For a new twist on angel food cake, give this recipe a try. It's light and tasty!—Nina Summan, Connersville, Indiana


  • 1-1/2 cups egg whites (about 10)
  • 2 cups packed brown sugar, divided
  • 1-1/4 cups cake flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons cream tartar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  1. Place egg whites in a large bowl, let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Sift 1 cup brown sugar and flour together twice; set aside. Sift remaining sugar; set aside.
  2. Beat egg whites until foamy. Add cream of tartar and salt; beat until soft peaks form. Add vanilla. Gradually add reserved sugar, about 2 tablespoons at a time, beating well after each addition; beat until stiff glossy peaks form. Gradually fold in flour mixture, abut 1/2 cup at a time.
  3. Gently spoon into an ungreased 10-in. tube pan. Bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until lightly browned and entire top appears dry.
  4. Immediately invert pan onto a wire rack; cool completely, about 1 hour. Run a knife around side of cake and remove to a serving plate.
