  • About This Recipe

    “This is a MUST if you have never tried a homemade Angel Food Cake. I never liked Angel Food Cakes until the neighbor lady invited me over for coffee shortly after I was married. That was almost 15 years ago, and my children and husband always ask for this for special occasions. Thank you Artie, for being a wonderful friend and for the recipe!”


  • 1cupcake flour
  • 3/4 cupsugar
  • 2tablespoonssugar
  • 12largeegg whites, MUST be room temperature
  • 1 1/2 teaspoonscream of tartar
  • 1/4 teaspoonsalt
  • 3/4 cupsugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoonsvanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoonalmond extract
  • Directions

  • Note: For those not use to making angel food cakes Don’t get any yoke in the whites, if you do throw out and start over.I always separate the egg in a glass first.Then if no yoke pour into measuring container.
  • I always use a two piece angelfood cake pan.
  • Heat oven to 375°.
  • Sift the cake flour and 3/4 cup + 2 Tbsp sugar; set aside.
  • Combine the extracts in a small bowl; set aside.
  • Beat egg whites, cream of tartar and salt until it forms peaks.
  • Add the other 3/4 cup of sugar slowly, then beat on high until stiff peaks form.
  • If you have a mixing guard for your mixer bowl now would be a good time to attach it.
  • Beating on LOW, add flour mixture and extracts slowly.
  • Make sure you fold in the sides and bottom of your mixing bowl.
  • (You can fold in flour mixture by hand but this way is faster.) Spoon into an angel food cake pan.
  • Move a knife through batter to remove air pockets.
  • Bake 30-35 minutes or until top springs back when touched lightly with finger.
  • Invert pan onto a tin funnel to cool completely.
  • To remove the cake from your pan run a knife around the rim of the cake pan just to get the ‘crust’ away from the pan.
  • Then firmly spank the sides of your pan.
  • You could use a knife but this sometime tears the sides of the cake.
  • Invert onto your serve plate then take the knife to the now top which was the bottom of your pan and gently cut cake away from thepan insert.
  • No need to cut around the center tube as you just give the cake a gently but firm tap or downward shake on to the plate.
  • Or you can pick up plate while holding onto the pan insert with your thumbs and firmly strike the bottom of the plate onto a folded towel.(Just give it a slam down on the towel/table).
