How to Make Angel food cake


  • 1To prepare topping, combine berries and sugar in a medium bowl. Cover and refrigerate until serving time. Combine sour cream, honey, and orange juice concentrate in a small bowl. Cover and refrigerate until serving time.
  • 2Preheat over to 350 degrees.
  • 3To prepare cake, sift together flour with 3/4 cup sugar. Sift again and set aside.
  • 4In a large non plastic bowl, beat egg whites until foamy using an electric mixer on medium speed (about 45 seconds) Add cream of tartar and salt.
  • 5Beat again on medium speed until soft peaks form when beater is slowly raised (about 1 1/2 minutes) Gradually beat in remaining sugar, 1/4 cup at a time. Turn Beater to high speed. Beat until egg whites are glossy and stiff peaks form (about 1 1/2 minutes)
  • 6Sprinkle vanilla and almond extract over egg whites. Sift flour mixture, 1/4 cup at a time, over egg whites. Gently fold in each addition of flour using a rubber spatula.
  • 7Pour batter into an ungreased 9 or 10" angel food tube pan. Using a knife, cut through batter to remove large air pockets. Smooth top.
  • 8Bake for 40-45 minutes, until cake is golden brown and top springs back when slightly touched.
  • 9Invert cake pan onto the neck of a bottle and let hang to cool, about 1 1/2 hours.
  • 10Run a knife along inside edge of pan and around tube to loosen cake. Invert onto a serving plate. Top each slice of cake with 2 tbsp berries. Drizzle with 1 tbsp orange cream sauce. Serve immediately.
