I’ve always loved angel food cake and when I saw this recipe, I could not wait to try it. I love brown sugar and cinnamon. They turned out really well! Naturally, the brown sugar and cinnamon makes them taste completely different from regular angel food cake. But it’s a great twist and they are delicious! I really enjoyed them and they made for a great fat free treat. I had to freeze them immediately to keep from eating them all!
Brown Sugar Angel Food Cupcakes
Line 24 muffin pan cups with paper liners. Heat oven to 350°.
Press the brown sugar through a sieve; set aside.
Beat egg whites and vanilla together in a large mixing bowl on high just until foamy.
Add cream of tartar and salt. Beat until soft peaks form. (Soft peaks will curl over slightly.)
Sprinkle half of the sugar over the egg white mixture and beat until stiff peaks form.
Sift the cake flour and combine with remaining sugar and cinnamon.
Gently fold the sugar and flour mixture, a little at a time, into the egg white mixture.
Spoon into the prepared pans and bake for about 20 minutes, or until the cupcakes spring back when lightly touched with a finger.
Makes about 2 dozen cupcakes.
