I'm showing here as a lemon chiffon with whipped cream piping finish and layered with lemon pie filling and drizzled lemon syrup over individual servings.
And yes... It is gluten-free! but no need to exclude those wheat-eaters , they'll love it too. We entertained friends tonight and my cake was enjoyed with complements!
- 1/2 cup white rice flour
- 1/2 cup millet flour
- 1/2 cup tapioca starch
- 1/4 cup arrowroot powder
- 1 tsp xanthan gum
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 3 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup oil (I like grapeseed)
- 3/4 cup cold water
- 1 tbsp lemon zest (leave out if wanting it plain)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 6 egg yolks
- 6 egg whites
- 1/2 tsp cream of tartar
- 3/4 cup sugar
- lemon pie filling (1 pkg)
- 1 1/2 cups whipping cream
- 1/4 cup white sugar (or to taste)
- 1 tbsp vanilla pudding powder
- 3/4 cup lemon juice (I use Real Lemon from concentrate)
- 2 cups white sugar
- Beat egg whites until foamy, add cream of tartar and 3/4 cup sugar and beat until peaks form. Set aside
- Beat egg yolks with 1/2 cup sugar until creamy
- Add water, oil and vanilla extract
- Sift together dry ingredients
- Add dry ingredients to liquids and mix until smooth.
- Then working quickly fold egg whites into batter
- Pile into a tube cake pan, smoothing top
- Bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees.
- Hang upside down to cool .. (cake may form a small valley in top in oven but don't worry about it. It hangs out while cooling)
- When cool loosen sides and let fall down on serving plate.
- Cut in half and fill with cooled, prepared lemon pie filling. Spread lemon pie filling over the top as well.
- Beat 1 1/2 cups whipping cream with 1/4 cup sugar and 1 tbsp vanilla pudding powder until stiff - cover sides and decorate over the top.
- Serve with ice-cream (if desired) and drizzle lemon syrup over top of each serving. (to make syrup bring 3/4 cup lemon juice and 2 cups white sugar to a full boil to where it foams up to fill the pot - cool - keep in fridge)
Note. the lemon syrup is also good mixed in hot water for a refreshing drink -- or a cold drink.
