For the first time today I tried making angel food cake. Its pretty simple compared to all the complicated ones that I have done and whats the best thing is that it does not use any oil :)
3/4 cup egg whites ( I used 5 eggs)
1/2 cup + 2 tbsp flour
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 tsp vanilla esence
1/4 tsp almond essence
1 tsp Lemon juice
Separate the egg whites in a clean bowl. In a another bowl sift the flour with half of the sugar. Set aside.
Beat the egg whites till frothy. Add the cream of tartar, salt and beat. Gradually add the lemon juice and sugar gradually and beat till peaks form and it looks glossy. Do not overbeat. Finally add the flavorings.
Slowly stir in the flour. Do not overmix.
I made mine in 2 4in angel food pan and 6 cupcakes
Bake at 350 degrees for about 40 min and test with wooden skewer for doneness. Turn it upside down and let it cool.
