Blueberry-Angel Food Cake
I often make recipes that are geared toward children. Not to say adults can't enjoy it as well, but my focus is vibrancy and taste. And this is as blue as blue can get. I love the look of this cake and the children will too.
For 8 people
- 1 cup(s) cake flour (not self-rising)
- 2/3 cup(s) sugar
- 8 egg whites, room temperature
- 2/3 cup(s) granulated sugar
- 2 tablespoon(s) powdered sugar
- 2 teaspoon(s) blueberry flavoring*
- Blue food coloring, optional
Blueberry-Angel Food Cake Directions
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a cake pan with butter or margarine, or nonstick cooking spray. Line pan with waxed paper; grease waxed paper. Into small bowl, sift flour and powdered sugar.
- In large bowl, with mixer at high speed, beat egg whites and salt until soft peaks form. Mix in the blueberry flavoring with 2/3 c. granulated sugar, it doesn't need to be completely absorbed or blended. Add the blueberry flavored sugar, 2 T. at a time, to the egg whites, beating just until whites stand in stiff, glossy peaks when beaters are lifted.
- Sift flour mixture, one-third at a time, over beaten egg whites; fold in with rubber spatula just until flour mixture is no longer visible. You may also sprinkle a few drops of blue food coloring, if desired, for visual appeal.
- Spread batter evenly in prepared pan. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Invert cake onto cutting board; carefully peel off waxed paper.
- * I found my flavoring online and it cost me only $1.85. You can also use blueberry flavor concentrate that is sold online as well as blueberry extract, which is a little more costly. But a little goes a long way and you will find so many uses for this product.
