I have always loved Angel Food cake and Blueberries. So I thought I'd combine the two. You don't have to decorate the cake with blueberries but I thought it looked pretty :) Also note, I found the bottom of the cake stuck, so it might be advisable to cut a round of parchment and put it on the bottom to ensure the cake comes out smoothly.

How to Make Blueberry Angel Food Cake With Citrus Glaze

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 375'F
  2. FOR THE CAKE: Sift together 1/2 cup sugar and 1 cup flour.
  3. In a large bowl beat egg whites with a high speed mixer until foamy. Add cream of tartar and salt; beat until soft peaks form.
  4. Add 1 cup sugar, 2 tbsp. at a time, beating until stiff peaks form.
  5. Sift flour mixture over egg white mixture, 1/4 cup at a time; fold in. Fold in vanilla and blueberries.
