Angel Food Cake
Feathery light and deliciously sweet, angel food
cake is one of those treats that can stand on its own. It's even better when covered
with fresh berries or drizzled with chocolate syrup. Enjoy!
Your Host, Brad
1 1/2 cups sifted cake flour
12 egg whites
1 1/4 tsp cream of tartar
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp almond extract
1 1/3 cups sugar
For this recipe, you really need to sift the flour several
times for a truly light, fluffy cake. Set the flour aside.
Beat egg whites and
next 4 ingredients at high speed with an electric mixer until soft peaks form; this will
take about 4 to 5 minutes. Gradually add sugar, 1/3 cup
at a time, beating
until blended after each addition. Fold in flour. Pour batter into an
ungreased 10-inch tube pan.
Bake at 375° for 35 minutes. Invert pan on a wire rack,
and let stand about 1 hour or until cake is completely cool. Run a knife around cake
to loosen edges.
