I was really looking forward to trying this recipe because I have never whipped egg whites before. TheBaked Sunday morning dessert, Lady Praline Chiffon Cake, is like a angel food cake and a regular cake combined. The recipe is from the cookbook:Baked Explorationsby Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito. I strongly encourage you to purchase the cookbook, but you may also find the recipe onBaked Sunday Mornings.
I did make two changes to the recipe: I am not a big fan of nut flavored desserts, so instead of pecan extract, I used vanilla extract. I also forgot to purchase a orange for the recipe so the orange zest was accidentally left out of the recipe too.
: there’s an error in this recipe in the first printing of
Explorations. It says to fold in the orange zest with the egg yolk and
flour mixture. Then in the next paragraph it says to add the zest to the
egg whites. The correct instruction is to add the orange zest to the
yolk and flour mixture.
