Homemade Angel Food Cake
1 cup of Cake Flour
1 ½ cups of Granulated Sugar
¼ tsp. of Salt
1 ½ tsp. of Cream of Tartar
2 tsp. of Vanilla
12 Egg Whites, at room temperature
Preheat the oven to 325 to 350 depending on how hot your oven gets, mine is always set at 325.
In the large bowl whisk egg whites, salt and cream of tartar, whisk on medium speed until the eggs whites are foamy. Turn the speed up to high and start adding the sugar slowly and continue to mix until the egg whites have reached stiff peaks. Turn the mixer off and using a rubber spatula, fold in the flour a little at a time until it’s all combined, add your vanilla. Transfer batter into a tube-pan and run a knife threw it to remove any air-bubbles. Bake for about 45 to 60 minutes depending on your oven or until it springs back to the touch, the angel-cake will be looking a lite golden brown. Immediately run knife on the edge of the pan to loosen the cake, overturn the pan onto a plate large enough for the cake, Cool completely before removing from the pan. The pan doesn’t have to be a tube pan it can be two 8in. pans but remember this will rise high so a tube-pan is recommended.
