What is Angel Food Cake?

Angel food cake is a light and fluffy dessert made from egg whites, flour, sugar, salt, cream of tartar, and vanilla extract. It’s a classic American dessert that has been around since the 19th century. Unlike most cakes, angel food cake does not contain butter or oil – making it much lighter than other cakes. The cream of tartar gives the cake its signature soft texture. Because of its light and airy texture, angel food cakes are often served with a side of ice cream or fresh fruit for added flavor.
