Angel's Food Cupcakes...well almost!

Angel's Food Cupcake

Even if the frosting still haven't settled, I already put it on the cupcake because I'm very eager to eat like 3 of the above light and fluffy Angel's Food Cupcake.  In my entire life I haven't tasted one until I first baked  them last week of January and then made another batch last last week.

The frosting is a failure though because I can't find a whipping cream in the grocery :(  Decided to try these light cupcakes when I saw Emma's Birthday Cake over A Beautiful Mess.  I do not have a cake pan so why not make them in a cupcake form :)

the ones with toasted top are the best
Angels's Food Cupcake

1/2 cup cake flour
3/4 cup plus 2 tbsp. granulated sugar
1/4 tsp salt
6 egg whites
1 tbsp warm water (you can omit this if you want your cake to be denser)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 tsp cream of tarter

How to:
1.  Sift or dry whick cake flour and half of the sugar 2 to 4 times to make the cake fluffy and airy.
2.  In a large bowl, whisk together egg whites, water, vanilla extract and cream of tartar until wee combined (takes around 2 minutes).
3.  Swith to hand mixer and beat the mixture on medium speed while slowly adding the remaining sugar until medium peaks form.
4.  In 4 to 5 small batches, fold the sifted flour mixture into the meringue using a spatula.
5.  Fill lined cupcake pan with the batter and bake in a pre-heated oven at 350 degrees F for 15 to 20 minutes.

Top the cupcake with a light icing like whipped cream with powdered sugar and vanilla extract plus maybe your favorite fruit on top.

Thanks for reading. Till then. Bye!
