I wipe the mixing bowl, whisk and cake pan with a tissue soaked in vinegar. This means you can hand whisk the egg whites in minutes, and the de-greasing effect of the vinegar means you can use any old cake pan - doesn't have to be a tube tin.

Hope that helps!

for the Press on the solids to squeeze out as much liquid as possible step a chinois or a China cap really helps.

appearance will hold up longer than taste/texture.

two days in advance max - allow to cool _thoroughly_ and then keep covered.

less time if you're in high humidity. angel food has a fair amount of sugar which will absorb humidity out of the air and develop a wet surface.

Can I use fresh strawberries instead of frozen ones? If so do I cut the strawberries up first or just leave them whole while I boil them? I made the cake once and used fresh strawberries and I cut them up and my glaze looks different than yours.

When I was diagnosed with celiac I was looking for recipes which might convert easily in a gluten-free form. This one works great and I have been making it for years.
Just exchange the wheat flour against an equal amount [cups] of sweet rice flour and the result is a fantastic gluten free angel food cake. Some liked it even better than the wheat version.
[Thank you Michael, for adding all you explanations to the recipes, that makes it so much easier to convert them for people with celiac Big smile]
