Description

Angel food cake gets its characteristic loft from beaten egg whites, otherwise known as meringue, and that's it -- no other leavening agent such as baking powder or soda is needed. You'll want to beat the sugar into the egg whites gradually to achieve the stable structure, and then to gradually fold in the four to avoid deflating them. Let cool completely before unmolding (or it will fall out naturally if you use a classic tube pan and suspend it on its legs or over a bottle, with a wire rack underneath).

Ingredients

8 egg whites
salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
250 grams powdered sugar
140 grams flour (without yeast)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 lemon (zest)

Directions

1Preheat oven to 160 degrees Celsius.
2Beat the egg whites to stiff peaks with a pinch of salt and the baking soda.
3Add the sifted sugar gradually, beating with the electric mixer each time you add some.
4Slowly mix in the flour little by little using a wooden spoon.
5Add the vanilla and lemon zest.
6Pour in an ungreased angel food cake pan.
7Bake for about 35 minutes or until cooked through. Remove from oven, and turn upside down on the serving plate.
8Allow to stand until cool and the cake falls naturally.
