Angel Food Cake Recipe
The Land - Epcot
13/4 cups egg whites
13/4 cups granulated sugar
11/2 teaspoons cream of tarter
1/2 teaspoon salt
11/4 cups cake flour
1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon lemon zest (grated from lemon rind)
Strawberry coulis (recipe follows)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl, whip egg whites until stiff peaks form. Combine sugar and cream of tartar and add to stiffly beaten egg whites. Sift cake flour and salt and add to egg whites in thirds, mixing well after each addition. Finally, add vanilla and lemon zest, folding carefully so as not to break down batter.
Pour mixture into an ungreased angel food cake pan and bake 40 to 50 minutes, or until crust is golden brown.
Allow cake to cool upside-down on a bottle, so that no pressure is on the cake. Cool approximately 2 hours.
Serve with fresh berries and strawberry coulis.
2 cups strawberries, fresh
11/2 cup granulated sugar
1 cup strawberry jam
11/2 cup water
Puree all ingredients in a blender or food processor and pass through a large sieve. Serve with angel food cake.
