Lady Praline Chiffon Cake: Baked Sunday Mornings

This months "Baked" challenge is this lovely Lady Praline Chiffon Cake.  Somewhat like an angel food cake but since it is made with oil it has more substance to it.  It is very light, moist and delicious.  This recipe called for pecan liquor which I could not find anywhere around here so I used Amaretto in it's place.  It only called for a tablespoon but I think I would add another tablespoon because it was almost undetectable.  It had a very nice hint of orange flavor from the orange zest. 

Maybe it is my uncontrollable sweet tooth kicking in, but I think this cake would have been really good with some kind of glaze on it.  The recipe said to just dust it with powdered sugar...which I did, but to me it needed something more. 
I probably should have put some peaches with it like Susan did....that looked really nice!

Anyway.....I liked it, it was a good chiffon cake and very easy to make with a delightful texture that would be sure to please.
Please check out what the other "Baked" bakers did here.  We have a very talented group.
Until next time...


  1. Oooooh, your powdered sugar stencil is simply fabulous! So incredibly gorgeous!

  2. Chelly, what beautiful decoration - and nice photos! Great job!

  3. Just beautiful! I totally agree - I would have added a second Tablespoon of liqueur. And this cake would be great with a chocolate and/or fruit sauce - in a trifle, too!

  4. That is so PRETTY! Looks amazing! Will have to remember that trick to dress up plain cakes!

  5. Your stencil! What a great idea. Absolutely beautiful.
