Description

This moist, soft and fluffy angel food cake is a perfect summer dessert. It’s light as air and is essentially fat-free!


Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups egg whites (from about 10 to 12 large eggs)
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp almond extract
  • 1 1/2 cups (300g) granulated sugar, divided
  • 1 cup (120g) cake flour

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F and set aside a 10″ ungreased tube pan.
  2. Sift together the cake flour with 1 cup of sugar. Set aside.
  3. Place the egg whites in a large mixing bowl, and whip on medium-high speed until frothy.
  4. Add the cream of tartar, salt, vanilla and almond extract. Continue to whip until soft peaks.
  5. In a very slow, steady stream, add 1/2 cup of the sugar, while continuing to whip until stiff peaks.
  6. Sift in the flour mixture, one third at a time, folding after each addition.
  7. Transfer the batter into an ungreased 10″ tube pan with removable bottom.
  8. Bake for 50-55 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  9. Cool cake upside-down, then remove from pan. Slice using a serrated knife.
