Ingredients

  • 1 cup Cake flour
  • 1.5 cups Granulated sugar
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 12 Egg whites From large eggs, Room temperature
  • 1.5 tsp Cream of tartar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp Almond extract
  • 1 cup Blueberry pie filling

Instructions

  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together the cake flour, sugar and salt. Keep aside.
  • In another mixing bowl, beat the egg whites, cream of tartar, vanilla extract and almond extract for 5 to 7 minutes, OR until stiff peaks form.
  • Use a spatula to gently fold the dry ingredients into the egg white mixture.
  • Pour the batter evenly into an UN-GREASED angel food cake pan.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes OR until the top is golden brown and there are some cracks. The top should spring back with a gentle touch.
  • Once the cake is fully baked, invert the pan upside down and let it cool down completely. Run a knife around the cake gently and remove it from the pan.
  • Top it off with blueberry pie filling and serve immediately.
