Lemon Chiffon Cake

Lemon Chiffon Cake
I have been baking cakes very often recently, my kids favorite! My husband requested me to make this cake for his friend. I double up the ingredients and baked two cakes instead. One for us and one for hubby's friend. This cake is very soft and fluffy, i just love eating it anytime, anyday.

    Ingredients     :

    6          egg yolks
    110 g   cake flour
    1          teaspoon baking powder
    1/4       cup vegetable oil
    2          lemon skin, shredded 
    2          teaspoon lemon juice
    5          teaspoon fresh milk
    2          teaspoon vanilla extract

    6          egg whites
    110 g   sugar
    1          teaspoon cream of tartar

    Method     :

     Preheat oven to 340 degrees. In a mixing bowl, beat egg white with sugar on high speed until white 
     and light, add cream of tartar.

      In another mixing bowl, beat on low speed with the egg yolk, cake flour, baking powder,vegetable 
      oil, lemon skin, lemon juice, fresh milk and vanilla extract until light yellow.

      Add  the egg yolk mixture into the egg white mixture, mix well everything and use a spatula to
      pour cake batter in centre tube baking pan. Bake cake for an 45 minutes or insert a chopstick comes
      out clean means cake is cooked.

      Cool the cake before cut to serve.
