We are lucky enough to get two posts from Beverly Jo Noble and her amazing cookbook this month… everyone say thank you Beverly. I am allergic to Raspberries, so sad but that doesn’t mean you all can’t enjoy the wonderful berry.

I hope you all enjoy this wonderful recipe, and be sure to check out Beverly’s Cookbook  A Lifetime of Recipes.

Angel Food Cake

Dieting can be a joy with this cake. Seconds allowed!

  • 10 egg whites, at room temperature
  • 1 ¼ tsp. cream of tartar
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • ½ tsp. almond extract
  • 1 ¼ cups sugar
  • 1 cup flour (cake flour is best)
  • 1 cup raspberries, rinsed and drained

Raspberry Amaretto Sauce (recipe follows)

Preheat oven to 325⁰. Beat egg white, cream of tartar, and salt with an electric mixer until they form soft peaks. Continue to beat while adding the vanilla and almond extracts, followed by the sugar. Add sugar a little at a time. Continue to beat until peaks are stiff and shiny. Remove bowl from mixer. Sift flour over the top of the eggs, then sprinkle with raspberries. Gently fold into egg whites with a rubber spatula.

Spoon into ungreased tube pan and bake 40 minutes, until a wood pick inserted near the center comes out clean. Invert onto a wire rack. Cook completely, then invert and use spatula to loosen cake from pan.

Place serving plate upside down on top of cake pan. Hold firmly and turn over. Pull pan straight up, then remove tube insert. Slice cake and pour Raspberry Amaretto Sauce over each piece.

Raspberry Amaretto Sauce

  • 2 cups raspberries
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 4 Tbsp. amaretto

Rinse raspberries. Place in blender with remaining ingredients and puree until smooth. Pour through fine sieve to remove seeds.

The cookbook is called A Lifetime of Recipes and this recipe is on page 19. This recipe was shared by the author just for this blog, she is one of the best cooks I know.
