Heavenly Angel Food Cake

This is a recipe from my neighbor and friend. Our family has had this twice at her house and we just love it! This is hands down, way better than the box angel food cake. -Kristin

2 1/2 c. sugar
1 1/2 c. flour
1/4 t. salt

2 1/2 c. egg whites (16-18 egg whites)
1 t. cream of tarter
1 t. vanilla
1 t. lemon juice

Optional Toppings:
cut up strawberries
cool whip
ice cream

  • Sift together the sugar, flour and salt and set aside.
  • In a very large bowl beat egg whites and cream of tarter at high speed until stiff peaks form.
  • Gradually fold in sugar mixture 1/8 c. at a time; folding until just blended after each addition.
  • Fold in lemon juice and vanilla.
  • Spoon into either an ungreased angel food cake pan or a 9x13 pan that is covered in aluminum foil with foil going 3 inches over sides of pan.
  • Bake at 375 for 35-45 minutes on the lowest rack in the oven. Make sure that a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  • Take out of oven and if baked in a 9x13 pan place upside down on a greased wire rack. If baked in an angel food cake pan place upside down.
