Ooh-la-la...Angel Food Cake

I'm in a baking mood and wanted to share my favorite recipe for Angel Food Cake.  It was passed down to me from Hubby's Great-Grandma.  Enjoy!

Grandma Liz's Angel Food Cake
  • 1 c Softasilk (Cake Flour)
  • 1 c Sifted Powdered Sugar
  • 1 1/2 c Egg Whites
  • 1 1/2 tsp Cream of Tartar
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1 c Sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp Vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp Almond Flavoring (optional)
Sift flour & powdered sugar.  Measure into large mixing bowl: egg whites, cream of tartar & salt.  Beat with mixer until foamy.  Gradually add sugar 2 Tbsp at a time.  Beat until it holds stiff peaks.  Fold in flavorings.  Sift flour/powdered sugar mixture gradually over whites.  Fold in gently just until mixture disappears.  Pour batter in ungreased 10 inch tube pan.  Cut through batter with knife (around the circle).  Bake at 375 degrees for 35 minutes.  Invert on funnel & hang until cold.
