Apple Chiffon cakes rely on well-beaten egg whites for lightness and height. Make sure bowls and beaters are clean, dry and free of grease so whites beat to maximum volume.
|1 cup Egg whites (7 large eggs)
2 Tb. Granulated sugar
1 1/4 cups Packed brown sugar
1/2 cup Apple juice
1/3 cup Vegetable oil
2 Large Yolks from eggs
2 tsp. Vanilla extract
2 cups All-purpose flour
1 Tb. Baking powder
1 tsp. Ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. Salt
1/4 tsp. Ground nutmeg
1/8 tsp. Ground cloves
3 medium McIntosh Apples peeled and shredded (2 cups)
1 jar Caramel sauce

Baking Time ~
Pan Type ~ 10 inch tube pan
Beat egg whites in a large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until frothy.
Gradually increase mixer speed to high while adding granulated sugar 1 tablespoon at a time.
Beat until whites greatly increase in volume and are thick and glossy; stiff peaks form when beaters are lifted.
In another large bowl with electric mixer on high; (no need to wash beaters) beat the brown sugar, apple juice, oil, egg yolks and vanilla extract until well blended. Gradually beat in flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg and cloves. Stir in fresh shredded apples.
Stir about 1/3 of egg whites into the apple mixture. Pour apple mixture into remaining whites and gently stir (fold) with a rubber spatula until no white streaks remain.
Pour Apple Chiffon Cake batter into tube pan and smooth top. Bake cake until pick inserted near center of cake comes out clean. Invert tube pan onto a wire rack or hang on the neck of a glass bottle. Let Chiffon Cake cool completely.
Run knife around edges and center tube; remove cake from pan. Loosen and remove bottom or peel off paper. Place Fresh Apple Chiffon Cake right side up onto serving plate. Drizzle cake with caramel sauce.
