I have a confession to make.
I have never made a chiffon cake.
Knowing how serious this omission in my life was, I decided stop delaying a moment longer and committed to here and now (last night) put an end to my procrastination and chef me up a chiffon cake!
I gathered my ingredients and set off in pursuit of a new kitchen adventure.
I whipped my egg whites, I put my liquid ingredients into a well I had dug in my dry ingredients, I mixed and I folded and everything was going along quite well.
I cooked it for about 55 minutes and went to turn up the heat a tad and it was at this point I got a smidge worried...
Oh my, it appeared to be growing at an alarming rate!
Well, it did eventually cook and I was able to contain it within the walls of the kitchen when I pulled it out of the oven.
Had to trim it down "a bit" before it would really stand on the little legs.
After it was cold I released it from its pan and decided to wrap it for the night and continue on the morrow.
This morning I de-crumbed it and frosted it with a vanilla-almond buttercream frosting.
Maybe not the prettiest cake I have ever created but tasted great and was fun to create. Next time I will only make the small batch of batter.
The cake fit perfectly on our new platter too!
