David Lebovitz’s Angel Food Cake

20140113_202205

I had some leftover egg whites and wanted to try my hand at making an actual angel food cake. Granted, I’ve made a version of angel food cake before called “vanilla cloud cake” that incorporated similar ingredients but produced a much softer, pillowy, and moist cake than the usual angel food cake. I didn’t have all the ingredients I needed for that cake, so the traditional angel food cake recipe would have to do. And, what better recipe to follow than the one by David Lebovitz?

This cake turned out like the stickier and somewhat drier angel food cake I’m used to having. I did notice that the cake baked up evenly and did not sink in the middle when I turned it over. (The vanilla cloud cake I mentioned before has a tendancy to do that.) This was a very delicious cake that I had no problem enjoying, even while watching what I eat! You can find this easy and tasty recipe here.

    I love angel food cake, your vanilla cloud cake sounds wonderful, more like a chiffon cake.Angel food cake with a whipped cream icing and fruit is heavenly, Your cake looks really good.

    I’m impressed by how light your cake looks, I’m always a bit afraid of egg white. Well done!

    A beautiful cake. Plus, it’s always nice to get an extra treat out of leftover egg whites or yolks.

    I have never baked an angel food cake–don’t even know if I have the pan. I think I am almost up to twelve egg whites in the freezer right now (though I may need to check out your cloud cake too).
