Bill’s Angel Food Cake

Posted by Solitary Dancer on March 10, 2006

It only has 3g of Carbohydrates and 124 calories for a 1/12th size piece of a whole bundt cake. It uses a powder called Whey Protein Isolate in place of flour.

BILL’S ANGEL FOOD CAKE  (LOW CARB)

1C      Whey Protein Isolate
2tsp      Baking Powder (sifted)
1/8 tsp      Salt
½ tsp      Cream of Tartar
5 lg      Eggs (separated)
2 tsp      Vanilla Extract
1 Tbs      Grated Lemon Rind (fine grate)
1 tsp      Lemon Extract
½ C      Heavy Cream
¼ C      Water
6 Tbs      Splenda

Glaze
2 Oz      Heavy Cream
2 Tbs      Butter
1 tsp      Vanilla or Lemon Extract
3 Oz      Cream Cheese

PREPARATION

Preheat the oven to 300° F. Spray a Bundt pan with cooking spray. Sift the protein powder, baking powder, and salt. Set this aside. Use a large bowl to beat the eggs whites and the cream of Tartar until stiff. Use a second bowl to beat the egg yolks, sweetener, extracts, and lemon peel together, now beat in the water and the cream, finally beat in the dry ingredients. Fold this mixture in to the stiffened egg white mixture very carefully. Spoon this final mixture into the bundt pan that has previously been coated with cooking spray. Bake this for forty-five (45) minutes. After cooking let the cake stand for ten minutes to cool some and hopefully pull away from the pan sides a little. Them invert the bundt pan onto a plate, gently tap the bottom of the pan a couple times and (hopefully) lift the pan off leaving a nicely shaped cake. This can be tricky. It is something that comes with experience.
For the glaze, beat the cream, butter, cream cheese, and extracts together If the mixture is to thick for your liking add some extra cream about a table spoon at a time. Drizzle the glaze over the cooled cake. You should wind up with a cake that cuts to 12 slices that are about 124 calories each. The slices will also have about 12g fat, 39g protein, 3g carbohydrates, a trace of dietary fiber, 111mg cholesterol, and 173mg sodium.

This cake is worth the effort. I like to put a few sliced peaches or strawberries and a bit of whipped cream on a slice.
