Vanilla Bean Angel Food Cake
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Bake: 45 min. + cooling
I live at a high altitude, above 6000’. What adjustments should I make?
Question.... Planning to make this recipe for my husband’s birthday! Angel food cake is his favorite! I only have a clear glass tube pan. What adjustments should I make when using this glass pan? Temp? Baking time? Should I grease pan? Your help is appreciated! Thanks!
Best Recipe I have a ever made! Wow! Worked perfect and tasted wonderful.I'll make this again and [email protected] by chance did you accidentally grease your pan? if you did ,that would be why it only was 2 inches high. An angel food cake needs to be put in a pan that isn't greased, and the egg whites need to glossy and when you touch the egg white mixture, you need to make sure you don't feel the sugar (that can also effect the outcome of the cake). If you try it again it is totally worth it!!!
My wife and I made this last weekend for an Easter desert and it did not turn out as it was supposed to. It did not rise at all. After it was done, it was two inches high and had the texture of a sponge. I did try some of it and it tasted good, but it did not rise. My wife threw it in the garbage. Maybe it needed baking soda or baking powder? I don't know what happened.
This is a great recipe. I was on vacation when I made, so I did not have all of the proper equipment. I bundt pan, and it made a beautiful decorative cake. But, I can't wait to try it again back at home with the proper tube pan, and add a little sherbert tucked into the middle. The kids will love it! I used the lime glaze recipe, and it was really good. I added some lemon, and made it a lemon/lime glaze. The lemon and lime shavings looked beautiful in the icing. The cake is beautiful, moist, and tasty.
