Hello all, I am so so so pleased to inform you that my cake fell out of the pan when I inverted it to cool. Why? I was wondering if anyone had any tips or tricks to making a chiffon cake, and why mine may have fallen out of the pan (no I did NOT butter/flour/ or grease the pan in any way) The cake had risen well, was lightly browned and the toothpick came out clean. I am wondering if I over or under-beat the egg whites? Perhaps I folded them into the batter too much or too little? Also, what recipe do you use for the cake portion of this cake? I have to make the dang thing for a dinner party tomorrow and its getting late (nail biting nail biting)
Thanks, Patricia

What kind of cake pan are you using?

Hi there Patricia, it might depend upon the pan you're using. I've tried it once in a tube pan and it turned out well. But I've also experienced such slip once, when I greased the pan beforehand (didn't know it then). Since then, I followed this recipe and the problem never occurred again:

Hope it helps!
