Triple Lemon Chiffon Loaf Cake

by Holly on March 21, 2009

The Cake Slice Bakers this month made a Triple Lemon Chiffon Cake.  This cake is easy to put together, goes together fairly quickly and is absolutely light, lemony and delicious.  In fact, if you like Lemonheads candy (which I LOVE) then you would be completely delighted with this cake.  I got that distinct level of tart and tangy with just enough sweet.  It was awesome.  The cake itself has a beautiful yellow tone to it and is light and slightly springy.  The lemon curd layered between the layers of cake is tangy and smooth and the whipped lemon cream frosting is super simple to make and is the perfect light compliment to the whole thing.  I just added some bright yellow sugar sprinkles on top for an extra burst of color and a little sugary crunch.
I really have nothing bad to say about this cake, well, except for the fact that I halved the recipe since I didn’t have anywhere to take the cake this time.  I guess the only con is that there isn’t more.  To make the lemon loaf cake like I did, I just made a half batch of everything and then baked the cake in one 9×13-inch pan.  
Seriously, if you like lemon, just make this cake!
Incidentally, if you do decide to make this cake, someone mentioned recently that March 29th is National Lemon Chiffon Day – so, there you go!

I love your loaf cake! I seriously have to get a square pan asap! Someone else made little square lemon cakes and they were so cute! I love the last photo of the sliced cake. That sold me on the “…I must get a square pan soon.”

Great job on your cake and it looks lovely. I too liked the tartness of the curd, just give me anything with lemon.

Another Lemonhead here!
I liked that you made your cake into a loaf shape, nice straight edges. Will remember not to use my round pans next time.

I love the rectangular cake. It looks so light and airy. Mine came out lumpy….!!! Ah, well, the lemon flavor was wonderful. And your cake is too.

So, where do you find Lemon Curd? This sounds absolutely delish! I’m in such a lemon mood lately…see my blog soon I made a coconut lemon loaf that was pretty good. Also, how do you bookmark to save the recipe for later??? I sound so un-computersavvy…sorry!
