  1. In a mixing bowl, beat egg whites, cream of tartar and salt on medium speed until soft peaks form. Add sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time, beating well after each addition; beat until smooth and glossy and stiff peaks form. Add extracts on low speed. Combine confectioners' sugar and flour; gently fold into egg mixture. Pour into an ungreased 10-in. tub pan. Bake on the lowest rack at 375 degrees F for 35-40 minutes or until top crust is golden brown and cracks feel dry. Immediately invert cake in pan to cool completely. Loosen sides of cake from pan and remove.
  2. For glaze, melt butter in a saucepan. Stir in the confectioners' sugar and cinnamon. Add apple juice slowly until glaze is thin enough to drizzle. Drizzle over cake.

I'm not a fan of angel food cake (the person I made it for is) and I devoured this. The glaze is phenomenal, especially when warm. I made it twice. The first time, I added a tbsp of apple jui...

Loved the cake but the icing was waaaay too sweet (and I have a pretty big sweet tooth). Great flavour, just too sweet. I would make again with these flavours but less sugar, more apple juice....

This was wonderful. I have two this weekend, one to keep at home and one for my husband to take to work. I will be making more of this. The only thing that I done different was that I poked h...

I got mixed reviews on this cake. First off, I too believe the cake itself has too much sugar in it. My cake also came out rather sticky and "wet." Hence, my testers said it reminded them of sto...

This is one of the best angel food cakes I've ever had. It's extremely sweet, but I have a serious sweet tooth. The glaze is amazing, but the cake is sweet and delicious enough by itself.

Though I didn't use the glaze recipe this angel food cake turned out wonderful. It was soft and fluffy and didn't settle when cooled. I will be using this recipe again!

Very easy and delicious. It took me 6 large and 3 medium eggs to get 1 & 1/2 cups of egg whites, if anyone is wondering.

Yum Marlys! I'm really enjoying this. :) I've had a taste for your angel food cake lately. Now that I've made it, I am sooo glad I didn't wait any longer!!! I didn't find this to be too sweet at...

This was absolutely delicious!!! It was pretty sweet, but we like that in our house!!! If you don't have a major sweet tooth I'd cut down on some of the powdered sugar. I can't wait to have s...
