Orange Chiffon Cake Instructions
- Preheat your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Then take a 10-inch tube pan, place a parchment paper at the bottom, and set it aside.
- In a small bowl, add ½ cup of water and orange juice and mix it well.
- In another bowl, whisk the egg yolk, oil, vanilla, ¾ cup of reserved orange juice, and half the orange zest.
- Again in another big bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, granulated sugar, and salt.
- Whisk in the reserved egg yolk mixture until the batter is smooth, and keep it aside.
- Whip the egg white and cream of tartar to stiff peaks in a separate bowl by using the electric mixer on medium-high speed.
- Then add about 1⁄3 of the egg white mixture to the batter and whisk it gently.
- By using a spatula, fold in the remaining egg white mixture.
- Now into a prepared pan, pour in the batter.
- Bake it on the centre rack of the oven until the top is golden brown and springs back when touched, for about 60 minutes.
- Then invert the pan over the neck of the bottle to cool it completely.
- Remove it when it is cooled.
