Angel Food Cake
The Angel Food Cake is so described, as it is light and fluffy quite
like the world of angels.
This cake originated in the USA in the nineteenth century.
It is prepared using a special pan with a tube in the center. This tube is
necessary, as there is to be a hole in the center of the cake. It has to be
inverted while cooling so that the form can be retained.
Another peculiarity is the leavening method, where egg whites are whipped and
folded gently into the other ingredients.
The key ingredients are egg whites, cream of tartar, vanilla extract, almond
extract, fresh lemon juice apart from the flour and sugar.
