Sulfuric, eggy tasting angel food cake....? Answered

I've tried making angel food cake twice, and both times ended up with sulfuric, slightly rotten egg-smelling cake.... They tasted rather sulfuric and eggy too. It was really gross!!! What went wrong? The egg whites and batter all looked fine!

If the eggs weren't bad, and the cake baked up okay and the texture was fine, I have a feeling you might just sensitive to the smell of the baked eggs. It's actually pretty common. Since there are so many eggs in angel food cake maybe try a recipe with less eggs or skip the angel food cake all together. Are you turned off by other cake recipes with less eggs?
