Angel Food Cake

User Rating 5 Star Rating (1 Review)


This is a classic angel food cake made with egg whites and cake flour, along with a little vanilla and sugar.

Cook Time: 1 hour, 5 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour, 5 minutes


  • 1 1/3 cups egg whites (takes approximately 10 large eggs)
  • 1 1/3 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar, put through sifter twice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup cake flour, sifted before measuring


Beat egg whites; add cream of tartar and salt when eggs are frothy. Continue beating until egg whites stand in peaks. Gradually beat in 1 cup of granulated sugar. Fold in vanilla. Sift the sifted and measured flour three more times; mix with remaining 1/2 cup of sugar. Fold flour mixture gently into batter until well incorporated.

Pour angel food cake batter into an ungreased 10-inch tube pan. Bake at 325° for 55 to 65 minutes. Remove from oven and invert pan (turn upside down, cake and all) until angel food cake is entirely cooled.

Makes one 10-inch Angel Food Cake.
