Angel Food Cake


Angel food cake[1][2] is a light delightful dessert. Normally baked in a tube pan (ring tin).


  • 1 cup cake flour
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups egg whites (~12)
  • 1 1/2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Combine flour and powdered sugar. In a mixer combine egg whites and cream of tartar on medium until consistency is foamy. On high speed add in granulated sugar, 2 tbsp at a time until consistency is stiff and glossy. Finally add in salt, vanilla and almond extract. Slowly fold in 1/4 cup each time the flour-sugar mixture. Pour batter into tube pan, do not grease. Bake for ~33 minutes, or until top is springy. Let sit to cool upside down, where pan is facing up.
