I have a good orange chiffon recipe, Im sure you could substitute with the flavor because its just a bit of OJ & orange zest.
Let me know if you dont get any other recipies and I will PM or email it to you.

Chiffon cakes are in the same family as angel food cakes - lots of beaten egg whites.

Here are some recipes:

Oh Nichi, orange chiffon was one of my favorites years ago, Could you please pm the recipe to me as well if you have time?

But, aren't all chiffon cakes baked in a tube pan like angel food cake? How would that work for say a wedding cake?

I just sent you the recipe ShirleyW. Let me know if any of the instructions dont make sense, I usually typed them at some crazy hour after work and school so sometimes I was a little loopy.

I suppose you could use a tube pan but we just baked it a reg pan, torted and iced it. One of my class mates made cupcakes from this recipe as well substituting different flavors, I think he did madarin orange or something like that. ~super good.

Just a word of caution - chiffon cakes are less strong than butter cakes and genoise cakes - be sure to use sturdy supports when stacking.

I love chiffon cake, it is what I use when I want a white cake. It can be flavored so many ways once you find a basic recipe you like. Be sure to use good support if you are stacking it is a very soft cake

i normally use dowels for stacked cakes. this will be a three tier stacked, probably a 14, 10, and 6. is there a special way i should do this for enough support?

Hi, did nichi reply? I wanted to ask if she could kindly share her recipe too. But looks like she hasn't posted since 2007. :(

just a tip, chiffon cakes refrigerate well and freezes well, which makes them easier to torte and assemble when cold and you can even carve them that way (i've done it many times), also since they are oil based they even taste great right out of the fridge.  

 

The basic recipe I like to use is the "Orange glow chiffon" cake from the Cake Bible, I usually substitute the Orange juice and the zest as follows and it turns out fine as long as same amount are substituted (All ingredients including the 1 tsp pf vanilla stays the same.)

 

variations that i've tried so far: (instead of Orange juice and zest)

-Vanilla: 1 tblsp vanilla bean paste + 6.25 oz water (Vanilla bean paste darkens cake, but taste is amazing)

-Almond: 2 tsp almond extract + 6.25 oz almond milk (Tasted like a wedding cake)

-Cotton Candy: 2-3 tsp cotton candy flavor (LorAnn Oils) + 6.25 oz Orange juice (I kept the OJ here and it worked fine, this tastes unbelievable like real cotton candy, perfect for kids birthday, a simple brightly coloured vanilla SMBC was perfect with this.

-Strawberry: 2 tsp strawberry flavor (LorAnn Oils) + 6.25 oz strawberry puree (Strained well) (This was my favourite variation so far, with a simple vanilla SMBC it tasted like strawberry and vanilla ice cream)

 

so far that's all I've tried, I usually make the chiffon cakes when someone wants a light fluffy cake and anytime I make a mousse type filling (like chocolate mousse cake)

There was a chiffon cake thread a few months ago.I posted my recipe there. You could make it as the recipe and then make a orange flavoured syrup and spritz the cake lightly when you torte.

I use this recipe for all my wedding cakes.
