Lemon angel food cake

Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
14 \N Egg whites
1½ teaspoon Cream of tartar
¾ cup Superfine sugar
¾ cup Sugar
1¼ cup Cake flour
2 tablespoons Finely chopped lemon zest
2 cups Lemon curd
1 pint Fresh berries
\N \N Whipped cream; berries, flowers

Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. With an electric mixer, beat the egg whites on medium speed until foamy. Add the cream of tartar and beat again until egg whites become thick and double in volume. Slowly sprinkle the superfine sugar into the egg whites, mixing at medium speed. Increase to high speed and continue beating until egg whites are stiff and glossy.

Always use clean, dry utensils when beating egg whites. In a separate bowl, combine the sugar and cake flour. Sift once to remove lumps. Fold the flour mixture into the egg whites. Add the lemon zest and fold to combine. Spoon batter into an unbuttered 10" angel food cake pan. Bake for 45 minutes or until cake is golden and springs back when touched. Let cool. To assemble cake, cut cake in half horizontally. Spread bottom half with lemon curd.

Sprinkle with the berries. Place top layer on bottom half. Garnish with whipped cream, berries and flowers.
