Angel Food Cake Bites

As you can see, I just made Challah, and because of that I had a lot of extra egg whites to use up. And egg white omelets didn’t seem all that appetizing…too healthy…blech. Initially I considered Lady Fingers, but then remembered my favorite type of cake is essentially made up of all egg whites! Angel food cake! I have to be honest, until today I had only had it out a box but now that I’ve tried it homemade I will never be a victim of angel food box cake again! And it’s super simple!

Ingredients (Yields 18 cupcakes)
6 Egg Whites
3/4 cup White Sugar
1/2 cup Cake Flour
1/2 tsp Cream of Tartar
1/8 tsp Salt
1 tsp Lemon Juice
1/2 tsp Vanilla
1/4 tsp Almond Extract

Preheat oven to 325F. Start by putting all of your eggs in a large bowl, and start beating until frothy. Then add cream of tartar and salt. Beat until soft peaks form.Add in lemon, vanilla, and almond. Then slowly sift in sugar and beat until stiff peaks form. Then with a rubber spatula fold in sifted flour. Be careful to not deflate egg whites. Then evenly distribute to lined cupcakes tins. Bake for 20 minutes or until tops are slightly golden. Let cool and enjoy with a side of whip cream and strawberries. Simple low calorie delicious snack. I had at least 5 of them tonight! Hope you enjoy as much as I do!

    These were delicious. Thanks for the sample, made me want more. :)

    • I wish I could find the original rpicee from the magazine! This is not exactly it. In her magazine it was billed as a cake and I know it did not have oil in it. I no longer have the magazine and cannot find the rpicee anywhere. I always made them as cupcakes and they were delish. And the frosting was not glaze like, I always filled a bag with it and frosted just like any buttercream.
