Angel Food Cake

In memory of the 20 children and 6 teachers whose lives were lost at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

  • 1 1/2 cups egg whites (about 11 large eggs)
  • 1 tsp. cream of tartar
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/14 cup sugar - sifted
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 cup flour - sifted two times
  1. With a stand or hand held mixer beat the egg whites with the cream of tartar and salt on high speed until foamy.
  2. Continue beating and slowly add in the sugar (one cup) a little at a time until the egg whites form a stiff peak.
  3. Gently fold in the vanilla.
  4. Using a rubber spatula, fold in the remaining sugar and the flour into the beaten egg white mixture until the sugar and flour are combined.
  5. Pour all of the batter into a 10 inch tube pan.
Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for approximately 30-35 minutes. The crust should be a deep golden brown.
Allow the cake to cool completely before removing it from the tube pan.
Serve with a mixture of fresh berries and whipped cream.

This makes a beautiful dessert that your family and friends will love.
