Having left with alot of egg whites from the Double Berries Cheese Lapis (see below post)… I have been searching for recipes that make use of egg whites and I found the Angel Food Cake recipe, just the recipe that I need!

I have added some orange juice to the original recipe… but I did not put enuff orange juice to have the orangery taste and fragrant as I afraid that it will be too sour if added too much.

Nevertheless, the cake still taste nice… it’s already about half eaten after it’s just cooled down! It’s like Chiffon Cake but lighter, more spongy texture… more holey…

Ingredients:

250 grams egg whites
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
110 grams castor sugar
100 grams Cake Flour
2 tablespoon orange juice

Method:

1.    Preheat oven at 175 deg C.
2.   
Whisk egg white with cream of tartar until foamy, add in sugar gradually and whisk until peaks formed.
3.    Fold in orange juice and flour and mix well.
4.    Pour into a 20 cm chiffon pan and bake in preheated oven for 40 mins or until skewer comes out clean.

  1. I’m not very good at making sponge cakes, mine always sinks. What’s the secret technique?

  2. Amsiewong, there’s no secret technique… just make sure that the egg whitesare well whisk, it should be ard triple the orginal size, white and able to form peaks when the whiskers are lifted.

  3. great!
