Hi Cooking USA, in order to successfully bake this cake in a convection oven you need to reduce the temperature, not just the baking time. Please refer to your oven manual to convert the time and temperature accordingly for the best results.Sue Stetzel - Online Community Manager, Taste of Home
This was the first "from scratch" angel food cake recipe that I ever tried and it turned out so well, that it quickly became a family favorite! I've made it time and time again, and it always turns out moist and delicious. I like to add a Tbl. of minced fresh peppermint to the batter for a nice change of pace.
I made this cake for my dad on father's day. He loved the batter, proclaiming that I was making French silk pie. However, the cake turned out dry. I think the cooking time is way too long. I use the "convection bake" setting on my oven, which normally shortens the time. However, I shortened this recipe by ten minutes, and the cake was still way overdone.
