Their expressions are great.  And what a good combo for a flip doll.

3  COOKING / Dessert / angel food revelation on: July 17, 2017 08:43:31 PM
You can make angel food cake in paper muffin cups!!!

My family enjoys a good english custard.  Problem being that I end up with a bunch of egg whites that end up going bad before I use them.  I wanted to try using them up for angel food cake, but I don't have the special tube pan.  Well, I was reading a magazine the other day (Better Homes & Gardens to give credit where credit is due) and they had a recipe where you put the 'batter' into paper muffin cups!  I had to try it!

The recipe was pretty standard, 12 egg whites exactly the same as in my cookbook.  I thought it was only going to make 12 cupcakes, but when I got them filled (pile it all the way above the cups) I realized I was only halfway through.  So I decided to do an experiment.  The standard recipe has you put the 'batter' into the ungreased tube pan, and after cooking it letting it cool completely in the pan.  So I did that with a second muffin pan.  Bake them in a 350 degree oven for 20 min according to the recipe, though I did for 25 min on the second batch and thought they were better baked.

The results were good!  I was impressed with how the paper cups peeled off the angel food cupcakes fairly well.  The cupcakes straight in the pan had to have a knife run around the outside, which wasn't pretty with the way they puffed over the rims.  But they were still good.  The pan is having a good soak, though.

With the 12 egg yolks I needed 2 quarts of milk for my custard!  Put a generous ladle of custard in a bowl, plopped in the angel food cupcake, and piled sliced strawberries on top!  Now that's a dessert!  I'll be making these again, though most likely a half batch.

Actually, I used a bundt one time and it was a mess, maybe it was just too much batter? It didn't rise properly though! I was totally being a brat and defying the instructions on the box that specifically said NOT to use a bundt cake pan lol!

I believe angel food cakes aren't supposed to rise at all.

I am super happy with my new life change and a super bonus, my time is shorter with less flow.

Ignorant question, but how does that work?  Is it actually because of the cloth pads?

Not only is the firefly itself fantastic, but I'm impressed you were brave enough to ship it!

So I've always wondered if you really must have that special pan for angel food cake.  Could you just use a bundt pan?  And save those yolks to make custard, then pour it over the cake!  Yum!
