This has become a favorite in our house...
Angel Food Cake:
1 cup Pamela's Artisan Gluten Free Flour Blend
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp salt
2 cups fresh egg whites (about 10 jumbo eggs, reserve the yolks for the pudding)
1/4 cup warm water
1 1/2 tsp cream of Tartar
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp almond extract (optional)
1 cup granulated sugar
Preheat oven to 350. Sift together powdered sugar, flour and salt. Do this 4-5 times (this is important, but if you don't have time...and I don't have a sifter, then the cake is a little denser...but still great)
In a stand mixer beat: egg whites, warm water, cream of Tartar, vanilla and almond extract. Gradually add granulated sugar in 3-4 batches. Soft peaks will form 2-3 min. Turn to high and beat until stiff and glossy (another 2 minutes or so).
In 4 batches, add flour mixture by folding in gently with a rubber spatula. Be gentle and quick, as not to deflate the meringue.
Put in a 10" un-greased tube pan (sometimes I grease the bottom slightly for ease of removal...but not the sides. Bake 45-55 minutes in middle of oven until golden brown. Cake should spring back when touched & not be sticky.
Invert on a bottle to cool at least 1 hour. Using a long knife cut around sides and center post of cake to loosen from pan. Let dry 1 hour on rack.
1 1/2 cup sugar
2/3 cup gluten free flour blend
1/2 tsp salt
8-10 egg yolks (reserved from above)
2 cans of Trader Joes Light coconut milk
2 pinches of nutmeg
2 pinches of cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla
In a heavy saucepan, bring 2 inches of water to a boil. In a large stainless steel bowl, whisk together all ingredients except vanilla. Place bowl over boiling water and cook, stirring constantly for 12-15 minutes until pudding has thickened. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
I cut the angel food cake into cubes and put in a 9x13 pan. I pour the pudding over and top with sliced strawberries.
(This is also the pudding I use for Banana Pudding. You would layer Trader Joes Gluten Free Ginger Snaps in the bottom of a dish, then add a layer of sliced banana and then pour the pudding over the top.)
It is super yummy, and probably Levi's favorite dessert.
