Angel Food Cake

Pillowy soft Angel Food Cake! This cake is perfection. Fluffy as a cloud and perfectly sweet. 
Prep Time: 25 mins
Cook Time: 35 mins
Total Time: 1 hr
Servings: 10 servings


  • 1 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup cake flour, sifted
  • 12 egg whites, room temp
  • 1/3 cup warm water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. 
  • In a food processor add the granulated sugar. Spin the sugar for 2 minutes until the sugar is very fine. 
  • Sift half of the superfine sugar with the salt and cake flour. Set the other half of superfine sugar aside. 
  • In a large bowl combine the egg whites, water, vanilla extract, and cream of tartar. Using a hand whisk, thoroughly mix the ingredients together for 2 minutes. 
  • Using hand beaters, beat the egg mixture on medium speed, slowly adding the remaining sugar, until soft/medium peaks form. 
  • Sift enough of the flour mixture over the top of the medium peaks mixture, just until the top has been lightly dusted. Using a spatula, fold the Fluor mixture in. Continue doing this (lightly dusting the top of the egg mixture with sifted flour mixture) and folding it in until all the flour mixture is incorporated. 
  • Pour the cake mixture into an uncreased tube pan. Bake for 35 minutes.
  • Cool upside down on cooling rack for 1 hour (cake still in pan) before removing the pan. Serve with fresh fruit and whipped cream.
