Wow, this is one great cake! I sort of did an amalgamation between this one and the Vanilla Bean Angel Food Cake from CL March 2006. To this recipe I added the beans from a 2" piece of vanilla bean and then cut the liquid vanilla down to 1tsp instead of 1.5 tsp. Although this really didn't matter and I think I'll add the whole 1.5 tsp next time. The almond extract gave it a nice little something extra. Usually angel food cake on its own is fairly bland but this one is great. My kids are eating it plain without the berry topping. A keeper for sure.

Store-bought angel food cake doesn't hold a candle to homemade. If you've got an extra dozen eggs and you're comfortable whipping the whites to stiff peaks, you have to try this recipe! It is so good with fresh berries and a bit of whipped cream on the top. I made the recipe exactly as written. I found that it needed a few extra minutes in the oven.
