Tuesdays with Dorie : Nectarine Chiffon Cake

Welcome to Tuesdays with Dorie, where a hundred or so bloggers bake through the book Baking with Julia! This week, we've made the Nectarine Chiffon Cake and boy is it a delight. This versatile cake can be served for brunch or as dessert for any meal! You can also sub out different fruits and omit the streusel layer if you're short on time or would like more of a non-brunchy type cake. I used peaches because my nectarines weren't ripe and I also didn't include the streusel. But any ole way, it'd be great. The most satisfying aspect of this cake is the beautiful pattern that is created on the top of the cake (it appears complicated but it is the easiest thing in the world) and the fluffy batter of whipped egg whites, is always just so beautiful and decadent looking. Give it a try!

You can find the recipe on the host sites by visiting the challenge website!!

Happy Tuesday!

  4. The top of the cake does look gorgeous, doesn't it? We included the streusel and loved it. I want to experiment with chiffon cake a little more, though, since I'd never made one before.

  8. Yeah this was great! The crusty bits were ridiculously rich and flavorful. Combined with the natural crispiness of a crust, it was quite an experience.

    A+!
