Orange Glow Chiffon Cake

This recipe is an adoptee from the RecipeZaar account, originally posted by Mean Chef. This makes a really nice cake! It is a bit labor-intensive, but the results are so good. I measured out the egg yolks/whites, and I found that I needed 9 egg whites and 8 egg yolks (extra-large eggs).I hope you enjoy this as much as I did!

ingredients

directions

  • Preheat oven to 325.
  • Need ungreased 10" tube pan.
  • In mixer combine flour, all but 2 tbl of the sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  • Mix for 1 minute.
  • Add oil, egg yolks, orange juice, zest and vanilla.
  • Beat 1 minute until very smooth.
  • In another bowl beat egg whites until frothy, add cream of tartar, beat to soft peaks.
  • Beat in remaining 2 tbl sugar and beat to stiff peaks.
  • Gently fold whites into batter with a balloon whisk until just blended.
  • Pour into tube pan, run metal spatula through batter to prevent air pockets and bake for about 55 minutes.
  • Invert over bottle to cool completely.
  • Unmold.
  • Remove from pan.
  • I normally glaze the cake with powdered sugar mixed with orange juice or orange juice concentrate.
  • Mix enough juice into sifted powdered sugar so that it is barely pourable.
  • Drizzle over cake so that it covers the top and runs down the sides.
  • This cake freezes beautifully (unglazed).

    Mean Chef this HAS to go into my "keepers". What a wonderful cake. This one I think I would maybe make 2 and freeze one. Followed to the T.... and plan on making this for Thanksgiving next year to to take to VA, with me. I know for a fact my 2 sister in laws will devour it and want the recipe. Thanks Mean Chef :)
