Angel Food Cake

Angel food cake is one of the most versatile desserts. It pairs perfectly with fresh fruit and/or whipped cream.
FOOD FACT: Properly whipped egg whites and two kinds of sugar make a high-rising cake that’s light and fluffy. Gentle folding keeps air in the whites. The trick to folding is to gently combine the dry ingredients with the egg whites while retaining as much of the aerated volume as possible. Sprinkling the dry ingredients over the whipped whites, rather than dumping them on top, keeps the flour mixture from clumping and deflating the whites.

  • cups sifted flour
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 12 large egg whites (must be at room temperature)
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon real vanilla extract
  • 1 cups sifted sugar


  • Sift the flour, add the sugar, and then sift them together four times. Combine the egg whites, salt, cream of tartar, and vanilla in a large bowl. Whip with a whisk until soft peaks form. Add the remaining sugar in four additions. Sift in the flour mixture in four additions, folding in with a large spoon each time. Pour the batter into an ungreased 10-inch tube pan. Bake at 375°F for 35 to 40 minutes. Cool completely before removing from the pan or cutting.
