Brown Sugar Angelfood Cake Recipe

Brown Sugar Angel Food

Trading the brown sugar for the white sugar, gives this Angelfood Cake a caramelized color and flavor. Handed down through generations of bakers, this has always been one of my favorites.

1 1/4 cups Sifted Cake flour
1 cup Brown sugar, firmly packed
1 1/2 cups Egg whites (from 12 to 14 eggs)
1 1/2 tsp Cream of tartar
1 tsp Salt
1 cup Brown sugar, firmly packed
2 tsp Vanilla extract

Oven Temp ~ 350°
Baking Time ~
Pan Type ~ 10 inch tube pan
Preheat the oven.
Combine cake flour and 1 cup brown sugar. In a large bowl, beat egg whites with cream of tartar and salt until foamy. Gradually add second cup of brown sugar. Continue to beat until stiff peaks form. Add vanilla extract, blend well. Divide flour-brown sugar mixture into 4 portions. Use a large rubber spatula to fold each portion in separately; gently lift meringue up and roll it over onto itself. Fold JUST until no traces of dry ingredients can be seen. Gently push Brown Sugar Angelfood Cake batter into an ungreased 10-inch tube (angel food cake) pan. With a long, sharp knife, make 5 or 6 vertical cuts through batter to eliminate large air pockets.

Bake Brown Sugar Angel Cake until top of cake springs back after it is lightly touched with a finger. As soon as cake is removed from the oven, IMMEDIATELY invert pan. If pan does not have legs, place the center tube over the neck of a large heavy bottle. Do not remove from pan until cake is COMPLETELY cool. This takes at least 1 hour.

Dust with sifted confectioners' sugar, or frost with a favorite icing.

Did you say you're on a diet?
No desserts for 20 years?
Do you pass the cake and candy sections
With some heartfelt sighs and tears?

Go ahead !! Bake those gooey
Sticky sweet forbidden things.
But first put on your jogging outfit.
Your tennis shoes and exercise fling.

Run in place while stirring;
Time your cakes with jumping jacks.
Ten deep knee bends between ingredients.
Use that kitchen for a workout track.

And when you're out of breath and panting.
Pot holders around your prize.
Jog to the nearest 90 pound neighbor
And leave her your 1000 calorie surprise!

Nothing says "I Love You" more than a surprise dessert made from one of our homemade cake recipes.

Suppling Tips for Healthy Homemade Cakes

When Baking with Butter:

Room temperature butter in the cake batter is one of the biggest cake baking mistakes. In fact, butter must be below 68° to trap air molecules and build structure. Otherwise, the fat will liquefy and the cake will be flat. To get “cool” butter, cut the chilled butter into chunks and let it sit in a bowl for 5 minutes before beating.

When Mixing Cake Batter:

You cannot over beat the eggs, sugar and butter, but you can over beat the flour. If you do, gluten will form and you will be making a quick bread instead of layer cake. Beat the flour just until there are no visible signs of dry flour, but not until the batter is completely smooth.

Cake Flour:

Cake flour is milled from soft wheat that has a lower gluten content and higher starch content than all-purpose flour. It helps to ensure a fluffy texture in cakes and pastries. A substitute for cake flour is to use all-purpose flour, but reduce the amount by 2 tablespoons per cup.

Green Food:

The food choices that we make every day have a profound effect on the environment. From farm to spoon, growing our food, processing it and transporting it all use tremendous amounts of energy, water and chemicals. By making just a few small changes in our eating and buying habits, we can greatly reduce this impact. When we eat green, we help the environment by reducing global warming pollution and help ourselves by eating fresh and healthy food. Eat local from farmers in your own neighborhood!
