A half loaf of angle food cake


  • 12 egg whites
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp. cream of tartar
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar, divided
  • 1 cup sifted Gluten Free Flour (see recipe below)
  • Advertisement

  • 1/2 tsp. almond extract
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract


  1. Beat egg whites (at room temperature) and salt until foamy. Add cream of tartar; beat until soft peaks form. Add 1 cup sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time, beating until stiff peaks form.
  2. Sift remaining 1/2 cup sugar and flour together. Gently fold into egg whites. Add flavorings. (Do not beat.)
  3. Spoon the batter into an ungreased 10-inch tube pan. Bake at 375 degrees F for 30 to 35 minutes.
  4. Invert cake and cool 1 hour or until completely cool. Remove cake from pan.

Gluten Free Flour


  • 2 cups rice flour
  • 2 Tbsp. tapioca flour
  • 1/4 cup corn starch
  • 1 tsp. Xanthan Gum


Blend ingredients together. Substitute for regular flour. NOTE: The original cake recipe calls for 1 cup sifted cake flour. I substituted the gluten free flour for the cake flour. This cake is delicious.

I saw on Thrifty Fun that you can freeze egg yolks so after making the cake, I put each yolk into a section of an ice tray and froze them. After frozen, I put them in a ziplock bag.


To test them for cooking, I took out 2 and placed them in the refrigerator the night before cooking breakfast the next morning so they could thaw. For breakfast, I mixed them with 3 eggs and scrambled them. They were very good. These yolks will not be wasted.

Also, this cake freezes well. I sliced it into individual servings and wrapped each piece in seram wrap, placed them in a zip lock bag and put it in the freezer. This keeps me from devouring half the cake in one day.
