- 1 3/4 cups cake flour
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 6 egg yolks
- 3/4 cup water
- 1 tbsp lemon zest
- 6 egg whites
- 1/2 tsp cream of tartar
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- 2 1/2 cups lemon pie filling
- 8 slices lemon
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, and 1/2 cup sugar. Add oil, egg yolks, water and lemon rind. Beat with an electric mixer until smooth.
- In a small bowl, beat egg whites and cream of tartar until peaks form. Gradually add 3/4 cup sugar, and beat until very stiff and shiny peaks form. Fold 1/3 of the whites into the batter, then quickly fold in remaining whites until no streaks remain. Turn batter into ungreased 10-inch tube pan.
- Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Invert cake and cool completely in pan. When cool, loosen edges and shake pan to remove cake.
- To Make Filling: Beat cream to stiff peaks. Fold in lemon filling. Chill until stiff.
- To Assemble Cake: Slice cake horizontally into 3 equal layers. Fill layers with 1/3 cup of filling. Spread remaining filling on top layer. Decorate with lemon slices.
This recipe fits with chiffon cake category because it is a lemon chiffon cake. It begins with creating a meringue with the egg whites and sugar while all the other ingredients (egg yolks and sifted flour mixture) create a batter. Then you fold the two mixtures together and the cake is ready to bake!

This recipe differs from class in only a few ways. In class, we did not use add flavorings like coffee (or liquor, because that is often used), just water. That is mostly the only difference ingredient-wise. However, we folded our ingredients differently. In class, we put all the meringue on one side of the bowl and poured the flour-yolk mixture into the other half and mixed it from there. These are the only differences from class.
