|EASY ANGEL FOOD CAKE|
1 1/2 c. egg whites
1 1/4 c. sifted cake flour
1 1/2 c. sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. cream of tartar
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. almond extract
In a large mixing bowl, put egg whites and allow to sit at room temperature for 15 minutes.
Sift flour with 3/4 cup sugar; sift 3 times and set aside.
Beat egg whites on medium speed with salt and cream of tartar. Gradually beat in remaining sugar, 3 tablespoons at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat at high speed until it eggs form soft peaks.
Turn speed to low and add almond and vanilla.
Sift in flour mixture 1/4 at a time, mixing at low speed for 3 seconds after each addition or until mixture is completely blended.
Using a rubber scraper, gently push batter into an ungreased 10" tube pan. Cut through batter twice with a knife to level center and remove any air pockets.
Bake on the lower rack in oven for 35 to 40 minutes at 375°F, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Let cool completely, about 2 hours. Invert tube pan over a bottle to cool.
