  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Make sure your 10 inch tube pan is clean and dry. Sift flour three times and set aside.
  2. In a large glass or metal mixing bowl, beat egg whites with salt and cream of tartar until foamy. Gradually add sugar, continuing to beat until stiff peaks form. Blend in vanilla and almond extract. Fold the flour into the whites until no streaks remain. Pour half of the batter into pan. Sprinkle with half of the cherries. Fill pan with remaining batter and top with remaining cherries.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 50 minutes. Invert pan and allow to hang until cake cools.

this would have been an amazing cake. but it didnt rise as much as it should have. even though i had it in the oven for an hour :/ it was still good. just a little too condensed.

This cake was delicious. It is not as light and fluffy as other angel food cakes, because there are not as many egg whites in it, but still really good. I folded my cherries into the batter ca...
