Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Sift the confectioners sugar and cake flour together and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whip the egg whites on high speed until foamy. Continue to whip on high speed while adding salt, cream of tartar, vanilla and almond extract. Gradually add the white sugar and continue to whip until whites have stiff peaks. Quickly fold in the flour mixture 1/4 cup at a time. Mix only until flour is incorporated. Do not deflate egg whites.
  3. Pour batter into a 10-inch tube pan. Sprinkle top with chopped almonds. Bake at 375 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 35 to 40 minutes, or until top of cake bounces back when lightly tapped. Remove from oven, invert pan, and allow to cool in the pan. When cake is cool, loosen sides with a long knife and remove to a serving dish.

I found this a tad too sweet for my palate, but the wife loved it! It gets an extra star just for that!

Take a box of Angel Food Cake mix (just the contents of the box, no need to follow the directions on the box), & combine it with a 20 ounce can of crushed pineapple in its own juice. (No need to use a mixer, just stir it with a spoon) When you do this, something magical happens. The mixture starts to froth & it turns into an amazingly airy, fluffy bowl of deliciousness right before your eyes. Once it's all mixed up,grease and simply pour it into a 9 x 13 cake pan & bake 350 for 30 minutes

Just a note on the chopped almonds. One cup is way to many. I just eyed it and sprikled them on. It turned out to be a little under a half a cup. Other than that this is a GREAT recipe and all who have eaten it when I made it loved it.

This is the first angel's food cake i have ever made and it turned out wonderful. I don't think I beat the egg whites long enough because it was not as fluffy as I have previously had. Also I did not have almonds so I used pecans instead.

This is a very good recipe. The cake itself is moist and delicious, with that slight egg-foam taste that I love in an angel food cake. I opted to put the chopped almonds in the bottom of my tube pan and spooned the batter over them so that they would be on top of the finished cake. It worked out just fine, though next time I may chop the almonds finer so it's easier to cut. Everyone enjoyed this :)

I did not have a tube pan. I used a spring-loaded cake pan (without the center hole) and baked it for 30 minutes. It worked perfectly. Also, I cut back a wee bit on the sugar. I used 3/4 cups instead of 1 cup. It tastes amazing. I also eyeballed the addition of almonds on top. Also, don't be afraid to whip the heck out of those egg whites! SO GOOD!

I made this last Christmas. Love the flavour of this! Light dessert but flavourful. I used the tip to put the topping in bottom of springform pan, worked perfectly.
