Angel Food Cake

Angel Food Cake


  • 1 ½ cups powdered sugar, sifted
  • 1 cup unbleached flour, sifted
  • 1 ½ cups egg whites (11-12 large eggs)
  • 1 ½ tsp. cream of tartar
  • 2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. almond extract
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • Fresh sliced berries, optional


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, combine powdered sugar and flour; set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, with mixer at high speed, beat egg whites, cream of tartar, vanilla, salt, and almond extract until well blended.
  4. Beating at high speed, gradually sprinkle in granulated sugar, 2 Tbsp. at a time. Beat just until sugar is dissolved and egg whites stand in stiff peaks. Do not scrape sides of bowl during beating.
  5. With rubber spatula, fold in flour mixture, about ¼ at a time, just until flour disappears.
  6. Pour mixture in unprepared 10’’ tube pan. With metal spatula, cut through batter to break up large air bubbles.
  7. Bake for 35 minutes. Remove from oven and set upside-down until cooled. Serve with fresh berries, if desired.
