  1. I often make chiffon cake. Because I liked soft chiffon cake, I reduced some flour and baking powder. And I reduced one egg yolk. I did not put oil, but it was very good. When I made chiffon cake, I did this in the same way because I always made it without oil. Yummy!! The are light and flavorful. Thank you very much!
  2. I made this cake for my family not to long ago except I did not add the orange rind but instead I added strawberry extract. I really enjoyed the cake. It was so soft and easy to cut. It made so much and unfortunately went to waste. It was still a good cake.
  3. 3.5 tastes like pound cake, instead of Chiffon cake. I baked it in a 9*13 pan for 45 mins in 350F. When I baked it, the whole house smells really good. My DH said it tastes pretty good. We both think It did not taste as fluffy as ones we had before. next time I will try to cut off the flour into 1 1/2 cup of flour.
  4. nice cake i like it and my husbend also thankyou internetnut
  5. This cake has a great texture, it's moist, and has a faint orange flavor - very pleasant. I did not frost it, but instead served it with fresh fruit and whipped cream. Made for the Cake-A-Thon in memory of Chef-I-Am.
