Angel Food Cake RecipesUPLOAD A RECIPE

Unlike most cakes, angel food cake has no butter, shortening, or oil, just whipped egg whites, flour, sugar, and flavorings. The result is a tender, fluffy cake with 0 grams of fat and an unlimited supply of deliciousness. The most important factor in making a successful angel food cake is to keep fat out of the batter. That means throwing out any egg white that has just a dot of yolk in it. Also, never use grease, oil or nonstick spray on the pan. The second key factor is to use the size pan listed in the recipe to avoid overflows. Finally, always cool an angel food cake upside down to avoid a collapse.
