Angel Food Cake

Desserts Recipe. Angel food cake is a classic dessert that has been around for generations. This light and fluffy cake is perfect for any occasion, from birthdays to holidays to dinner parties. What sets angel food cake apart from other cakes is its delicate texture, which is achieved by whipping egg whites to create a meringue.

In this blog, we will go over a simple and delicious angel food cake recipe that you can easily make at home.


  • 1 cupcake flour
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 12 large egg whites, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat your oven to 325 °F (163 °C).

  2. Sift the cake flour and 3/4 cup of granulated sugar together into a bowl. Set aside.

  3. In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites, cream of tartar, and salt together on low speed until they become frothy.

  4. Increase the speed to medium and continue to beat until soft peaks form.

  5. Slowly add the remaining 3/4 cup of granulated sugar, about 1 tablespoon at a time, while continuing to beat the egg whites.

  6. Beat the egg whites until they form stiff, glossy peaks.

  7. Add the vanilla extract to the egg whites and gently fold it in.

  8. Sprinkle 1/4 of the flour mixture over the egg whites and fold gently. Repeat this process three more times, until all the flour mixture has been incorporated.

  9. Spoon the batter into an ungreased angel food cake pan. Smooth the top with a spatula.

  10. Bake the cake for 40–45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

  11. Remove the cake from the oven and immediately invert the pan onto a cooling rack.

  12. Let the cake cool completely in the pan, which should take about 1–2 hours.

  13. Once the cake has cooled, run a knife along the edges of the pan to release the cake.

  14. Serve the angel food cake with your favorite toppings, such as whipped cream and fresh berries.


  • Make sure your egg whites are at room temperature before you begin. This will help them whip up to their full potential.
  • Use a clean, dry bowl and beaters to whip the egg whites. Any residual grease or moisture can prevent the egg whites from forming stiff peaks.
  • Be gentle when folding the flour mixture into the egg whites. You want to avoid deflating the egg whites as much as possible.
  • Don't grease your angel food cake pan. The cake needs to cling to the sides of the pan as it rises in the oven.
  • Inverting the cake pan after baking helps prevent the cake from collapsing as it cools.

In conclusion, making angel food cake at home is easy and fun. This recipe yields a light and fluffy cake that is perfect for any occasion. With a few simple ingredients and some careful technique, you can create a beautiful and delicious dessert that will impress your friends and family.
