Banana Chiffon Cake

Serves: 12

Preparation Time: 1 hour 15 minutes

Equipment: 3-quart stainless Mixing Bowl, Electric Mixer, 5-quart stainless Mixing Bowl, 6-quart (6 L) Stockpot, 4 ½ Dutch oven cover.

  • 2 cups cake flour
  • 1½ cups sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup (120 ml) canola oil
  • 1½ cups (360 ml) egg substitute (or 1 whole egg)
  • ¾ cup (180 ml) water
  • 1 ripe banana, mashed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 6 egg whites
  • ½ teaspoon cream of tartar


  • Powdered sugar
  • Water
  • Bananas, sliced

In the 3-quart Mixing Bowl, sift together cake flour, baking powder and salt. Add oil, egg substitute, and water. Mix well with electric mixer. Add banana and vanilla, beat well.

In the 5-quart Mixing Bowl, whip egg whites and cream of tartar to form airy stiff peaks.

In the 6-quart Stockpot, make a tube pan by placing a tall glass inverted into the center of the pan. Spray the pan and glass with a cooking spray. Pour the cake batter around the glass, cover with 4 ½-quart Dutch oven cover. Place 6-quart on cold burner, turn to medium heat for 5 minutes then reduce heat to low and bake cake on top of the stove for 55 minutes. Cake is done when a toothpick is inserted and removed cleanly.

Remove from heat, allow to cool, 30-40 minutes. Run a knife around edges and center glass, invert pan onto plate.

Glaze with thin icing of powdered sugar and water. Top with sliced bananas.
