It is finally feeling like summer. As I plant more seeds and thin out the rouge dill/fennel/borage/mustard/cilantro I am adding some minutes of self care and hygge to today’s gardening. I’m hygging in the shade with some coffee cake, coffee, beach playlist, and flowers thinned from the garden.
I enjoyed my winter holiday hygge challenge and have been tying to make my breaks a little more special.
I love watching the show British Bake Off. I have watched every season multiple times (Except the last one which I just finished, but will rewatch soon.) The show always gives me ideas and makes me think, I can do that! It also make me think, I can’t do that! When they made Angel Food Cake for the technical I thought…that seems like it would be easy to make gluten-free.
I like to make this cake at least once a month. I use boxed egg whites I buy at Aldi. Each box I can make an Angel Food Cake and a batch of Chewy Chocolate Meringue Cookies.
There are a few tricks to this recipe. First, the egg whites need to be at room temperature. Second DO NOT grease the tube pan! Third cool the cake upside down on a rack in the pan. I now have two tube pans because I kept forgetting and spraying the pan! Now I just get the second one out and use it.
I don’t decorate this cake. Because decorating is not my strength in the kitchen. I eat it with some berries and sometimes with a scoop of SoDelicious CocoWhip. I hope you enjoy this cake as much as I do.
