  • For the Vanilla Chiffon Cake:
    • All-purpose flour
    • Granulated sugar
    • Baking powder
    • Salt
    • Vegetable oil
    • Egg yolks
    • Water
    • Vanilla extract
    • Cream of tartar
    • Egg whites
  • For the Lemon Curd:
    • Fresh lemon juice
    • Lemon zest
    • Granulated sugar
    • Eggs
    • Unsalted butter


  1. Preheat your oven and prepare the baking pan.
  2. Sift together the dry ingredients for the chiffon cake.
  3. Make a well in the center and add the wet ingredients.
  4. Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form, then fold into the batter.
  5. Pour the batter into the pan and bake until golden and springy to the touch.
  6. For the lemon curd, whisk together lemon juice, zest, sugar, and eggs in a heatproof bowl.
  7. Cook over a double boiler until thickened, then remove from heat and stir in butter.
  8. Let both the cake and lemon curd cool completely before assembling.
  9. Once cooled, spread the lemon curd over the top of the chiffon cake.
  10. Serve slices of the cake with an extra dollop of lemon curd on the side.


  • Ensure all ingredients are at room temperature before starting the recipe for optimal results.
  • Use fresh lemon juice and zest for the lemon curd to achieve the best flavor.
  • Be careful not to overmix the chiffon cake batter, as this can result in a dense texture.
  • When folding the beaten egg whites into the cake batter, do so gently to maintain the volume and airiness.
  • Allow both the cake and lemon curd to cool completely before assembling to prevent the curd from melting the cake.
  • Feel free to adjust the sweetness of the lemon curd to suit your preference by adding more or less sugar.
