Welcome to my recipe blog! I started it when my brother, Mark, moved away and was in need of some recipes....or so I thought.... The goal is to post recipes that can be made quickly, easily, and inexpensively. If you have something to contribute, please let me know and I will be glad to add it!!

Angel Food Cake from Scratch

Angel Food from Scratch

Is a Labor of Love

Sift 3 times

1 cup cake flour 1 ½ cups powdered sugar

1 ½ cups egg whites – room temperature

¼ teaspoon salt

1 ½ teaspoons cream of tarter

1 cup granulated sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla flavoring

1 teaspoon almond flavoring

With an electric mixer, beat the egg whites on high speed till frothy. Add salt and cream of tartar. Continue beating till holds a point. Add gradually, 1 cup granulated sugar and flavoring. Remove from beater.

Fold in very gently the flour and powdered sugar mixture. I use a rubber scraper. Pour in tube pan or angel food loaf pan. Bake 375 degrees for 40 minutes.

Be sure all pieces used have been washed (soda is good) so no grease is around. I don’t use the pan that I use for Angel Food Cake for anything else.

The 1 ½ cups of egg whites whites is usually 1 dozen eggs. I surely hope you have a good cake. – Leona Glesler
