My sister decided that she wanted Angel Food cake and my mother decided she wanted some Creme Brulee; one uses egg whites and the other uses yolks so I went searching for a recipe. I saw the other GF angel food recipes on Recipezaar but was not satisfied with the list of ingredients; they use a flour mix that is all starch and several of the reviews mention that it deflates from the bottom up. I found this recipe by searching on Google and made it instead. I was a little over zealous when mixing in the flour so my whites lost a little volume, but it did not affect the taste. The end result was a light and fluffy cake. It was the first time I had had angel food cake since going gluten-free and I was not disappointed. I made a strawberry trifle by breaking the cake into little chunks and layering them with lite whipped cream and strawberries. Edit: I have made this recipe 3 times now. To keep the whipped white mixture from deflating, I highly recommend not folding in the flour mixture by hand. The first 2 cakes I made, I folded it in by hand. The 3rd time I stirred it in on the slowest possible setting on my Kitchen Aid which resulted in a cake that was about 2-3" higher. All 3 of them tasted great though.
