Recipe: Lemon Chiffon Cake

(Adapted from Oprah.com)

Ingredients:

2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup water
7 egg yolks
1/2 cup vegetable oil
Grated zest of 2 lemons
2 teaspoon vanilla
8 egg whites
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar

Method:

Preheat the oven to 325°. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Make a well in the center; add the water, egg yolks, oil, lemon zest and vanilla. Whisk the dry ingredients into the yolk mixture until the batter is blended and smooth. Set aside.

In a large mixer bowl, beat the egg whites and the cream of tartar at medium-low speed until foamy. Gradually increase the speed to high and beat the whites until stiff (but not dry) peaks form. Gently fold 1/3 of the beaten whites into the batter with a rubber spatula just until blended. Fold in the remaining whites just until combined. Pour the batter into an ungreased tube pan or bundt pan. (I used bundt pan because I don’t have a tube pan).

Bake 1 hour, or until the top springs back when lightly touched with a fingertip and a cake tester inserted into the center comes out clean.

  4. Precious Pea says:

    Pandan flavour is my favourite. I usually get mine from pasar malam. Cos it’s so soft, can be quite addictive. Finish off within minutes. Hahaha…well, it’s not fattening rite?

  5. Nabeela says:

    Love your picture…and I love chiffon cake too…my favorite flavor has to be orange chiffon cake :)

  6. K & S says:

    mmm lemon chiffon, sounds wonderful. In Japan, they have Earl Grey chiffon which is quite nice too.

  7. Lydia says:

    Hi Rasa Malaysia,

    I am a big fan of your blog. Do you happen to know any Sarawakian recipes? I was born there but am a transplant in the US and would love to know if there is a Malaysian out there who knows the ingredients for “kampua mee” – the famous dry noodle dish from Sarawak.

  21. Graeme says:

    Oooh, if you look closely, you can see little flecks of lemon zest amongst it’s innards – Beautiful.

  22. teckiee says:

    Any chiffon is good.. as long i dont have to DIY on my own.. LOL

  23. Kevin says:

    Lemon chiffon cake sounds good. I just tried an orange chiffon cake today.

  24. A kitchen scientist & a white rat hubby!!! says:

    lovely lovely cake, .looks soo moist and yumm

  25. PrincessJournals says:

    pandan chiffon cake is the best! back in msia, all bakeries sell them but now in the us, came str8 fr the box. lol!

  26. joey says:

    Your cake looks lovely! So tall and fluffy! I was always scared of making chiffon cake what with the beating of egg whites and getting the cake to be fluffy…but I prevailed and made on too (as part of this month’s Daring Bakers challenge)! :) It is nowhere near as fluffy looking as your’s though :)

    I like pandan too!

  27. MeiyeN says:

    chiffon cake my favourite! love almost all da flavours… :D

  28. daphne says:

    Pandan is my fav! This looks lovely and light! just what I need now.

  29. Marie says:

    I love lemon so when I stumbled across your recipe for lemon chiffon cake I decided I had to try it. I thought it was a good recipe to try for someone like me (who has never made a cake from scratch before).

    The next time I make this cake I think I’ll have to halve the recipe. I tried it today and it turned out wonderfully! :) Only, it made so much batter that while it was cooking some of the batter fell to the bottom of the oven and caused a very small fire (I caught it right away and no harm was caused).

    Despite this, the cake was a success and everyone loved it. :)

    I’m going to try to make a cake for my mother’s birthday next month…this time without any fire! *lol*

    Thank you for posting this recipe on your blog. :) I will be coming back to find more delicious recipes.

    Your recipe is so easy to follow and my lovely chiffon cake turn out perfect. I share it with my friends for Chinese New Year! Thanks!

    I love baking! I looked up a recipe for a Japanese Strawberry shortcake and realized that the method was very similar to a chiffon cake style, and that’s what got me into it =) I just made my first two, yesterday and the day before, but both of them turned out rock hard…Though my second one wasn’t as horrific; I must be doing something wrong, huh? I must try your version though! Nice pics!

  32. Jenni says:

    Lekker!!!!

  33. Dila says:

    I have been looking for a chiffon cake recipe without the use of cake flour. I have never had lemon chiffon cake before but theres always the first time right?

  34. Anonymous says:

    What kind of flour?

  35. amy says:

    I tried this recipe last night. The cake was not as moist as I thought it would be. Perhaps a cake flour would be better or substitute water for milk.

    • It’s been a while since I make this cake. I do remember it is a little dry. I didn’t mind it much since I enjoyed it with a cup of 3-in-1 mixed instant coffee :) I will try your suggestions next time.

  36. Jennifer says:

    Anybody know how to make bean curds?????

  37. pam says:

    Hi, Sorry to take you off the track !!! Does anyone have the recipe for daging Rendang. Not the one in a curry sauce. The one that as big pieces of meat and in a red or dark brown dry sauce. You can get in most malay restaurants or at malay weddings. I use to get at a Singapore resturant in Manchester but it as now closed. Missing it very much. I also use to eat it in Brunei on a regular basis. Would love if some one could share their recipe thanks..

  38. syy says:

    Hi, I’m new in baking. still trying very hard. tried your recipe but it doesn’t turn out like it supposed to be. The cake was not fluffy at all, what’s wrong? Is it because the egg whites was not beaten enough? I used hand to whisk them.

  39. Jane says:

    My favorite is pandan chiffon cake:)
    Does anyone have their fav pandan chiffon recipe to share? Surely appreciate it:)

  40. Pam in Vancouver says:

    Hi, wondering if you could suggest how I would use this recipe to make a pandan version? I got a hold of a bunch of pandan leaves the other day and now wondering what to do with it…what do I do with the pandan leaves so that I can add to this cake?

  41. yoyoni says:

    can anyone help me, my mum always tried to make this type of cake but failed everytime when we bake it. the top will burnt (like dark not brown) and inside is still uncooked. the oven was preheated to 180c. umm and we got hard peaks when beating the egg whites
    help anyone?

  42. shirlynn85 says:

    what if i doesn’t have cream of tartar? can i substitute it with somthing else?

  43. Mavis says:

    Wonderful site. Plenty of useful information here.
    I’m sending it to several friends ans also sharing in delicious.

    And naturally, thanks for your effort!

  44. Minerva says:

    I have seen plenty of useful things on your web site about pcs.
    However, I have got the thoughts and opinions that notebooks are still not quite powerful
    sufficiently to be a sensible choice if you frequently do things that require
    many power, for example video editing and enhancing. But for net
    surfing, statement processing, and quite a few other typical computer work they are perfectly, provided you do not mind the small screen size.
    Thank you for sharing your thinking.
