    Angel Food cake tastes better when Almond Extract is used instead of Vanilla Extract. Just a suggestion... And I'm guessing the Author intended to say UNGREASED pan, especially if she has made the cake before : ) - 9/5/08

    I make mine with the boxed angel food cake mix (dry only) and 1 can crushed pineapples. Nothing else. It's so delicious, especially with light Cool Whip. - 5/7/08

    Step 2 might say:Beat egg whites until soft peaks form.Reduce mixing speed and gradually add remaining 3/4 cups sugar,salt,and cream of tartar,several Tbsps. at a time.Add extract,lemon juice,and water,and beat until stiff,but not dry peaks form.Egg whites peak best before mixing w/other ingredients - 9/5/08

    Just repeating what has already been said....Do not Ever grease an Angel Food pan...the cake has to crawl up the side to rise.......If you do it will not rise and will just lay in the bottom.......I know this FOR SURE LOL - 9/5/08

    I used splenda in place of the sugar and I heard that you can also use sunsweetened applesauce to replace the sugar, it makes it very moist.. Great for anyone who is avoiding sugar either do to diabeties or dietary reasons. - 9/5/08
