    Charlotte J's Note:

    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!

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      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.
    2. 2
    3. 3
      I always use a two piece angelfood cake pan.
    4. 4
      Heat oven to 375°.
    5. 5
      Sift the cake flour and 3/4 cup + 2 Tbsp sugar; set aside.
    6. 6
      Combine the extracts in a small bowl; set aside.
    7. 7
      Beat egg whites, cream of tartar and salt until it forms peaks.
    8. 8
      Add the other 3/4 cup of sugar slowly, then beat on high until stiff peaks form.
    9. 9
      If you have a mixing guard for your mixer bowl now would be a good time to attach it.
    10. 10
      Beating on LOW, add flour mixture and extracts slowly.
    11. 11
      Make sure you fold in the sides and bottom of your mixing bowl.
    12. 12
      (You can fold in flour mixture by hand but this way is faster.) Spoon into an angel food cake pan.
    13. 13
      Move a knife through batter to remove air pockets.
    14. 14
      Bake 30-35 minutes or until top springs back when touched lightly with finger.
    15. 15
      Invert pan onto a tin funnel to cool completely.
    16. 16
      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.
    17. 17
      Then firmly spank the sides of your pan.
    18. 18
      You could use a knife but this sometime tears the sides of the cake.
    19. 19
      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 the pan insert.
    20. 20
      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.
    21. 21
      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).

      Charlotte, this is a wonderful cake!! Took it to work for a special person's birthday, it was a huge hit. Filled the tunnel with Peaches and whipped cream, iced it with whipped cream and placed some peach slices around the top. Thanks for sharing a great recipe!!

      This is definitely a great angel food. I only had five egg whites so made half a recipe and baked it in a loaf pan.
