ANGEL FOOD 1

mumbai has hit an all time high in terms of heat. it’s right before the monsoon season starts and it’s extra humid. i recently had an event to attend and needed to make something sweet. i decided to make these angel food cupcakes since they are light and perfect for this weather. growing up, i always ate angel food cake with whipped cream and berries in the summer for dessert. i went with cupcake form since they are easier to serve, but feel free to use a cake pan instead.

enjoy!

this recipe makes 12 cupcakes. preheat oven to 350 degrees. coat the cupcake tin with oil or cooking spray.  sift the flour, powdered sugar and salt into a bowl and set aside. combine the egg whites in a bowl and beat with an electric mixer for 2 minutes. add the cream of tartar and beat for another 2 minutes. slowly add the granulated sugar about 1/4 cup at a time. increase the speed to high and continue beating for  3-5 minutes. add the vanilla and lemon juice. add half of the flour mixture on top of the eggs and fold in with a rubber spatula. add the remaining half. divide the batter evenly among the cupcake tray and bake about 15 minutes. let cool in the pan for 5 few minutes, then transfer to a rack to cool completely.
