Ingredients for healthier Angel Food Cake on a kitchen counter
Gather Your Ingredients
Start by gathering all your ingredients. You'll need 12 large egg whites, 1 cup of cake flour, 1.5 cups of raw honey as a healthier alternative to refined sugar, 1.5 teaspoons of cream of tartar, a pinch of salt, and 2 teaspoons of pure vanilla extract.
Preheated oven and a clean, dry tube pan
Preheat and Prepare
Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). While the oven is heating, prepare your tube pan by ensuring it's clean and dry. Do not grease it.
Beaten egg whites forming soft peaks in a bowl
Beat the Egg Whites
In a large bowl, beat the egg whites until they form soft peaks. This is crucial for the light, fluffy texture of Angel Food Cake.
Adding ingredients to the egg whites and beating until stiff peaks form
Add the Remaining Ingredients
Add the cream of tartar, raw honey, salt, and vanilla extract to the egg whites. Continue to beat until the mixture forms stiff peaks.
Folding in the cake flour into the egg white mixture
Fold in the Flour
Gently fold in the cake flour, a little at a time, using a spatula. Be careful not to deflate the egg whites.
Batter in a tube pan ready to be baked
Bake the Cake
Pour the batter into the tube pan. Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the cake springs back when lightly touched.
Inverted pan cooling the baked Angel Food Cake
Cool and Serve
Remove the cake from the oven and invert the pan to cool the cake completely. Once cool, remove the cake from the pan and serve. Enjoy your healthier Angel Food Cake!
