Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Run coconut or palm sugar through the food processor to achieve a fine texture. Mix coconut flour, arrowroot powder, and 3/4 cups coconut or palm sugar in a bowl with a wire whip and set aside.

  2. In a second bowl, whip egg whites, cream of tartar and salt until foamy but not stiff. Slowly add (2 TBL at a time) remaining coconut sugar. Whip until stiff peaks form.

  3. Fold in vanilla and almond extract. With a rubber scraper or whisk, carefully fold the flour mixture into the egg whites mixture adding 2-3 tablespoons at a time.

  4. Put into tube pan. Bake Paleo angel food cake at 375 F/ 191 C for 30-35 min or until the top springs back when lightly touched.

  5. Remove angel food cake from oven and invert to cool.

  6. NOTE: This Paleo angel food cake has a lovely caramel flavor and is moister than regular angel food cake but with similar texture. It also doesn’t rise quite as high as regular angel food cake.
