Angel Food Cake

My grandmother used to make angel food cake all the time. It was sooooo good! I have very fond memories of that cake. So when the kids and I were invited to have Mother's Day dinner with some friends I immediately thought of making this cake to bring. I just hope it turns out as good as my grandmother's did!!

Angel Food Cake
  • 1 1/4 cups cake flour
  • 1 3/4 cups white sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups egg whites
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Beat egg whites until they form stiff peaks, and then add cream of tartar, vanilla extract.
  2. Sift together flour, sugar, and salt. Repeat five times.
  3. Gently combine the egg whites with the dry ingredients, and then pour into an ungreased 10 inch tube pan.
  4. Place cake pan in a cold oven. Turn the oven on; set it to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Cook for about one hour, or until cake is golden brown.
  5. Invert cake, and allow it to cool in the pan. When thoroughly cooled, remove from pan.

I'm wondering why it is named as Angel Food Cake. Might be because of the cake's color or it tastes so great and you'll feel like you're in heaven just like an angel :P
