Easy Angel Food Cake Recipe

After just one taste, you'll agree this cake is heavenly! I like to make it for special occasions throughout the year.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 35 min. + cooling YIELD:16 servings


  • 1 cup cake flour
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar, divided
  • 2 cups egg whites (about 14)
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  • 1. Sift flour and 1/2 cup sugar together four times; set aside. In a bowl, combine egg whites, cream of tartar, extracts and salt; beat on high until soft peaks form but mixture is still moist and glossy. Add remaining sugar, 1/4 cup at a time, beating well after each addition. Sift flour mixture, a fourth at a time, over the egg white mixture; fold in gently, using about 15 strokes for each addition. Spoon batter into an ungreased 10-in. tube pan (pan will be very full). Bake at 375° for 35-40 minutes or until top crust is golden brown and cracks feel dry. Immediately invert cake in pan to cool completely. Loosen sides of cake from pan and remove. Yield: 16 servings.

"I used meringue powder in replacement of half the eggs, yes it is expensive, but it tastes quite a bit better."

"I agree with the other review(which I wish I would have read first), the texture is too moist and it is too eggy. Very disappointed!"
