Eureka Springs April B&B Newsletter
Finally, it seems that Spring is here. Trees are budding, grass is greening up and the weather is so nice after all the cold weather we’ve had. Now is the time to visit and enjoy all the great scenery and outdoor activities.
The Second Saturday Art Gallery Stroll is always a favorite way to see all the eclectic art in Eureka Springs. Springtime In The Ozarks and Carving In The Ozarks are also this month. The last weekend of the month will feature yard-and-yards of yard sales all over town. Everyone loves a bargain!
JeepFest is a new event in Holiday Island (only 5 miles away). Last year there were military and civilian customized Jeeps on display. If you are a Jeep lover, come see the display or bring your own to this free event.

LEMON CHIFFON CAKE
2 cups sifted cake flour
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (from about 4 lemons)
1/4 cup water
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 tablespoons lemon zest (from about 3 lemons)
6 eggs, separated
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
Confectioners’ sugar for serving
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Set aside a 10-inch ungreased tube cake pan.
In a large bowl, whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
Place the oil, lemon juice, water, vanilla and lemon zest in a large measuring cup. Stir in the egg yolks.
Make a well in the bowl of the flour mixture and pour the wet mixture in. Whisk until the two mixtures are just combined.
In a medium bowl, combine the egg whites and cream of tartar. Using an electric mixer, whip the whites until stiff. Fold into the cake batter until no more streaks of white appear. Pour the batter into the cake pan and bake in the oven until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean, about 45-50 minutes.
Remove the pan from the oven and invert to cool for 1 hour. If your pan does not have “legs,” invert the pan onto the neck of a wine bottle. Once cooled, use a thin spatula to loosen the sides of the cake from the pan. Gently pull the cake to separate it from the pan. Serve inverted or right-side up. Dust with confectioners’ sugar.
