A basic angel food cake becomes a heavenly indulgence thanks to a hint of orange flavor swirled into every bite. The orange color makes slices of the cake look so pretty when arranged on individual dessert plates.—Lauren Osborne, Holtwood, Pennsylvania

Ingredients

  • 12 egg whites
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1-3/4 cups sugar, divided
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract

Nutritional Facts

1 slice equals 130 calories, trace fat (trace saturated fat), 0 cholesterol, 116 mg sodium, 28 g carbohydrate, trace fiber, 4 g protein. Diabetic Exchange: 2 starch.

Directions

  1. Place egg whites in a large bowl; let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Sift flour and 3/4 cup sugar together twice; set aside.
  2. Add the cream of tartar, salt and almond and vanilla extracts to egg whites; beat on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually add remaining 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 half of batter into an ungreased 10-in. tube pan. To the remaining batter, stir in the orange peel, orange extract and food colorings if desired. Gently spoon orange batter over white batter. Cut through both layers with a knife to swirl the orange and remove air pockets.
  4. Bake on the lowest oven rack at 375° for 30-35 minutes or until lightly browned and entire top appears dry. Immediately invert pan; cool completely, about 1 hour.
  5. Run a knife around side and center tube of pan. Remove cake to a serving plate. Yield: 16 servings.

I made this for Easter, but I beat 6 of the egg yolks and added the same amount of egg whites (as used in the original recipe.) looks like a flower

This cake is wonderful! Since it's just my husband and me, I cut the recipe in half and made it in a foil-lined 9x5-inch loaf pan. The cake was so easy to prepare, and baked up moist and delicious. I will definitely be making this again!

Aleece, I'll take your recommendation and add this to the list of cakes to make for my mom's birthday in two weeks. I'll admit, I've never made an angel food cake from scratch - but it doesn't look much different from the chiffon cakes I'm always making. Hauke

OMG- delicious! My mom made this for Easter and the recipe is a keeper. It doesn't need any topping or sauce. It rose up beautifully, the color was nice with the top slightly carmelized, and the flavor was to die for. Can't wait to make it at my house!
