DIRECTIONS

  • For the Angel Cake:
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F
  • Sift the flour twice with 1/2 cup of the sugar.
  • With an electric mixer on high speed, beat the egg whites, cream of tartar and salt until soft peaks form when the mixer is removed from the batter.
  • Add half of the remaining sugar and beat for 1 minute. Add the remaining sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time, beating after each addition.
  • Stir in the vanilla.
  • Fold the flour and sugar mixture into the egg whites, 1/4 cup at a time, just until incorporated.
  • Put the batter in an ungreased 10" tube pan and bake until the cake is light golden brown and springy to the touch, about 1 hour. Invert the pan and let the cake cool completely before removing from the pan.
  • For the Summer Fruit Salad:
  • Mix fruit in a bowl.
  • Sprinkle with the orange juice.
  • For the Finest Raspberry Dessert Sauce:
  • Puree the berries in a blender with the lemon juice. Blend in the sugar by the tablespoonful, tasting after each addition, until the desired degree of sweetness is reached.
  • Strain through a fine strainer, pressing with a rubber spatula to release the juices.
  • Put it all together:
  • Place a slice of angel cake on each plate. (Store the leftover cake in an airtight container or freeze for longer storage.)
  • With a slotted spoon, place a portion of the Summer Fruit Salad on a corner of the cake slice and let it spill over the side.
  • Drizzle the raspberry sauce around the fruit salad.
