My Grandmother made wonderful Angel Food Cakes and sold them. Here is her recipe.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 1 1/2 cups white sugar
- 1/2 cup water
- 6 eggs, separated
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
Whip the egg whites until foamy. Add cream of tartar, and continue beating until stiff. In a separate bowl, beat the egg yolks until lemon coloured.
Boil the sugar and water until it reaches the thread stage, 230 - 234 degrees F (110 - 112 degrees C). Beat syrup into egg whites. Fold in egg yolks. Fold in flour. Pour batter into an ungreased tube pan.
Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 1 hour. Cool.
