I have also made this recipe twice and took the advice from a previous reviewer and added a little extra vanilla. The first time I made this I forgot that you must turn an Angel food cake upside down to cool, otherwise the bottom of your cake will become very dense. I turn it upside down into a colander and it worked pretty well to keep the shape.

This cake was soooo good! This was my first attempt at making a homemade Angel Food Cake. You don't realize how much you can taste the preservatives in a boxed mix until you make one from scratch! One word of advice though..make sure you have a HUGE bowl available for the folding step of the recipe.

I've made this cake twice. You must make sure to add the flour mixture slowly while stirring to avoid lumps. I added more vanilla and a few drops of almond flavoring.
