Groovy Chiffon Cake


PEACE. LOVE. AND GROOVY VIBES ONLY! This light, lemony chiffon cake recipe is full of bold flavors and colors and was developed to celebrate our 60th Anniversary.

A chiffon cake is a hybrid between a sponge cake and a butter cake. Unlike most sponges, chiffon cake does contain both baking powder and oil; however, like a sponge cake, chiffon cakes are built on a foundation of separated, whipped egg whites and yolks. Make this rainbow cake for all of your groovy-themed parties, Pride Month, and more.



  • 3 egg yolks
  • 15 grams castor sugar (4 teaspoons)
  • 30 grams oil (2 tablespoons)
  • 30 grams water (2 tablespoons) 
  • 1 teaspoon LorAnn Lemon Bakery Emulsion
  • 45 grams cake flour, sifted (1/3 cup)
  • 3-4 drops each LorAnn Liquid Gel Food Colors of choice - We used red, orange, yellow, and teal in this recipe to create a rainbow.


  • 3 egg whites 
  • 40 grams castor sugar (0.2 cup)
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar 


  1. Preheat oven to 284°F (140°C). Prepare a 6” cake pan with removable base and 5 baking cups (2"-3”).
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk egg yolks with sugar. Then add in oil, water, and lemon flavoring and mix well. Add in sifted cake flour and mix batter is smooth. 
  3. Divide cake batter into tie-dye themed colors (6 parts). Add respective gel food coloring and mix well.  
  4. In a large, grease-free bowl, whisk egg whites with cream of tartar till foamy. Add in castor sugar gradually and whisk till firm peaks are formed. 
  5. Divide meringue into 6 parts and gently fold into respective colored batter above.
