Raspberry Chiffon Cake
This top winning cake is amazing. It has so much flavor, plus it’s huge. The 8 egg whites help it to rise a mile high and the one inch thick whipped cream topping adds to the height and the unbelievable melt-in-your-mouth taste.
15 mins Cook Time
1 hr Yield: 12 servings
- 2 cups All-purpose Flour
- 1 1/2 cups White Sugar
- 1 tablespoon Baking Powder
- 1 teaspoon Salt
- 1 small pkg. Sugar-Free Raspberry Gelatin (Jell-O)
- 1/2 cup Vegetable Oil
- 8 Large Eggland's Best Eggs, separated
- 1 cup Cold Water
- 1 tablespoon Raspberry Extract
- 1/2 teaspoon Cream of Tartar
- 1 quart Heavy Whipping Cream
- 2/3 cup White Sugar*
- 1/2 tablespoon Raspberry Extract
Adjust rack to lower middle of the oven. Preheat oven to 325°.
Wash a 10" angel food tube pan in hot soapy water to ensure it is grease free.
Measure flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and gelatin into a deep mixing bowl. Mix thoroughly. Make a well and add oil, egg yolks, water and raspberry extract in order given. Don't beat yet.
In a large mixing bowl, beat egg whites and cream of tartar until stiff peaks form.
Now beat egg yolk batter until smooth and light, then pour over egg whites. Fold in with a rubber spatula (try not to stir, using only a folding technique until well combined). Bake for 55 - 60 minutes, or until done (it will feel solid when tapped and a pick should come out clean or with a few moist crumbs). Cover loosely with foil should the top darken. Remove from oven and hang upside down on a bottle until cool-about 1 ½ hrs.
To make the icing, place icing ingredients in a chilled deep mixing bowl and beat with chilled beaters until smooth peaks form. Brush crumbs from cake, spread on a smooth coating layer and refrigerate along with the bowl of whipped cream. After ten minutes, frost top and sides of cake. Place some whipped cream in a zip-top bag, clip off the corner (or use a pastry bag and tip) and pipe around the bottom, top edge and hole edge. Garnish with fresh raspberries, if available and mint leaves. Keep refrigerated. *Taste to see if less sugar suits you.
