Angel Food Cake

Jump to recipe!

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 definitely 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.

  2. 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!

    1. @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!

  3. This looks so yummy!! I will have to try it! My friend is coming over this weekend and we were looking for a nice light dessert to make! I have been interested in baking stuff lately so I will have to give this a try! Thank you for sharing!
