Chiffon cake has the airy height of angel food cake with the richness of pound cake, but the original recipe is full of complicated, time-consuming steps. We eliminated the unnecessary step of sifting the dry ingredients to make our recipe more accessible. We also perfected the method for beating our eggs to avoid the little pockets of cooked egg whites we encountered in the original recipe.

Serves 10 to 12

Separate the eggs when they’re cold; it’s easier. You will need a tube pan with a removable bottom for this recipe. Our favorite, the Chicago Metallic Professional Nonstick Angel Food Cake Pan, has both a removable bottom and “feet” to support the pan while the cake cools. If your pan is footless, invert the cake onto the neck of a wine bottle to cool.
