Why This Recipe Works
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.
