How to Make Heavenly Chiffon Cake (TNT)


  1. In a large mixing bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt,
    nutmeg, allspice and cloves. Make a well in the center of the mixture. Add
    oil, yolks and water. Beat with electric mixer on low to medium speed until
    combined. Beat on high speed for about 5 minutes or until satin smooth. Set
  2. Thoroughly wash beaters. In a very large mixing bowl, beat egg whites
    and cream of tartar until stiff peaks form (tips stand straight). Pour batter
    in thin stream over egg whites; gently fold together. Pour batter into an
    ungreased 10" tube pan. Place pan on a baking sheet or pizza pan. Bake in a
    325 oven for 60-65 minutes, or until top springs back when lightly touched.
    Immediately invert cake in pan. Cool completely. Gently loosen sides of cake
    from pan with a spatula or knife. Invert cake over a serving plate and remove
    pan. Drizzle with Browned Butter Icing and sprinkle with nuts. Makes 12
  3. Browned Butter Icing:
    In a small pan, heat 3 tablespoons butter over medium low heat for about 15
    minutes or until browned. Remove browned butter from heat. Place 2 cups
    sifted powdered sugar in a medium bowl. Stir in browned butter, 1 teaspoon
    vanilla and 3-4 tablespoons milk until icing consistency. Makes 3/4 cup.
