Coffee Angel Cake Recipe:


  • 1 cup cake flour
  • 1 1/4 cup confectioner’s sugar
  • 12 egg whites
  • 3 tbs coffee crystals
  • 1 1/2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • Icing
  • 1 tbs coffee crystals
  • 2 tbs hot water
  • 1 1/2 cups confectioner’s sugar


Preheat oven to 375F. Sift together flour and confectioner’s sugar. In another large bowl, beat egg whites, coffee crystals, cream of tartar and salt until soft peaks form. Beat in vanilla. Continue beating at high speed and slowly add sugar (2 tbs at a time). Beat until sugar is dissolved and you have stiff peaks. Fold in flour mixture until just blended. Pour batter into an ungreased 10-inch tube pan. Bake for 35-40 minutes, then let cool.

For the icing, dissolve coffee crystals in hot water, then stir into confectioner’s sugar until smooth. Spread on cooled cake, and serve.
