Directions

  • 1 Move oven rack to lowest position. Heat oven to 375ºF.
  • 2 Mix powdered sugar and flour; set aside. Beat egg whites and cream of tartar in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until foamy. Beat in granulated sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time, on high speed, adding vanilla, almond extract and salt with the last addition of sugar. Continue beating until stiff and glossy meringue forms. Do not underbeat.
  • 3 Sprinkle sugar-flour mixture, 1/4 cup at a time, over meringue, folding in just until sugar-flour mixture disappears. Push batter into ungreased angel food cake pan (tube pan), 10x4 inches. Cut gently through batter with metal spatula.
  • 4 Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until cracks feel dry and top springs back when touched lightly. Immediately turn pan upside down onto heatproof funnel or bottle. Let hang about 2 hours or until cake is completely cool. Loosen side of cake with knife or long, metal spatula; remove from pan.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Whip it up! Egg whites whip best when they’re at room temperature; be sure to pull them from the refrigerator an hour or so before you make the cake.

Use an egg separator to separate eggs quickly. Place egg separator over a small bowl, and crack an egg into it. The white slips through the slots into the bowl, leaving the yolk behind.
