A lady from our church on Vancouver Island brought this to potluck and everyone went crazy for it!!
It is very good and I love the crunchiness from the walnuts.

I wanted to use up about 2 cups of egg whites I had sitting in the fridge....this is a pic of the cake I made today!!

How to Make Maple Nut Angel Food Cake

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

    Sift together flour and sugar.Set aside.
    In a large bowl beat egg whites with salt and cream of tartar till soft peaks form. Add the vanilla and maple flavoring.
    Add the sugar a little at a time and beat till stiff.
    Gradually fold the flour/sugar into egg whites about a 1/4 at a time.
    Spread half of batter into tube pan and sprinkle with the chopped walnuts. Using a knife cut through to mix in nuts. Add the the rest of the batter.
    Bake about 35 mins. Cool inverted on a wire rack.
  • 2There is no need to use any frosting on this cake as it is great without it but I mixed up enough powdered sugar with some milk and about 1/2 tsp maple flavor extract to make a thin drizzle which I did put on the cake. I then sprinkle chopped walnuts over the top.
