Angel Food Cake

I’ve been wanting to make angel food cake for quite a long while, but in every recipe I found, cream of tartar was one of the needed ingredients. Unfortunately this ingredient isn’t available at where I live so I had to figure out if it was possible to make this cake without cream of tartar. It turns out that it is! In fact, you only need a few ingredients which you probably already have in your kitchen.

If you have any egg whites left from baking something, don’t throw them away! Use them to make this for dessertΒ πŸ˜ƒ

This cake is very soft and fluffy and is very tasty on its own, but is especially delicious when eaten with some fresh berries!
