Baking soufflé cake with Jehane Benoit

The Story


Mme. Jehane Benoit is in the Take 30 studio with a cooking lesson in how to make a soufflé cake, also known as a chiffon cake.  It’s a special, versatile one for the holiday season, because it can become a bûche de noël, a black forest cake, or French pastry -- “It’s easy as pie to do and there’s no flour”. She and host Adrienne Clarkson talk about her special table centrepiece, an antique toy wood-burning stove like the one she used as a child.
