Something that is always worth celebrating is cake. Lemon Chiffon Cake Day celebrates the love of the deliciously light lemon cake that was invented by Harry Baker in 1927. After keeping the recipe a closely-guarded secret for over twenty years, he eventually sold the recipe to Betty Crocker in 1947, after which the packet-mix became the best-selling favourite that is known and loved across the world today.
Why not mark Lemon Chiffon Cake Day by baking your family a mouth-watering cake and taking some time to appreciate its light and fluffy goodness?
The light and airy texture of lemon chiffon cake is achieved by using stiffened egg whites that are folded into the batter, and replacing butter, making the cake a rather low-fat treat. The egg-whites mean that the cake remains delectably moist, although the lack of butter flavouring does mean that you mustn’t stint on the lemon zest and juice!
