(German) - (Pennsylvania Germans)

11 eggs (whites only).
1-1/2 cups granulated sugar (sifted 3 times).
1 cup flour (sifted 5 times).
1 teaspoonful cream of tartar.
1 teaspoonful vanilla.
Place white of eggs in a large bowl and beat about half as stiff as
you wish them to be when finished beating. Add cream of tartar,
sprinkle it over the beaten whites of eggs lightly, and then beat
until very stiff. Sift in sugar, then flour very lightly. Fold into
the batter, rather than stir, with quick, even strokes with spoon. Put
quickly in tube pan, bake in moderate oven from 35 to 50 minutes. Do
not open oven door for first 15 minutes after cake has been placed in
If cake browns before it rises to top of pan open oven door two
minutes; when cake has risen to top of pan finish baking quickly. The
moment cake shrinks back to level of pan remove from oven. This is an
old, reliable recipe given Mary by her Aunt, who had baked cake from
it for years.

Mary was taught by her Aunt, when preparing a dish calling for yolks
of eggs only, to place the white of eggs not used in a glass jar which
she stood in a cold place or on ice. When she had saved one even
cupful she baked an angel cake over the following recipe:
One heaping cup of pulverized sugar (all the cup will hold), was
sifted 8 times. One cup of a mixture of pastry flour and corn starch
(equal parts) was also sifted 8 times. The whole was then sifted
together 4 times. The one cupful of white of eggs was beaten very
stiff. When about half beaten, sprinkle over the partly-beaten eggs
one scant teaspoonful of cream of tartar, then finish beating the
whites of eggs. Flavor with almond or vanilla. Then carefully sift
into the stiffly beaten whites of eggs sugar, flour and corn starch.
Fold into the whites of eggs rather than stir. Aunt Sarah always baked
this cake in a small, oblong bread pan. This cake should be baked in a
_very_ moderate oven, one in which the hand might be held without
inconvenience while counting one hundred; the oven should be just hot
enough for one to know there was fire in the range. Do not open the
oven door for 15 minutes, then increase the heat a little; if not too
hot, open the oven door a moment to cool and bake slowly for about 55

The whites of four eggs should be beaten very stiff and when partly
beaten sprinkle over 1/2 teaspoonful of cream of tartan Finish beating
egg whites and sift in slowly 1/2 cup of fine granulated sugar, then
sift 1/2 cup of flour (good measure). Flavor with a few drops of
almond flavoring. Bake in small Gem pans, placing a tablespoonful of
butter in each. Sift pulverized sugar over tops of cakes. Bake 20
minutes in a _very_ moderate oven. The recipe for these dainty little
cakes was given Mary by a friend who, knowing her liking for angel
cake, said these were similar in taste.

Other Recipes


Whites of nine large or ten small fresh eggs, one and one-fourth cups
sifted granulated sugar, one cup sifted flour, one-half teaspoonful
cream tartar; a pinch of salt added to eggs before beating. After
sifting flour four or five times, measure and set aside one cup; then
sift and measure one and one fourth cups granulated sugar; beat whites
of eggs about half; add cream tartar and beat until very, very stiff.
Stir in sugar, and then flour, very lightly. Put in pan in moderate
oven at once, and bake from thirty-five to fifty minutes.

Other Recipes

Angel Cake

The whites of nine large, fresh eggs. When they are partly beaten add

one-half teaspoonful of cream of tartar and then finish beating--the

cream of tartar makes them lighter--then add one and a quarter cups of

granulated sugar, stir the sugar very lightly into the whites of the

eggs, and add a teaspoonful of vanilla. Have flour sifted five times,

measure a cupful and fold it in very carefully, not with a circular

motion, and do not stir long. Turn it into a Turk's head mould and bake

forty-five minutes. Do not grease the mould, and when taken out of the

oven invert it until the cake is cold before removing from the pan.

Never use a patent egg-beater for this cake, but a whip, taking long,

rapid strokes, and make it in a large platter, not a bowl.

Suffrage Angel Cake

(a la Kennedy)

11 eggs

1 full cup Swansdown Flour (after sifting)

1 1/2 cups granulated sugar

1 heaping teaspoon cream of tartar

2 teaspoons vanilla

1 pinch of salt

Beat the eggs until light--not stiff; sift sugar 7 times, add to eggs,

beating as little as possible. Sift flour 9 times, using only the

cupful, discarding the extra flour; then put in the flour the cream of

tartar; add this to the eggs and sugar; now the vanilla. Put in angel

cake pan with feet. Put in oven with very little heat. Great care must

be used in baking this cake to insure success. Light the oven when you

commence preparing material. After the first 10 minutes in oven,

increase heat and continue to do so every five minutes until the last 4

or 5 minutes, when strong heat must be used. At thirty minutes remove

cake and invert pan allowing to stand thus until cold.
