When youre bored, bake!

5 years ago

When youre bored, bake! Thats something one of my best friends and I use to say back in high school when we were taking a pastry class! This was from Saturday and I was bored so I baked, plus I was also baking for the Superbowl! I had a family super bowl party so it was the perfect time to whip up something sweet. I wasnt really prepared to bake or anything so I looked through my recipe book and also looked in my pantry to see what I had and I only have ingredients to make an Orange Chiffon Cake. I got the recipe from this ancient recipe book that I got from my mom. Its seriously ancient because its so old and frail, and it apparently came with her first stand mixer that she got years ago. The recipe was hard to read from the book I had since it was so old, so I was kinda going along with it but I also mainly used a very similar recipe from http://allrecipes.com

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 ½ cups sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
7 eggs, separated
½ cup orange juice
½ cup vegetable oil
¼ cup water
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 tablespoon grated orange peel
½ teaspoon cream of tartar

1. Sift the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt into a large bowl; make a well in the center. In another bowl, beat egg yolks until thicken and lemon-colored. Beat in the orange juice, oil, water, vanilla, and orange and lemon peels. Pour into well in dry ingredients; beat with a wooden spoon until smooth. In a mixing bowl, beat egg whites on medium speed until foamy. Add cream of tartar; beat until stiff peaks form. Gradually fold into batter.
2. Transfer to an ungreased 10-in. tube pan. Bake at 325 degrees F for 55-60 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched. Immediately invert cake; cool completely. Loosen cake from sides of pan; remove cake and place on a serving platter.

This cake was supposed to have a glaze to go on top but I didnt have any powdered sugar to use to make a glaze, but it was still good without it anyways!
