This prize-winning Chocolate Chiffon Cake is for chocolate lovers and anyone who wants to bake like a blue ribbon winner. It’s tender texture comes from using cake flour and oil, as well as whipped egg whites. You fold the egg whites into the cake batter as a final step before baking.
Recipe credit goes to Gwendolyn Swenson, who won her blue ribbon bragging rights with it at the Minnesota State Fair (2014). She won the “Grand Cake of the of Fair” top honor, as in, Best Overall Cake out of all the dozens entered. (Hint: the other Grand Cake we’ve shared with you is this citrus pound cake.)
In celebration of the Minnesota State Fair opening this week, the timing is perfect for making this prize-winning chocolate chiffon cake. The 2021 Great Minnesota Get-Together runs August 26-Sepember 6.
