TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) - WCTV chef Will Ward makes angel food cake in the studio during Saturday’s Good Morning Show:


  • 1 and 3/4 cups  granulated sugar*
  • 1 cup  cake flour (spoon & leveled)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 12 large egg whites
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons any extract you like

Preheat oven to 350°. Add cream of tartar, extract and salt to egg whites; beat on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually add one cup of the sugar, about 2 tablespoons at a time, beating on high until stiff peaks form. Gradually fold in flour and 3/4 cup of the sugar about 1/2 cup at a time.

Gently spoon into an ungreased tube pan. Bake until lightly browned and entire top appears dry 35-40 minutes. Immediately invert pan; cool completely, about 1 hour.

Run a knife around the side and center tube of the pan. Remove cake to a serving plate.
