"Create" ...Angel Food Cake

We finished off the Angel Food Cake today.  I promise you if you make this, which is not a hard cake to make, you will never buy or make a box mix again.  Here's the recipe.

Angel Food Cake
Makes 12 servings

1 3/4 c. sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 c. sifted cake flour
12 egg whites, room temp.
1/3 c. warm water
1/2 tsp almond extract, or extract of choice
1 1/2 tsp cream of tartar

In a food processor spin sugar about 2 min. until it is superfine. Sift half of the sugar with the salt and cake flour, setting the remaining sugar aside. In mixing bowl on low speed, blend egg whites, water, orange extract, and cream of tartar. After 2 min., beat at med. speed and slowly sift in the reserved sugar, beating until you have med. peaks. Sift enough of the flour mixture in to dust the top of the foam and fold in gently using rubber spatula. Continue until all the flour is mixed in. Carefully spoon into ungreased tube pan. Bake at 350 for 35 min. Check with wooden skewer (should come out dry). Cool upside down for at least 1 hour.
