National Angel Food Cake Day

National Angel Food Cake Day celebrates angel food cake, a cake so named because of its light and fluffy texture. It originated in America, most likely from the Pennsylvania Dutch, and first became known in the 1870's. The first recipe for the cake appeared in The Home Messenger Book of Tested Recipes in 1878. It is a type of sponge cake made without yeast or butter. It consists of flour, sugar, and egg whites, and most often cream of tartar. The egg whites are what give it its airy texture. It is usually baked in a tube pan—a pan with a tube in its center—which allows the batter to rise more easily, and cling to all sides of the pan.
