Next Up: Angel Food Cake

I know the site is getting big and popular when readers start heckling me over staple recipes I have yet to do. Just this week reader Linda complained that I’ve never done angel food cake, and reader Susan needled me over not having any chocolate sauce on the blog. So OK already, let’s do them and put one on top of the other! I’m not telling you which will go on which. That’s up to me. Nyah.

  1. Uh oh. Take 16 egg whites …

    Your next recipe will use all those yolks, right? ;>

  2. Hi Joe, I happened to spend some time delving into the archives using your search engine earlier this week, and realized that some of your earlier posts aren’t captured in the index at left (e.g. rye bread). I wonder if some of the things people think aren’t here actually are, but not indexed? Maybe it’s worth suggesting that people use the search engine if at first they don’t succeed 🙂

    1. Hey Jen!

      I do miss things, no question. However I made those ryes before I started taking lots of pictures and indexing recipes, I think. I don’t think they’re especially good, though those experiments did prove something important: that dark ryes, originally, were hard as rocks. I almost revived those posts recently for some reason. Maybe I’ll make some rye bread soon. But that’s a good suggestion, Jen!

      1. OOOOH — Please do rye bread! I’ve been struggling with it for a while now. (If you have a home improvement project calling for a load of bricks do let me know…)

        1. Rye bread goes that way a lot of the time, Marion! I’ll do that soon.

  3. Ha! I made the big time. My name in lights!! Well, mentioned in the famous Joe Pastry’s blog. Just made one of my favorite recipes for angel food cake. Can’t wait to see how it stacks up to yours. The chocolate sauce sounds promising too. I still plan to make another angel food cake to ship this week. Maybe you will turn my head and I’ll try your recipe instead of the one I planned to make.

  4. There’s an angel food variation “out there” that puts grated chocolate in the batter…um…might be Rose Beranbaum? Hope you can give it a nod!
