Angel Food Cake

Added by: on Apr 19th, 2011
Angel food cake, which is sponge cake made only with egg whites (no yolks), must be baked in an ungreased tube pan. It can be made with a handheld mixer, but a stand mixer makes it easier.

Directions:

Angel Food Cake

1

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Beat the egg whites and the cream of tartar (if using) with a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment on medium-high speed for about 3 minutes or with a handheld mixer on high speed for about 8 minutes, or until medium peaks form. Add the sugar in a steady stream and beat for about 2 minutes more in a stand mixer or 5 minutes more with a handheld mixer, or until medium to stiff peaks form. Don’t overdo it-it’s better to underbeat the egg whites slightly than to overbeat them.

2

Sprinkle the lemon juice over the egg white mixture and sift over the flour. Alternate between adding flour-about one-fourth at a time-and folding until the flour is no longer visible.

3

Carefully transfer the batter to the ungreased tube pan. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, until a paring knife or skewer comes out clean and the top of the cake feels firm and springs back to the touch.

Turn the tube pan upside down and set over the neck of a bottle to cool for 45 minutes. To remove the cake from the tube pan, roll it on its side and slide a knife or small spatula around the inside of the tube pan against the outside wall and around the tube in the middle.

This rich, deeply flavored cake can be frosted with chocolate frosting, such as buttercream or whipped ganache, to reinforce the chocolate effect, or a contrasting frosting, such as a kirsch-flavored buttercream, white chocolate mousse, white chocolate whipped ganache, or mousseline, to balance the chocolate.
