  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Be sure that your 10 inch tube pan is clean and dry. Any amount of oil or residue could deflate the egg whites. Sift together the flour, and 3/4 cup of the sugar, set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whip the egg whites along with the vanilla, cream of tartar and salt, to medium stiff peaks. Gradually add the remaining sugar while continuing to whip to stiff peaks. When the egg white mixture has reached its maximum volume, fold in the sifted ingredients gradually, one third at a time. Do not overmix. Put the batter into the tube pan.
  3. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes in the preheated oven, until the cake springs back when touched. Balance the tube pan upside down on the top of a bottle, to prevent decompression while cooling. When cool, run a knife around the edge of the pan and invert onto a plate.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

Excellent recipe. When I have a large supply of eggs, this is how I use them. I never have cake flour, so I use 1/8 cup cornstarch and 7/8 cup of all purpose flour.

This cake was good, but I think a box mix would be just as good. With the leftover egg yolks I used the custard recipe that CCRUMP gave on 1/4/03 and it didn't turn out very well, it didn't thi...

this a wonderful and easy recipe. I've always used a mix to make angel food, but i'll always use this one now. If you don't have cream of tartar, use baking soda in the same quantity. It work...

My dad loved this cake and he is the pickiest eater in the world! I didn't think it tasted egg-y at all. Super easy!! It was moister than any store-bought cake I've ever had, even my dad who ...

Even though I messed up the recipe a little bit, it tasted absolutely wonderful. I didn't have any cake flour on hand so I sifted regular all-purpose flour 3 times and then deducted 2 tablespoo...

I was using this cake for strawberry shortcake, and on the third (!) try, I got it right. I used parchment paper on the bottom of two 9 inch pans,(they stuck without it on cake #1), and I waste...
