The Magic of Angel Food Cake

How to Make Angel Food Cake

Prepare the Batter:

Separate cold eggs. Bring whites to room temperature, grind sugar with salt, whisk flour with most of the powdered sugar, and gradually add reserved sugar to the beaten egg whites until mixed thoroughly.

Prepare the Batter:

Beat egg whites until soft peaks form (6-7 mins); add vanilla, lemon juice, and almond extract. Fold flour mixture into egg white mixture in 3-4 additions using a rubber spatula.

Pour into tube pan, bake for 40-45 mins until toothpick comes out clean. A few cracks are okay; check after 40 mins.

Cool the cake upside down on a rack for 1-2 hours before removing from the pan. Unmold the cake by running a knife along the pan's inner edge, place it on a platter, and serve with lemon curd and fresh fruit.
