Introduction: How to Make Cake

This is a basic instruction for making my favorite cake " Angel Food cake".

Step 1: Things You Will Need.

First get all of your ingredients together. and pre-heat oven to 325
you will need 1 cup of cake flour
1 1/2 cups of sugar
10 eggs(at room temperature)
1 1/4 teaspoons of cream of tartar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
1/3 cup confectioner"s sugar,for top of cake

Step 2: Mix Cake Flour

Mix cake flour 1 cup with 1/2 cup of sugar in a bowl,put aside.

Step 3: Step 3-egg White

Separate egg whites from yolk ,it helps to do one egg at a time in a different bowl,in case you break the yolk.
you do not want yolk in your whites.
then throw away yolks.
In a mixing bowl add the egg whites from 10 eggs and beat on high speed,until they are stiff.
Slowly add the 1 1/4 teaspoons of cream of tartar and 1/4 teaspoon of salt continue beating for about one minute..

Step 4: Add Rest of Sugar

Add rest of sugar 1 cup ,slowly while still mixing egg whites .
then remove bowl from mixer and stir in your 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract and 1/4 teaspoon of almond extract.

Step 5: Add Flour Mix

Now get your cake flour 1cup that you mixed with 1/2 cup of sugar.
Slowly in 1/2 cup lots fold into egg white mix.

Step 6: Put in Tube Cake Pan

Put mix into a un-greased 10 tube pan or bunt cake pan
smooth top .
Put in pre-heated oven at 325 in middle of oven.
It will take 50 minutes to 55 minutes.
Take cake out of oven when it is nicely browned on top.

Step 7: Turn Cooked Cake Up-side Down

Turn cooked cake up-side down on wire rack .
If cake does not un-mold use a spatula around the edges to loosen it.
Let cake cool for 45 minutes to one hour.

Step 8: Sift Over Cake

Now lightly sift over your cake the confectioners sugar.
You can put a stencil over cake top first to make design,or just use all confectioners sugar on top.

Step 9: Slice and Enjoy!!
