Angel Food Cake with Strawberries

Angel Food Cake is a popular sponge cake in the US. This light and airy cake is regarded as food for the angels, because of its properties.This type of cake resembles the texture of a famous mini sponge cake in the Philippines called “Mamon“.

The method in making an angel food cake is quite different from the other traditional cakes. The eggs (whites only) are whipped using an electric mixer until soft peaks form. This technique allows more air to enter the mixture — making the cake sponge-like.

I personally like Angel food Cake for its light texture. I enjoy eating this cake over a cup of brewed coffee. The recipe that we have here involves a simple Angel Food Cake topped with whipped cream and fresh strawberries. The topping makes the Angel Food Cake more indulging; it also adds flavor to the cake — making it more appealing to the taste buds.

    I am one of your recipes follower, and it was really a big help for me to develop my cooking skills.
    I would like to ask if is there any other ingredients which can substitute the cream of tartar? because it is not available here in U.A.E. I’ve search here but most of them they even dont know what it is.Unlike there in the Phils. we can find it anywhere. by the way, what is the use of cream of tartar for baking cake? I tried baking the custard cake without the cream of tartar, sad to say the cake was hard. Hope you could help me with this.
