Angel Food Cake from Scratch

Angel Food Cake from Scratch

Sift 3 times:
1 cup cake flour 1 ½ cups powdered sugar1 ½ cups egg whites – room temperature

¼ teaspoon salt
1 ½ teaspoons cream of tarter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla flavoring
1 teaspoon almond flavoring
With an electric mixer, beat the egg whites on high speed till frothy. Add salt and cream of tartar. Continue beating till holds a point. Add gradually, 1 cup granulated sugar and flavoring. Remove from beater.

Fold in very gently the flour and powdered sugar mixture. I use a rubber scraper. Pour in tube pan or angel food loaf pan. Bake 375 degrees for 40 minutes.

Be sure all pieces used have been washed (soda is good) so no grease is around. I don’t use the pan that I use for Angel Food Cake for anything else.

The 1 ½ cups of egg whites whites is usually 1 dozen eggs. I surely hope you have a good cake.
