Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 45 minutes
Total Time 1 hour
- 1 1/2 cups white sugar
- 1 cup cake flour
- 1 1/2 cups egg whites (11-12 eggs)
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 teaspoons cream of tartar
- 1 teaspoon almond flavoring
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
Sift together 3/4 cup of sugar and the flour three times. Set it aside.
In a clean, grease-free bowl, beat the egg whites until they are frothy .
Add the salt and cream of tartar, then beat until the eggs hold stiff peaks.
Add the remaining sugar, three tablespoons at a time, beating well after each addition.
Fold in the flour/sugar mixture about 1/2 a cup at a time, then fold in the almond flavoring.
Spoon the batter into an ungreased angel food cake tube pan.
Bake on the lowest oven rack for 45 minutes or until the top is lightly browned and looks dry.
Remove the pan from the oven and immediately invert the pan, standing it upside down on 3 glasses that are equal in height for support.
Allow the cake to cool upside down completely, then slide a knife around the sides and center of the pan to loosen the cake.
Remove the cake to a plate and serve with desired fruit.
