Chiffon cake is a light spongy cake made fluffy with egg whites.It can be easily made gluten free using rice flour or any other gluten free flour.The emulsification process with lemon juice and vegetable oil packs bubbles into this cake and beaten egg whites make it super spongy,soft and moist.It is the first type of cake where vegetable oil was use instead of butter to yield amazing results.  We are familiar to the word “Chiffon” describing a very light silky fabric, the texture of the cake is similar airy and light. It is said to have been invented by Harry baker who kept his recipe secret for decades before selling to a magazine and the first cake recipe published was of orange chiffon cake.

I used mango and whipped cream to do the frosting on the cake.I am so happy with the texture of this cake that I want to make it again.I prepared it in 9 inches spring-form pan .Instead if 6 inches was used I think the cake would have been thicker to look. If you don’t have a spring-form pan you should use a normal pan with butter paper lining.
