This was my absolute favorite cake as a child. We always got to choose what kind of cake we wanted for our birthday, and this was always my choice!

This is a lovely take on a chiffon cake and I have made many. Recommend these cakes highly but the directions need to be followed exactly. Best made in a tube or bundt pan. Also, a better method might be to use cake flour (it is lighter and gives a nices texture) but that is my preference for any chiffon or sponge type cake. Lends itself to many fillings and frosting. Also can be used as a base for fruit topped with whipping cream. Thanks for submitting.
