Glazed orange chiffon cake recipe

Recipe adapted from Glutino.

Serves 12



  • 3 cups Gluten-Free Pantry Old Fashioned Cake & Cookie Mix
  • 5 egg whites
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 3/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange rind


  • 2 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 3 tablespoons orange juice


  1. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. With a mixer on high speed, combine the egg whites and cream of tartar and mix until stiff white peaks form.
  3. In a large bowl, add the gluten-free mix, egg yolks, orange juice and rind and juice concentrate and beat all together for about a minute on a low speed.
  4. Use a spatula to scrape down the sides of the bowl and continue to beat for another few minutes. Gently fold the egg whites into the batter.
  5. Add the batter to an ungreased, 10-inch tube or Bundt pan.
  6. Place the cake in the oven and bake for 45-50 minutes, or until the top of the cake springs back when gently touched.
  7. Allow the cake to cool for about an hour. Once cooled, use a knife to work around the edge of the cake. Invert the cake onto a wire rack. Use a platter to cover the cake and flip it upright onto the platter.
  8. Meanwhile, mix the confectioners’ sugar and orange juice together for about a minute.
  9. Drizzle the glaze over the cake and allow it to stand for about 20 minutes before serving.

The citrus in this cake brings a ray of sunshine to dessert!
