This cake is so light, airy, and delicious it doesn't need anything to make it better. Though, if you're inclined, some strawberries and whipped cream wouldn't hurt. The best part? No one knew this cake was gluten free.

I was concerned the normal angel food melt-in-your-mouth texture wouldn't work when gluten free since some of the gf blends taste somewhat gritty, but King Arthur Flour makes a really good multi-purpose flour and their recipe for Angel Food Cake is perfect whether you are gluten free or not.


Yield: one 10" cake, about 12 to 16 servings.

Step 1: Gather ingredients

You'll need:

10-inch round tube (angel food cake) pan

3/4 cup (4.25 ounces) King Arthur Gluten Free Multipurpose Flour 
1/4 cup (1.25 ounces) cornstarch
1 1/2 cups plus 2 Tbsp. (12.25 ounces) superfine sugar, divided (I blended granulated sugar in my blender for one minute until it looked like powdered/confectioner's sugar.)
1 1/2 cups (12 to 13 ounces) egg whites (be very careful that not one drop of yolk gets in the whites or they won't whip)
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. cream of tartar
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. almond extract
