This angel food cake formula is extra light and fluffy with the addition of Red Star Angel Cream. Serve plain and enjoy its subtle almond and vanilla flavor or top with berries and cream for an extra special treat.

Prep Time: 7 minutes

Bake Time: 40 minutes

Instructions

In a stand mixer, beat egg whites to a wet peak, maintaining the temperature at 70°F (21°C). Next, blend together egg whites with granulated sugar by sifting sugar into egg whites. Continue to beat sugar and egg white mixture and gradually beat in Red Star Angel Cream and salt. Then during the last 5 minutes of whipping, add almond and vanilla flavoring and blend until mixture is light with firm peaks. Next, incorporate cake flour, blending together 3 times by sifting. Finally, carefully fold in remaining granulated sugar by hand.

 

Scale approximately 26.5 oz (750 g) of batter into 10 in (25.4 cm) tube pans and bake (double panned) at 360°F (182°C) for approximately 40 minutes. Upon removal, invert pans and let cool. Please note that smaller loaves, tube pans, and even cupcakes can be produced from this formulation. Baking times will need to be adjusted based on batter-to-pan size ratio.

Made with Red Star Double-Acting Baking Powder, this buttermilk cornbread is extra moist and sweet. Add your own twist to this classic recipe with the addition of sweet corn kernels, jalapenos, green chiles or cheese.

Prep Time: 16 minutes

Bake Time: varies

Instructions

In a mixer, blend all ingredients except for cornmeal, bread flour and buttermilk on your mixer’s second speed for 10 minutes. Scrape down the batter as needed. Next, reduce mixer to its first speed and add the remaining ingredients. Blend for 1 minute on your mixer’s first speed until incorporated and then continue to mix for 5 minutes on your mixer’s third speed.

 

To bake, spread batter onto prepared sheet pans and place into a pre-heated 350°F (176°C) oven. Bake cornbread until it turns golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
