The Best Angel Food Cake in The World.
This is hands down our families favorite dessert. Enjoy!!
Ingredient list:
1 3/4 Cup Egg Whites
1 1/2 tsp Cream of Tarter
1/2 tsp Salt
1 Cup Cake flour (We like softasilk)
1 1/2 Cup powdered sugar
1 Cup Granulated sugar
Sift flour and powdered sugar together four times. (We did it only a couple times and it was still perfect.)
Using an electric mixer beat egg whites and salt together until foamy.
Add cream of tarter and continue beating until soft peaks are formed.
Then add granulated sugar and continue beating until very glossy.
The batter should form stiff peaks when the beaters are removed.
Using a wire whip fold in sifted dry ingredients, one third at a time.
Do NOT preheat oven. Do NOT grease the pan.
Bake cake in 10 inch tube pan for 35 minutes at 375 degrees.
The 35 min. includes the warm up time for the oven.
The cake should be browning when it is finished, when you touch the top, no batter should stick to your fingers.
When you take it out of the oven flip over on a towel and let it sit for 3 hours, or even over night, before you remove from the pan.
When removing, press on the top of the cake to unstick the top from the sides of the pan. Turn it on its side bang it gently while turning on a wooding cutting board. Then turn it over and slam it on the wood, top down to release your piece of heaven from the pan.
Serve with strawberries and whipped cream.

  1. I am so glad you posted this. Larry absolutely loves angel food cake. In fact it is his favorite, but he never gets home made. Just the yucky kind you buy. He will be so happy. I will try it first thing. Susan

  2. Meri, I just finished making this cake. It turned out beautiful. I am so excited and so is Larry! We are having a family dinner today for Landon's baby blessing (at Jody's). This is what I'm taking! Thanks so much for the recipe. Keep 'um coming!!
