Burnt-Sugar Chiffon Cake
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Bake: 45 min. + cooling
This cake has almost no taste except for eggs. I really did not like it and would not make it again. Frosting also tasted like butter than anything else.
This was a horrible cake. There is no taste, the frosting was way too soft. I have my grandmothers burnt sugar cake recipe which is far superior to this one. This recipe went in the garbage. The cake and frosting will soon follow.
This was a terrible recipe. There is little flavor to the cake, and the frosting was way too soft. My grandmother had a burnt sugar cake recipe that is far superior to this one. This recipe and cake and frosting went in the garbage. I will stick with my grandmothers recipe!
Made this yesterday. It wasn't as difficult as I thought it was going to be to make. The cake is incredible. The frosting was very thin and too sweet, even for me. So I added some cream I whipped up. It gave the icing some substance for spreading and took away a little bit of the sweet without changing the incredibly wonderful taste. Excellent recipe.
THE CAKE PART WAS GREAT. THE ICING DID NOT TURN OUT GOOD. TOO LIQUID. HAD TO ADD MORE CONF. SUGAR. I THINK THIS WAS BE GOOD WITHOUT ICING ALSO.
Some days I enjoy baking when it is a little more involved. This is one of those recipes. I don't like to ever substitute or change a recipe until I've made it once and can rate it as written. However, I was out of cake flour and substituted all purpose flour using directions I found on line. (remove 2 T flour for each cup). I think it came out great. I like the texture of a homemade sponge cake, and agree berries would taste yummy on it. It was a little too much frosting for me, but I can hardly consider that a "problem". Frankly, the reason I made this cake so quickly was because of the comments written before people even made it.
Delightfully light and airy cake.I added a tart lemon frosting and it was FABULOUS! Make it soon!
IT's A GREAT RECIPE!!!!!
This is a very light and flavorful sponge cake.It is beautiful to look at too! I would much rather slice it and put strawberries and whipped cream in between the layers!
