This strawberry chiffon cake is not only quite healthy but very yummy!
It is probably one of my favorite cake recipes because of it's very fluffy texture, and melt-in-the-mouthiness!
Chiffon cake is known for it's use of many eggs and using no butter. Its lovely by itself and with a whipped cream and strawberry filling which doesn't make it as dry, and it is very easy to make. This is a tasty cake, providing you like strawberries!
