Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 1

1 1/2 Cup(s) Granulated sugar, divided
375 mL
1 Cup(s) Cake and pastry flour 250 mL
2 Cup(s) Egg whites, 12 to 16
500 mL
1 Teaspoon(s) Cream of tartar 5 mL
1 Tablespoon(s) Lemon juice or frozen orange
concentrate 15 mL
1 Teaspoon(s) Vanilla 5 mL
1 Teaspoon(s) Grated lemon or orange peel
5 mL
1 Frozen raspberries 1
2 Tablespoon(s) Orange or raspberry liqueur
optional 25 mL
2 Cup(s) Fresh strawberries, trimmed
quartered 500 mL
1 Cup(s) Fresh raspberries 250 mL
1 Cup(s) Fresh blueberries 250 mL
Sift 3/4 cup/175 mL sugar with flour twice. Reserve. With electric
mixer, beat egg whites with cream of tartar and lemon juice on medium
speed until "loosened". Continue to beat at medium-high until light.
Slowly add remaining 3/4 cup/175 mL sugar, beating constantly. Egg
whites should be very light and stiff. Beat in vanilla. Stir in peel.
Gently mix or fold in flour mixture in 3 additions. Do not overfold so
as not to deflate the egg whites. Very delicately spoon or pour batter
into 10-inch/4 L tube pan. Bake cake in preheated 375F/190C oven for
35 to 45 minutes, or until cake tester comes out clean and dry and top
of cake springs back when lightly touched. To make the sauce, defrost
frozen raspberries. If they come in syrup, strain them. Reserve juices
and puree berries through food mill or in blender or food processor.
Add enough reserved juices to make medium-thick sauce. Add liqueur and
gently stir in fresh berries. Cool cake in pan upside down (if pan
does not have little feet to act as rack, invert cake and pan onto
rack so air can circulate underneath). To remove cake from pan, use
long thin knife to loosen edges. If pan has removable bottom, remove
sides and then loosen bottom with knife. If you are using a one-piece
pan, use spatula or knife to loosen bottom. Do not worry if cake seems
crushed - it usually springs back into shape. Serve cake with berry
sauce. Converted by MC_Buster. NOTES : Angel food cake is delicious
and contains virtually no fat. The cake freezes well and can be served
with the Berry Berry sauce or with plain fresh fruit, sweetened soft
yogurt cheese or sorbet. You should use a traditional tube or angel
food cake pan, and remember that the whole trick to making a high,
light angel cake is to beat the egg whites properly. For the berry
sauce, a food mill will puree the berries and strain out the seeds at
the same time. If you puree the berries in a blender or food
processor, you will have to strain the mixture afterwards if you want
to remove the seeds. If you use unsweetened frozen berries, you may
have to add about 1 tbsp/15 mL sugar to the sauce. This recipe, from
Bonnie's "Simply HeartSmart Cooking" book, makes 12 to 16 servings.
