Whole Wheat Angel Food Cake!
Some how whole wheat and angel food cake don't seem like they should be in the same sentence. With the new L'Equip flour sifter that attaches to the Bosch Universal Mixer, you can make whole wheat Angel Food cake! I still can't believe it myself. We made the cake and it was gone in minutes. The kids wanted seconds...thirds and then there were crumbs left. Yum.
12 large egg whites, room temperature
1/4 cup warm water
1 1/2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup cornstarch
3/4 cup freshly milled whole wheat flour
1 1/4 cups powdered sugar
In the Bosch Universal mixer, using the wire whips, place the egg whites, warm water, cream of tartar, and salt. Mix on speed one until light and foamy. Add 3/4 cup powdered sugar slowly. Turn to speed 2 or 3 and continue whipping until medium to stiff peaks form. Add vanilla.
In another bowl sift flour, corn starch and remaining powdered sugar three times, or once using the L'EQUIP flour sifter. Remove egg whites from Bosch bowl and place in larger bowl. Fold in the flour in three parts. Gently place the mixture into an angel food pan.
Bake in a preheated oven at 325 for 45-60 minutes. Do NOT open the oven during baking. This could cause the cake to fall. When finished baking turn upside down onto cooling rack and allow to be suspended for 3- 4 hours before serving.
Never spray an angel food cake pan
Note from paula: I would have never guessed it possible to make a WHOLE WHEAT Angel Food cake. This cake is light and fluffy and soooo good. You will love it and your family/guests will never believe you pulled a whole wheat dessert on them! :)
