Angel Food Cake

by in Mar 2007

Total Time: 30

Yield: about 8 slices

Ingredients:

  • 7 large egg whites
  • 3/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 3/4 cup sifted cake flour
  • Garnish: fresh berries

Instructions:

Heat oven to 375°. Using an electric mixer, beat egg whites, cream of tartar, and salt until the whites hold stiff peaks. With the mixer on, carefully add sugar, 1/4 cup at a time, until the mix becomes glossy and peaks still hold -- do not overmix. Beat in extracts. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold in flour. Spoon batter into an ungreased 9-inch (10-cup) tube pan. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until a cake tester inserted comes out clean. Invert the pan onto a cooling rack. Let cool completely, then slide a thin knife around outer and inner edges of the cake to dislodge it from the pan. Slice and garnish with berries.
