Perfect Chiffon Cake Recipe


  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup sugar    
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice    
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch 
  • 5 egg whites (1/4 cup) 


Preheat to 325 degrees F. Bake for 18 to 22 minutes or until the toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Run a knife around the sides of the pan to loosen it, and cool completely with the pan on wire racks. Remove the side of the pan. Yield: 16 servings (serving size: 1 slice).   

1. In a heatproof bowl set over simmering water, whisk egg whites and salt until warm to the touch and sugar is dissolved, about 3 minutes. Move the bowl to a countertop. Using an electric mixer, beat on medium speed until soft peaks form when the beaters are lifted. Gradually add 1 tablespoon of the sugar and continue beating until stiff glossy peaks form when beaters are lifted, 2 to 3 minutes longer. Set aside at room temperature for later use.
