Wanted to post this recipe for Angel Cake, as today my Mom be gone 21 years. She loved this cake. Hope some of you give it a try.

1 cup egg whites (8 to 10 eggs)1 1/2 cup sugar
1 cup cake flour
1 teaspoon Cream of Tartar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon orange flavoring
1/2 teaspoon vanilla flavoring
1 tablespoon water

Sift flour and sugar separately 4 times. Measure each after first sifting. Whip egg whites lightly with wire whisk. Add salt, water and flavorings when half beaten. Sift in cream of tartar. Continue whipping until whites hold their shape. Divide sugar into fourths. Fold in each fourth with 10 careful strokes of the spatula. Divide flour into fourths. Fold in each fourth with 10 careful strokes of the spatula. Pour into un oiled tube pan. Bake in slow oven (325 degrees) for 50 minutes.

So fluffy and so delicious.

What a wonderful way to remember your mother. Angel Food Cake is one of my favorites - my mother used Almond Extract but orange sounds interesting. Maybe next time I'll give it a try.
