My husband came home with a huge bucket of oranges this week. Needless to say,
I HAVE to come up with some creative ways to use them. Afterall, eating oranges by the slice
are just fine, but eating oranges with a hand full of fabulous ingredients, well,
So here you have it, my first orange inspired recipe
Orange Custard Chiffon Cake*
did I mention I had a whole flat of eggs I had to use up as well?!
separate the eggs...
Add the scalding milk and...
Set them aside.
Combine the sugar and flour mixture and the baking powder...
add it to the eggs and well, beat some more!
cake batter anyone? ;-)
make sure to spray your pan...
Now for the egg whites.
Combine the whites with the cream of tarter and beat...
look at that peak!
It looks like a perfect wave~
Add the zest to the batter.
And fold the two together,
until well combined.
Pour into your pan,
and bake until nice and golden~
this cake is perfectly delicious like so...
but add a bit of powdered sugar with some fresh squeezed orange juice?!
