Homemade Angel Food Cake

This is an old recipe for the angel food cake. Enjoy we do. Recipe is not original with me, it is an old recipe that was handed down.
I’ve made the pineapple angel food before and love it. Wondered about it for a “tea” we are having for a fund raiser. Thanks for the input. Think I’ll try cupcakes tonight.
-Thank you Leila! I feel so much better knowing that I didn’t completely screw it up! 🙂 I’ve never had angel food cake before so I didn’t know what to expect. Like I said, my family gobbled it up. My best friend who owned a family bake shop with her husband for 20 years absolutely LOVED it and rubbed it in her face to her husband who didn’t make it to our gathering. Not knowing what to expect is what probably had my mind going since if never made or tasted one before. I will be making it again in place of my usual pound cake that I serve with fresh fruit and homemade whipped cream. The lightness in this cake, made the fruit (strawberries, blueberries and bananas) that much more enjoyable to me. I can’t wait to make it again.
-It was great! I’m not sure what happened though…the texture wasn’t really “cake like” at all. It was more spongey than I’d expected. But the flavor was awesome and no one complained about it at all. It’s all gone!! Lol…I will make it again. I dunno…maybe I over mixed it? It was chewey, no crumbs…just crumbs on the outside, not on the actual inside…it was like bread. Thank you for the post…
-Mine is going into the oven now!!! It’s my 1st Angel Food Cake! Baked about everything but this in my lifetime!! So exited and anxious 🙂 lol
