Angel Food Cake Recipe
1 Cup sifted cake flour

3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/2 cups (12) egg whites
Sift flour with 3/4 cup sugar 2 times; set aside. Beat egg whites with cream of tartar and salt until frothy. Add remaining 3/4 cup sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time, continuing to beat until whites hold stiff peaks. Fold in Vanilla. Sift flour mixture (1/4 mixture at a time) over meringue. Fold in gently until flour mixture disappears. With a spatula, push batter into 10 inch ungreased angel food cake pan. Bake 350 for 35 to 40 minutes. Invert cake in pan; cool.

For the creative person, there is Egg Art. It’s art done with either hollow eggs or egg shells in an artistic theme of Poultry Days. A minimum of three eggs are required.
