Chantilly Cake Recipe

Chantilly Cake is a delicious lemon cake. The combination of lemon frosting and whipped cream makes it very luscious. I particularly love to make cakes and our family has a long history of loving lemon cakes. We have some members of our family that don’t like nuts in their desserts and I think you could make this cake without the pistachios. Personally I like the crunch.

Ingredients for Chantilly Cake

  • 1 package Lemon Velvet Lemon cake mix
  • 1 package Lemon Velvet frosting mix
  • 2 cups Whipping Cream
  • ½ cup Seedless Green Grapes, chopped
  • ½ cup Pistachio Nuts

Method for Chantilly Cake

Bake cake in 9-inch layers as per directions on package.
In small mixer bowl, combine frosting mix and cream. Chill. Whip chilled frosting mixture on medium speed until stiff.
Remove 1 cup of frosting mixture, fold in grapes and nuts. Spread between cooled cake layers. Spread remaining frosting on sides and top.
Refrigerate at least 2 hours.
If desired, garnish top of cake with a ring of chopped pistachios; arrange frosted green grapes around base of cake.

To Frost Grapes:

Wash and dry small bunches of grapes. Brush slightly beaten egg white over grapes. Dip in granulated sugar and dry on rack.

Note:

You can make your own frosting rather than buying a mix.
