- Chiffon Cake-



Invented in 1927 by a Californian underwriter who became a caterer, Harry Baker, this airy cake is as tender as one may wish and has no cream or butter. It delights many a sweet tooth, especially in Japan and in the United States. The US even created a national day for it, the Lemon Chiffon Cake, on the 29th of March.
