Angel Food Cake Recipe:


1 cup sifted cake flour, 1 1/2 cups sugar (Divided) 

1/4 teaspoon salt, 1 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar, 1 1/2 cups (12) egg whites 

1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla 

Sift flour with 3/4 cup sugar 2 times; set aside. Beat egg whites with cream of tartar, salt, and vanilla until stiff enough to form soft peaks but still moist and glossy. Add remaining 3/4 cup sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time, continuing to beat until egg whites hold stiff peaks. Sift about 1/4 of the flour mixture over egg whites; fold in. Repeat, fold in remaining flour by fourths. 

Bake in ungreased 10-inch angel food cake pan at 350 for 35-40 minutes or until done. Invert cake in pan; cool.
