      One of the best- no, maybe the best- chiffon cakes I've ever made. Mine didn't have much of a lemon flavor, but the overall flavor was great. It was moist with a very tender crumb and an excellent soft crust. It keeps really well and was still great 5 days later. (Cake flour is a must for chiffon cakes--- use of anything else, especially anything whole wheat, will guarantee failure!) I only had half the amount of yogurt and substituted sour cream for the rest, and I did add some cream of tartar to the egg whites. I'll use a little more lemon next time, but also will play with other flavors. This would make a marvelous trifle or tiramisu base as well.

      This made a delicious finishing touch to a great Greek menu. Made this as written and while the cake was good as is it was outstanding topped with Lemon Dessert Sauce. Thanks Sharon for another wonderful recipe.
