Chiffon Strawberry Cake


There’s a cake that’s probably the best cake I’ve ever baked. In Central Ohio you will find Golden Delight Bakeries and they famously sell this cake. 

8 egg white  

1/4 tsp cream of tartar  

1/2 cup sugar

8-9 egg yolks

1 cup sugar  

1 tsp vanilla  

1/2 tsp salt

2 cups cake flour

2 tsp baking powder  

1/2 cup water  

1/2 cup oil


1 quart heavy whipping cream

1/2 tsp vanilla  

1 cup powdered sugar  

I tsp gelatin

3 tablespoons cold water

1/2 sheet pan, ungreased, oven 350 degrees. Whip egg whites with cream of tartar. Add 1/2 cup sugar slowly. Set aside. 

Cream yolks with remaining sugar. Whip until light in color and volume increases. Add vanilla. Mix flour with salt and baking powder. Add to yolks and sugar. Blend well. Add water and oil. Let mix 3 minutes. Fold in the whipped egg whites in 3 batches. Pour into parchment lined pan. Bake 20-22 minutes.  

When done immediately run a knife around the edge. Cool completely.  

Cut fruit and put on paper towels. Bloom gelatin on cold water. Whip cream with vanilla and powdered sugar.  Heat gelatin, cool and pour into whipped cream, combine well.  

Cut cake in half. Put a layer whipped cream on the bottom layer. Top with diced fruit. Add second layer and frost with remaining whipped cream. Decorate with fruit.
