Lemon Angel Cake with Strawberries
This recipe serves: 6  
1 cup cake flour
1 1/2 cups superfine granulated sugar
1 1/4 cups egg whites (about 10 large egg whites) at room temperature
1 1/4 teaspoons cream of tartar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
1 pint strawberries

Cooking Instructions
1. Preheat the oven to 350F.

2. Sift the flour twice with 1/2 cup of the sugar.

3. With an electric mixer on high speed, beat the egg whites, cream of tartar and salt until soft peaks form when the mixer is removed from the batter.

4. Add half of the remaining sugar and beat for 1 minute. Add the remaining sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time, beating after each addition.

5. Stir in the vanilla, and add lemon zest.

6. Fold the flour and sugar mixture into the egg whites, 1/4 cup at a time, until just incorporated.

7. Put the batter in an ungreased 10" tube pan and bake until the cake is a light golden brown and springy to the touch, about 1 hour. Invert the pan and let the cake cool completely before removing from the pan.

8. Wash and slice 1 pint of strawberries.

9. Place 1 slice of cake on each of 6 plates. Spoon the strawberries and their juices on and around the cake.

(Store the leftover cake in an airtight container for up to 2 days or freeze for longer storage.)

Serving Size: 1 slice (1/14 of cake) with strawberries
