Angel Food Cake!

Angel food cake is literally my favorite type of cake, because it is so fluffy and you can pair it with just about anything. My favorite thing to do is to cut up strawberries, make homemade whipped cream, and homemade angel cake. I take a nice piece of cake top with whipped cream and strawberries, then shave a bit of chocolate on top or cocoa powder (even powdered sugar) yum! So mouthwatering and perfect for the Holiday table!

You Will Need:

12 Organic Pasture-Raised Eggs, room temp
2 tsp Organic Vanilla
1/4 tsp Real Salt
1 1/2 Cup Organic Sugar
1 Cup Organic Cake Flour (mine is homemade)
1 tsp Cream of Tartar

Sift half the sugar, and the flour together; set aside

If you get a little egg yolk in the whites do not freak out! 
I have read how this completely ruins the cake, BS! 
As you can see I got yolk in mine, and if you continue looking on, my cake turned out more than fine!

Add salt, vanilla, and cream of tartar

You can see the salt.. so pretty, now beats these until soft peaks

Add your remaining sugar (not the sugar with the flour) to the soft peaks 1/2 cup at a time, beat until incorporated, add 1/2 cup at a time until sugar gone (should only be two)

Keep going, almost there! If you do not have a stand mixer, like I do not, then use a hand mixer, it works just as good

OMGGG so beautiful! 

GENTLY! I repeat GENTLY! fold in the flour/sugar mixture until incorporated fully

Pour gently into your tub pan (not greased!), gently tap the pan on the counter a couple times
Bake at 375 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown, top springs back and insert comes out clean

Beautiful golden color...

On unbleached parchment paper, invert the pan to allow to cool for 1 hour, or longer
After it is cooled, take a butter knife and loosen the sides and around the tube, you may have to take the knife on the sides and kind of push the cake backwards to loosen it from the bottom of the pan (push it towards the tub section)

Here is my beautiful masterpiece! Amazing and delicious! OMGG!
