Homemade angel food cake is worth the work. It is moist, unlike the sweet styrofoam available in the grocery bakery. A tube pan with a removable bottom is highly recommended.

FANTASTIC. It's easy to make, comes out PERFECT every time. It's nice to have something I can make from scratch, without additives, and not have to rely on something that came out of a box. My whole family loves this cake...even plain with nothing on it...of course, a few strawberries make it even better. After reading the other reviews, I have some suggestions: 1. Make sure all utinsels used are grease free - any grease can cause your cake to fall. 2. Line bottom of cake pan with wax paper. Before taking cake out of pan, slip a knife around the outside and inside of pan...your cake will come out perfectly. Once out, take the wax paper off the top of cake. 3. If you are seperating your own egg white, remember ANY yoke in the egg white will cause your cake to fall. Happy eating!

SUPER easy and SUPER yummy. Scroll down for some great tips on releasing the cake from the pan. I highly recommend parchment paper at the bottom of the tube pan. I also found a GREAT trick for separating eggs.... USE A FUNNEL!!! The whites slip right out and the yokes are kept in the funnel! Just be sure to separate over a separate bowl so that if a yoke does slip through, it won't spoil the whole bunch. Also, the almond extract is a GREAT addition to this cake.

Fluffy and moist, not at all like styrofoam that you get at the grocery. I made mine with half chocolate glaze and half with stawberrys and whipped cream. Both were delicious! Also use Pam non-stick spray when cooking to avoid the cake sticking to the pan.
