Recipe Ingredients for Angel Food Cup Cakes

1/2 cup powdered sugar
2/3 cup cake flour, sifted
1/4 teaspoon salt
8 egg whites
1/4 cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 cup granulated sugar

Recipe Directions for Angel Food Cup Cakes

  1. Heat the oven to 325F. Lightly grease a muffin pan with baking spray. (You can bake these in paper muffin cups, as I did, but be aware that they will stick to the paper cups. For a cleaner look, bake in a nonstick muffin pan.) In a medium bowl whisk together the confectioner's sugar, cake flour, and salt.

  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer mix the egg whites, water, vanilla extract, and cream of tartar. (You can also do this in a large bowl, using a hand mixer.) Mix on low speed until foamy, then turn the speed to medium and begin to add the granulated sugar in 1 tablespoon increments. Add the sugar very gradually over a period of three to four minutes. When all the sugar has been added, turn the speed to high and beat for an additional three to five minutes, or until the mixture forms medium peaks. Don't beat until the mixture is extremely glossy and stiff; it should be modestly glossy, but the very tips of the peaks formed when you dip your finger in should flop over just a bit.

  3. Add the dry ingredients in two installments. Sift the dry ingredients through a fine mesh strainer, tapping them through and into the egg whites. Fold them in carefully, not overmixing. Fold in the second half of the dry ingredients.

  4. Spoon the batter into the prepared baking pan. Bake for 18 minutes or until the tops are slightly golden. Remove from the oven and let cool completely before removing and icing.
