Although it doesn't puff up as much as other angel food cakes during baking, the refreshing minty flavor and festive red swirls raise this version about ordinary desserts!

Directions

  1. Let egg whites stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Sift flour and 3/4 cup sugar together twice; set aside. In a large bowl, beat egg whites, cream of tartar, extracts and salt on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in remaining sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time, on high until stiff glossy peaks form and sugar is dissolved. Gradually fold in flour mixture, 1/4 cup at a time. Divide batter in half; tint half with red food coloring.
  2. Alternately spoon plain and pink batters into an ungreased 10-in. tube pan. Cut through the batter with a knife to remove air pockets. Bake on the lowest rack at 350° for 30-40 minutes or until lightly browned and cracks feel dry. Immediately invert baking pan; cool completely.
  3. Run a knife around sides and center tube of pan. REmove cake to a serving plate. For glaze, combine the confectioners' sugar, milk extract and food coloring if desired. Drizzle over cake. Sprinkle with crushed candies. Yield: 12-16 servings.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 4, 2010

Since there wasn't a picture I wasn't sure what to expect. When the description says it doesn't puff up...believe it. I expected this to look like an angel food cake when in face in only raised about 2". Making a very skimpy looking dessert. Disappointing especially since it took 10 EGGS.
