Number of Servings: 16


    1 cup cake flour (or learn to make cake flour here)
    3/4 cup + 2 tablespoons sugar
    12 large egg whites, room temperature
    1 1/2 teaspoons cream of tartar
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    3/4 cup sugar
    1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
    1/2 teaspoon almond extract

    *You’ll also need a two piece angel food cake pan.


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Separate your egg whites – eggs must be room temperature (and take care not to get any yoke mixed in with the egg whites). Sift the cake flour and 3/4 cup + 2 Tbsp sugar and set aside. Combine the extracts in a measuring cup and set aside. Beat egg whites, cream of tartar and salt until it forms peaks. Add the other 3/4 cup of sugar slowly, then beat on high until stiff peaks form. Switch mixer to low and slowly mix in flour mixture and extracts. Make sure to fold in sides and bottom of the mixing bowl. Spoon into a two piece angel food cake pan. Run a knife through batter to get out any air bubbles before baking.

Do not grease the pan. Bake 30-35 minutes, until it springs back when lightly touched. Place pan upside down to cool. When cool carefully cut around sides and bottom to get it out of pan.
