I would assume that the strawberries, kiwi and whipped topping are "optional" as it states in the ingredients list. That would mean to top it with those or other fruits as you desired. Maybe I am wrong but that is the way I understood the recipe???

Hey Kohaku, are you from New Zealand? This is a very cool recipe...and I topped mine with ripe Kiwifruit and Feijoas. Awesome. Thanks.

i've been doing chiffon cake for ages...you can use the same recipe for different flavours by replacing water with for example coconut juice and vanilla for pandan essence to make coconut pandan chiffon cake...or fresh orange juice and omit vanilla and add 1 tsp of grated orange zest to make orange chiffon cake

forgot to add, in response to LisaPeps, yes maybe you can replace with strawberry puree however it will be too thick so you might need to add water until the consistency is between water and freshly squeezed orange juice and replace vanilla with strawberry essence or flavouring...i've already tried mango puree but 'watered" it down once but did have much tang as the orang chiffon......

Maybe a strawberry daiquiri mix added to subsitute the water? Not sure if that's too sweet? I think I'll try the orange juice subsitute though!
