Angel Food Cake

Many years ago, my husband’s Aunt gave me her Angel Food Cake recipe. I have baked it many times, and we always enjoy it.

This particular recipe takes a little work, but is definately well worth it. You can easily buy a box mix, that are actually very good too. As part of our Valentine Dinner, I served this cake with whipping cream and strawberry sauce.

Angel Food Cake
  1. Mix egg whites, cream of tartar and salt until soft peaks form. Gradually add 1⅓ cups sugar until stiff peaks form.
  2. Sift Softasilk and sugar several times to make them light. Gently fold into egg white mixture.
  3. Add vanilla and almond extract.
  4. Pour into a greaseless tube pan or Angel Food cake pan, cut around pan 2 times and drop once about 14 inches from counter (this step removes air bubbles)
  5. Move oven rack to lower position, bake at 325 degrees for 40 to 60 minutes or until golden brown. Cool upside down on a bottle.
Strawberry Sauce
  1. Made this just like I did the Blueberry Sauce
Whipping Cream

    What do you do with the egg yolks? About how many eggs does it take to get 1 1/2 cups of egg whites? Thanks!

    • CupcakeLady says:

      @Kari, I typically keep the yolks for scrambled eggs. And it depends on the size of your eggs, I usually use 8-10 egg whites.
      Thanks for visiting! Let me know if you have other questions. I’m happy to help!
