  • 12 large egg whites (360ml or 1.5 cups)
  • 300g granulated sugar (1.5 cups)
  • 120g cake flour (1 cup)
  • 1/4 tsp salt (1.25ml)
  • 1.5 tsp cream of tartar (7.5ml)
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract (10ml)


  1. Preheat your oven to 160°C (325°F). Do not grease or line your cake pan.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the egg whites until foamy. Add the cream of tartar and continue to beat until they form soft peaks.
  3. Gradually add the sugar, while continuing to beat, until the mixture forms stiff peaks.
  4. Sift the cake flour and salt over the egg white mixture. Fold gently to combine, making sure not to deflate the egg whites.
  5. Finally, fold in the vanilla extract.
  6. Pour the batter into your cake pan and smooth the top.
  7. Bake for approximately 50 minutes, until the cake is golden brown and springs back when lightly touched.
  8. Remove from the oven and immediately invert the pan to cool completely.
  9. Once cool, use a knife to loosen the edges of the cake and remove it from the pan. Enjoy!


Remember, when making Angel Food Cake, it’s important not to grease your pan. This allows the cake to ‘climb’ up the sides, giving it that wonderful height and lightness. Also, be sure to invert the pan immediately after baking to prevent the cake from collapsing.


So there you have it – a delightful Angel Food Cake that is as light as a cloud and sweet as a dream. Perfect for any occasion, this cake is sure to impress. Happy baking!
