Angel Food Cake Recipe 2011-04-07 13:16:01

Ingredients

  1. 1 cup cake flour (spooned and leveled)
  2. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  3. 12 large egg whites, room temperature
  4. 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  5. 1 1/4 cups sugar
  6. 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place flour and salt in a sieve set over a bowl; sift into bowl, and set aside.
  3. With a mixer, beat egg whites on medium high until foamy, about 1 minute. Add cream of tartar; beat until soft peaks form. Continue to beat, gradually adding sugar; beat until stiff peaks form (see below), about 2 minutes. Add vanilla; beat to combine.
  4. Gently transfer egg white mixture to a large, wide bowl. In four batches, using the sieve again, sift flour mixture over egg-white mixture. While turning the bowl, use a rubber spatula to fold in the mixture by cutting down the center and coming up the sides.
  5. Gently spoon batter into an ungreased angel-food cake pan with a removable bottom; smooth top. Cut a knife or small spatula through batter to release air bubbles. Bake until cake is golden and springs back when lightly pressed, 35 to 40 minutes.
  6. Invert pan; let cool in pan, 1 hour. Run a knife around the inside of the pan and around the tube to release cake, and unmold. Use knife to release cake from bottom of pan, and remove.

Serves 8.
