Give me a simple, fresh slice of airy Angel Food Cake piled with fruit and I am in heaven. It is the perfect dessert to end a warm Summer night of grilling and eating outside with your family and friends!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup sugar, divided
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole-wheat pastry flour
  • 
1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cup egg whites (10 to12 eggs)
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Sift 3/4 cup sugar with all purpose flour, whole-wheat pastry flour and salt. Repeat 2 more times and set aside.
  3. Beat egg whites and cream of tartar with an electric mixer on medium-high until soft peaks form. Increase speed to high and gradually beat in the remaining 3/4 cup sugar and continue beating until stiff glossy peaks form.
  4. Gently fold almond extract and vanilla extract into the whites using a rubber spatula. Gently fold the flour mixture into the meringue 1/3 at a time. Spread into an ungreased Angel Food Cake pan with a removable bottom and bake until puffed, golden and springs back when lightly touched about 45 minutes.
  5. Cool the cake in the pan inverted over the neck of a bottle. To remove from the pan, run a knife (a boning knife is best) around all the edges and middle ring of cake. Invert onto a cake stand or serving platter.
