Hi sweet readers ♥

I just adore a light and fluffy cake like the famous angel food cake, I like mine often covered in a light pink heavenly fluff.

But baking this cake in a 3 x 8-inch pan instead of a regular angel food cake pan makes this famous angel food cake even more versatile,

This is just a basic recipe for Angel Food Cake that you make in a regular Angel Food pan or make it in a 3 x 8 inch-pan.

I will show a recipe later today how I filled this delicious cake, so check back later today.

Note; if you make this cake in an regular angel food cake pan, don’t grease the pan!

And if using an angel food cake pan. make sure you turn the pan upside down after baking and place over the neck of a soda bottle. and let cool in the pan for at least 1 hour.

SEE THE VIDEO BELOW HOW TO MAKE THIS 3 LAYERS ANGEL FOOD CAKE.

ANGEL FOOD CAKE

  • 1 ¼ CUPS (115 G) CAKE FLOUR, SIFTED*
  • ¼ TEASPOON SALT
  • 2 CUPS (475 ML) EGG WHITES, ROOM TEMPERATURE
  • 1 TEASPOON CREAM OF TARTAR
  • 1 ½ CUPS (340 G) SUPERFINE OR GRANULATED SUGAR
  • 2 TEASPOONS VANILLA BEAN PASTE OR VANILLA EXTRACT

 

PREPARATION;

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
  2. Grease the bottoms and side of three 8-inch round cake pans and line only the bottoms with parchment paper.
  3. Sift together the cake flour and salt, then set aside; see below how to make your own cake-flour.
  4. Place the egg whites into the bowl and beat on low speed until foamy, about 30 seconds.
  5. Add cream of tartar; continue low speed beat until soft peaks form, about 1 minute.
  6. Increasing the speed to medium adding the superfine or granulated sugar, one spoonful at a time. (I prefer using superfine sugar)
  7. Beat on medium speed until stiff peaks forms, this takes about 2 minutes, do not over-mix at this stage!
  8. All together from start to finish; the mixing should only take bout 4 minutes’ total!
  9. Stop the mixer transfer the meringue mixture to a large, wide bowl.
  10. Add the vanilla bean paste; and then combine carefully with a silicon spatula.
  11. Sift ⅓ of the flour mixture into the egg whites and carefully fold in with a spatula. Repeat twice with the rest of the flour, folding very gently after each addition.
  12. Be careful not to deflate the batter too much by over mixing.
  13. Scoop the mixture into 3 x 8-inch round cake pans (I use an ice cream scoop for this),
  14. Then move a knife or spatula through the batter to remove any air pockets.
  15. Bake the cake in the middle of the oven for 20-25 minutes, until the cake is golden and springs back when lightly pressed.
  16. Remove the cakes from the oven and immediately turn upside down onto a cooling rack.
  17. Let cool in the pan for at least 20 minutes.
  18. Run a knife around the outer edges of cakes to remove it from the pan, remove the parchment paper.
  19. Transfer to a wire rack and flip the cakes over again to cool completely.

 

NOTE;MAKE YOUR OWN CAKE FLOUR

 

  • 2 ⅔ CUPS (300 G) ALL-PURPOSE FLOUR
  • 4 TBSP. CORN STARCH
  1. In a medium bowl, add both ingredients mix to combine,
  2. sift the mixture at least 5 times, And the homemade cake flour is ready.

  1. Hi
    Love your blog and recipes. And your kitchen is ???.
    My question is, is this quite a dry cake as there is no fat? Does it go stale very quickly? Do you have to eat on same day or can it be made in advance?
    Thank you!
    Xx

    • hi Aneesa, yes the cake is bit dry, but so delicious, i dont know what stale means? i like to eat it the same day, best of luck

      • An example of something that goes stale is when you leave bread out for too long and it is not longer so and fluffy but hard and not very pleasant to eat. I hope this helps!
