Ingredients

Add to Grocery List

12 large

How to Make ANGEL FOOD CAKE

Step-by-Step

  • 1Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • 2- Using an egg separator, separate one of the eggs into a small bowl or measuring cup.
    - Then transfer egg white to a large bowl.
    - Repeat with remaining eggs (this keeps any yolk from accidentally getting into all your whites).
    - Discard yolks.
    - Let egg whites warm to room temperature.
    - Add cream of tartar and salt to egg whites.
  • 3- Beat egg whites until frothy.
    - Gradually beat in superfine sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time, until stiff but glossy peaks form, about 5 to 7 minutes.
    - Beat in vanilla extract.
  • 4- Fold flour into egg whites in two additions, until incorporated.
    - Spoon batter into an ungreased 10-inch tube pan.

    *VARIATION for a CHOCOLATE and VANILLA MARBLED ANGEL FOOD CAKE*
    - Follow directions above through step 3.
    - Then remove half of the batter to a medium-size bowl.
    - Reduce flour to 3/4 cup.
    - Fold 1/2 cup of the flour into the batter in one of the bowls.
    - Sift 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder and the remaining 1/4 cup flour over the second half of the batter in the other bowl and fold in both.
    - Spoon batters alternately into a 10-inch tube pan.
    - Swirl together with a knife for a marbled effect.
    - Bake and cool as directed in step 5.
  • 5- Bake at 350 degrees F for 35 to 40 minutes, until top has risen very high and is lightly browned and cracked.
    - Remove from oven and immediately invert onto baking sheet or neck of bottle.
    - Cool completely.
