My mom cut this recipe out from the Honolulu Star Bulletin in the early 70's. It was our family's absolute favorite cake - a moist, lemony chiffon that always came out perfect. Then she misplaced the recipe sometime in the 90's and I thought it was lost forever. In a bit of serendipity, my best friend from elementary school got my address a couple of months ago and we started corresponding. I mentioned the recipe to her (even she remembered the cake after all these years!) and lamented that I doubted I'd ever find it again. Well, guess what? My mom had given her mom the recipe when we were kids, and she still had it! I was so happy I could have hugged my friend - if she didn't live 2000 miles away! I'm posting this here so I'll never, ever lose it again.Note: Thanks to **Tinkerbell** for reminding me that the cake needs to cool upside down so it stays tall and fluffy!
