This is a must to kick off our summer! I came up with this recipe after making a batch of Our Ice Cream and had leftover egg whites. What a treat with fresh strawberries and homemade ice cream.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Beat egg whites (at room temperature) and salt until foamy on high speed in electric mixer.
  2. Add cream of tartar; beat until soft peaks form.
  3. Add 1 cup of sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time, beating until stiff peaks form.
  4. Sift remaining 1/2 cup sugar and cake flour together.
  5. Gently fold sugar/flour mixture into egg whites, scraping down the sides of the bowl, turning over in direction of figure "8".
  6. Lightly spoon mixture into an ungreased 10-inch tube pan.
  7. Bake at 375ºF for 30-35 minutes.
  8. Invert cake onto bottle to completely cool (generally takes 2 hours).
  9. Remove cake from pan by running a sharp knife around the sides and gently pressing on bottom to loosen.

Yummy!! Love angel food cake and this is great!! I beat my egg whites by hand, old-school, in my copper bowl and it turned out great and gave me some good exercise!!! I left out the cream of tartar because I had the copper. Thanks for the recipe!!
