Orange Glow Chiffon Cake

A photo of a single slice would have been prettier. Oh well.

Chiffon cake is like a cross between angel food cake and normal butter cake, but it leans toward the angel food side. It's light and airy, because you whip a boatload of egg whites to stiff peaks. But moist and tender like butter cake, because it also has egg yolks and safflower oil. This particular chiffon cake is flavored with orange zest and fresh orange juice.

Even if you're full, you probably have room for this.
