I have never baked a cake from scratch before. Furthermore, I stink at cooking. Everything I make has some kind of horrible flaw. I’ve made my peace with it though. Also I find egg whites intimidating for some reason. I've never had any luck with them. Anyway, my wife wanted an angel food cake for her birthday. Being the amazing husband that I am I decided to try and make her a homemade angel food cake. I was nervous going in because of those darn egg whites. Since there are only 6 ingredients needed I was willing to risk a potential failure. Plus it didn’t hurt that I had all the ingredients just hanging around not doing anything anyway. In the end the cake came out amazingly, awesomely, great. My wife was shocked and amazed. I honestly cannot imagine what went wrong for the folks that gave it one star. Something mysterious happened because if a total cooking buffoon such as me can make this cake AND have it come out like it did, and then anyone on Earth should be able to pull it off. In no way, shape, or form could a box cake beat this cake. Perhaps to a person with no tongue a box cake would be better (no offense to anyone without a tongue). For my foolish oven it took between 30 – 35 minutes to cook. I did the push/spring back test with 10 minutes left in the cooking time and springy it was. Have a good weekend.
