Angel Food CupcakesSubmitted by: COWBOYMAMA
6 egg whites
1/2 c. plus 2 tbsp. powdered sugar
1/2 c. flour
3/4 tsp. cream of tartar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. almond or coconut extract
1/8 tsp. salt
1/2 cup sugar
In a large bowl, beat egg whites until frothy. Add cream of tartar, extracts, and salt. Gradually add sugar until stiff peaks form, beating at high speed. Fold in flour mixture 1/4 c. at a time, being careful not to deflate the egg whites.
Gently spoon batter into a gallon size zipper bag. Cut off one corner. Lightly grease cupcake tins or use liners. Gently squeeze batter into cupcakes, until about 3/4 full. Place cupcake pans on sheet pans, to make it easier to get in and out of the oven. Bake in 350 oven for 15 minutes until golden brown. Let cool completely on cooling racks. Run knife around outside if not using liners.
These freeze nicely, too.
Number of Servings: 18
