Lemon Chiffon Cake

Lemon Chiffon Cake

This is about the fluffiest and tastiest cakes that I enjoy making. One that many have asked for the recipe….so happy baking and Enjoy!!

ingr-edit7 eggs
2 1/4 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup cooking oil
3 teaspoon finely shredded lemon peel
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar


Preheat oven to a 325 degree F ( 175 degrees C)


In a large mixing bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.

Make a well in the center of flour mixture. Add oil, egg yolks, lemon peels, vanilla, and 3/4 cup cold water.


 Beat with an electric mixer on low speed until combined. Beat on high speed for about 5 minutes or until smooth.

You’ll find that it’s thick….I have the best helpers that will demonstrate the thickness of the batter in this video.



Thoroughly wash the beaters.

Keep beating the egg whites until stiff peaks form (tips stand straight). 







Pour batter in a thin stream over beaten egg whites; fold in gently.






Pour into an ungreased 10-inch tube pan. I use the nordic Ware star bunt pan.


Bake in oven for 65 minutes until top springs back when lightly touched. Immediately invert cake (leave in pan); cool thoroughly. Loosen sides of cake from pan; remove cake.

Makes 12-16 servings.

My Blog is Born

My Blog is Born

Today marks a moment where I finally said “That’s it! I just gotta do it!” no more procrastinating and avoiding what I’ve been wanting to do for such a longtime.

Taking those countless requests of “how to-s”, “what’s the recipe” and just pure fun sharing I have taken that leap of entering the blogosphere once again. Yes you read correctly I did say once again….

They say to know where you’re going you should look at where you’ve been, or something like that….so a look back into history when life seemed simpler. I started writing my first blog summer of 2005 . Just talking about me, things I liked, disliked, matters of concerns, life and so forth. No real purpose, no real message just keeping myself and those that read the blog entertained. 14 months latter I posted my last blog post after the birth of my first daughter, Jennah, and just never posted again.

7 years later with a clearer vision and purpose I’m sitting behind the screen with a little knot in my gut typing away my new blog username.

So here’s to a new beginning a little something to inspire and motivate.

Keep remembering “Making Life Memorable” is what it’s all about!
