Angel Food Cake with Strawberries and Whipped Cream Frosting
Assemble all ingredients ahead, Prepare an Angel Cake baking pan with GF cooking spray or butter. Sift Astoria Mills Fine Flour - Mix #3 over the pan and invert, tap to remove excess. Pre-heat oven to 350 F.
Mix in a separate bowl and set aside:
1 1/3 cup Astoria Mills Fine Flour -Mix #3
½ teaspoon Xanthan gum
¼ teaspoon Baking powder
In an electric mixer, beat until soft peaks form:
12 large room temperature egg whites (about 1 ¾ cups)
½ teaspoon salt
1 ½ teaspoons cream of tartar
Beat in a little at a time:
1 ½ cups granulated sugar
Beat until stiff peaks form. Then fold in gently,
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Sift in the flour mixture while mixer is on the lowest setting, to fold together until blended.
Spoon the cake batter into angel food cake pan. The batter will be thick and you may need to push the batter into the edges so that it will be firmly in place in the bottom of the pan. Bake at 325 F. for about 50 to 60 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched with fingertips.
Invert pan and cool completely. The cake will rise quite a bit and then settle somewhat, but still be reasonably high. Gently lift cake out of pan with the tube and loosen bottom. Remove from tube section and frost with whipped cream and strawberries as shown or eat plain or with fruit on the side.
Ok, go ahead and enjoy your Angel Food Cake and wow anyone you serve it to, no one will know it is gluten free unless you tell them!
