This angel food cake has a completely different texture than the ones made from a mix. My family enjoys it all year long, either plain or topped with berries and whipped cream. —Lucile H. Proctor, Panguitch, Utah

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups egg whites (about 10)
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons cream of tartar

Nutritional Facts

1 serving (1 slice) equals 120 calories, trace fat (trace saturated fat), 0 cholesterol, 75 mg sodium, 26 g carbohydrate, trace fiber, 3 g protein.

Directions

  1. Place egg whites in a large bowl; let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Sift confectioners' sugar and flour together twice; set aside.
  2. Add the cream of tartar, extracts and salt to egg whites; beat on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar, about 2 tablespoons at a time, beating on high until stiff glossy peaks form and sugar is dissolved. Gradually fold in flour mixture, about 1/2 cup at a time.
  3. Gently spoon into an ungreased 10-in. tube pan. Cut through the batter with a knife to remove air pockets. Bake on the lowest oven rack at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until lightly browned and entire top appears dry. Immediately invert pan; cool completely, about 1 hour.
  4. Run a knife around side and center tube of pan. Remove cake to a serving plate. Yield: 16 servings.

MY REVIEW

"This is almost like the Angel Food Cake that my Great Aunt made. She used a bakers dozen eggs (which is 13 eggs). She also put the tube pan a 425 degree oven while making the batter. She also used cake flour not regular flour. She also sifted the cake flour and powder sugar 3 times together. Once mixed as stated, she put in the batter and baked the cake minutes (no longer no less). Always comes out fantastic. The preheating of the pan take down the baking time."
