake it. Sharing with you the recipe here.

I may have gotten mine from Phoon Huat a long time ago, I cannot really remember. If you omit raisins, no need to adjust anything. I used the block chocolate from Phoon Huat. Sorry I am not sure what your chocolate chiffon cake is so not sure what you mean by integrating it into your recipe.
