Pineapple Chiffon Cake
egg whites (1 cup)
2 1/4
cups sifted cake flour
1 1/2
cups sugar
teaspoons baking powder
teaspoon salt
cup cooking oil
cup unsweetened pineapple juice
teaspoon cream of tartar
Pineapple-Buttercream Icing
Pineapple Daisies, * (optional)
  1. Allow egg whites and yolks to stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, in a large mixing bowl combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture. Add oil, egg yolks, and pineapple juice in that order. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed until combined. Beat on high speed for 5 minutes more or until batter is satin smooth.
  2. Thoroughly wash the beaters. In a very large mixing bowl beat egg whites and cream of tartar with an electric mixer on medium speed until stiff peaks form (tips stand straight). Pour batter in a thin stream over beaten egg whites; fold in gently. Pour into an ungreased 10-inch tube pan. Set pan on a baking sheet or pizza pan.
