1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup sugar

  1. Place egg whites in a very large mixing bowl and let sand a room temperature for 30 minutes
  2. Sift powdered sugar and flour together (I found wisking well worked fine)
  3. Beat egg whites, cream of tarar and vinilla wih elecric ixer on med-high speed until soft peaks form (the tips curl).
  4. Gradually add sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time, beating until stiff peaks form (stand straight up).
  5. Gently fold in flour, one-fourth at a time.
  6. Spoon into lined cup-cake cups (about 18).
  7. Bake for 15-18 minutes

  1. I've never made angel food cupcakes. What a great idea. I love the lemon glaze idea too. Thanks for sharing this at Gluten-Free Wednesdays.
