It is very easy to make. Just be sure you don't use a nonstick angel food cake pan. It won't cool correctly and it will fall when you turn upside down.

Donna thanks for the info. I rarely eat angel food cake so I am anxious to see how it turns out. It is hard to make?

Char thanks for posting that. I use splenda to replace most of the granulated sugar. Also I double it. If you have a angel food cake pan 1/2 of the recipe makes a very small cake. You have to double it to get a normal size cake. Also I don't put in the lemon peel as it makes it bitter. I prepackage ahead all the dry ingredients that you sift and it makes it go faster the next time I want to make a cake. Be sure you egg whites are really stiff. It makes a big difference. A few times I got in a hurry and it made the cake a lot more dense. This cake freezes very well.

Here is the recipe for Angel Food Cake. If you try it, let me know how it comes out.

Angel Food Cake

7 eggs whites (3/4 cup)
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup potato starch flour
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/3 granulated sugar
3/4 teaspoon cream of tarter
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp fried lemon peel

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees
Set the egg whites aside to bring to room temperature.
Sift together into a small bowl the powdered sugar, flour, and cornstarch. The sifting is essential in this recipe. Measure the granulated sugar to have handy.
In a large glass or metal (not plastic) mixing bowl, place egg whites, cream of tartar, salt, and lemon peel. With mixer at high, beat until the mixture is well blended. Continue to beat while adding the granulated sugar slowly. Beat just until sugar is dissolved and whites form stiff peaks.
With a rubber spatula, gently fold in the flour and powdered sugar mixture about one-fourth at a time, folding just enough so the flour disappears.
Pour batter into ungreased 9" tube pan and cut through with spatula to break any air bubbles. Bake at 375 degrees for 35 minutes, or until top springs back when lightly touched. Remove from oven and cool cake in the inverted pan. Remove cake only when completely cool.
Makes 8 servings.
This recipe can be doubled for a large 10" tube.

Laura I make Angel food cake at least once a month from scratch. It is is Betty Hagmans cookbook. It beats mixes any day.

Also I make a great Irish Cream cake and Carrot cake that I think I have posted the recipes for. I have taken both to church and people couldn't believe they were GF. I have actually sold a few.

My Family has a favorite cake that we have been eating for years. We call it Auntie Pat Chocolate cake but it is really just the cake and frosting off of the Hersheys Bakers Cocoa can that you can get at any grocery store. I was really missing this cake after I had to change to gluten free eating and converted the recipe using the directions from Carol Fenster 1000 gluten free recipes cookbook. This is my favorite cook book with lots of cake recipes included. Borders and amazon both carry this book and it is at my library as well and well help you convert your recipes to gluten free. All of my family is not gluten free but I do all of our baking with gluten free flour now and so except for some pasta, bread and store bought gluten containing items that I keep separate I have changed all of our kitchen to as close as possible to no cross contamination. If you are going to sell "gluten free" I think you probably have to be certified and meet the food safety rules of your area and also certified by some celiac organization. If you really want to do it I'm sure you could though...where there's a will there's a way.

My hubby loves Pineapple upside down cake and will make that for him next month as that will be his birthday. I bought the Betty Crocker GF cake mix and the rest is fine. I will let everyone know how it came out.

It is just hubby and I in the household so 99% of everything in the kitchen is gf and it has been fine.

My best flour blend for flavors is equal parts millet, sorghum, and tapioca. Made lots of flavored cupcakes with that this summer. I also did a lot of vegan and soy free baking, both of which seem to be of interest to people I knew. At least dairy free, which is easy enough since butter is easy to replace with various oils, when I wanted to use eggs (they just make everything more fluffy!).

I'm very careful being Gluten Free myself, but living in a household that is not I have to take a lots of precautions. I would only make them when it was the only thing being made in dedicated pans and utensils.

To be honestly safe, a gluten-free cake has to be baked in a gluten-free facility with no possibility of cross contamination due to flour in the air or on any materials. That's why they are so hard to get.

I'm thinking about making Gluten Free decorated cakes. I'm looking for suggestions and ideas about, liability, different related allergies that would be most helpful to be avoided, and lastly the best gluten free cake recipe from scratch that can be easily modified to different flavors. I already do regular cakes, but I've been thinking about how nice it would be to for kids and brides to have a real cake that they can eat.
