Many believe Chiffon cake is the ‘original’ wedding cake filling. A chiffon cake is a very light cake made with vegetable oil, eggs, sugar, flour, baking powder, and flavorings.  It is a combination of both batter and foam type cakes.  The lack of butter means that chiffon cakes lack much of the rich flavor of butter cakes, and hence they are typically served accompanied with flavorful sauces or other accompaniments, such as chocolate or fruit fillings.

Here are today’s five thing to know about Chiffon Cake:

  • Cooking Tip: To get the most lemon flavor in a recipe, use the rind instead of the juice.  It contains the lemon oils.
  • Lemons are hybrids; first cultivated in the middle ages, it is a mix of wild limes and citrons.
  • Generally, Lemons grown in more arid areas have more acid in them while those grown in wetter climates are sweeter,less acidic.
  • Lemonade was a favorite of Chinese emperors long before its modern popularity in Western culture.
  • Due to its high acidity, lemon juice is often used as a cleaning agent.
