Easter Orange Chiffon Cake with Meringue Topping

It’s nearly midnight, 3 minutes until Easter Sunday and I’m attempting to put my first recipe up on the blog. I have to be honest – I’ve spent too much time playing with the layout! (But… ooohh shiney!!)

Anyways – the family got together on Good Friday for lunch and I made a cake. Now when it comes to family occasions I have to follow some pretty strict dietary restrictions depending on who is going to be there. This time it was dairy and nut free. I wanted a cake and I wanted a topping, but buttercream and cream cheese were out of the question. Something that was in keeping with Easter. Eggs. Eggs… What to do… What to do….

Bake it with meringue on top of course!
