Angel Food Cake with Toasted Almonds Recipe
This light angel food cake is made with cake flour and almond extract, topped with toasted almonds.
Homemade angel food cake is worth the work. It is moist, unlike the sweet styrofoam available in the grocery bakery. A tube pan with a removable bottom is highly recommended.
I made my angel food cake without the almonds and almond extract (didn't have any on hand) using this recipe and followed the directions of the angel food cake video. This is my first time using this recipe and it came out deelish!!!!(as Rachel Ray would say). It's doesn't tastes sweet to me. I didn't have any cake flour so I made my own watching a homemade cake flour recipe on Youtube. Everything came together really, really good. Good thing my son and I are the only ones who like angel food cake so there will be leftovers. My daughter will not demolish it like she usually do when it comes to cakes. My daughter can eat anything and will not gain weight.
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!
