This is a great basic recipe. When making this cake I used an amalgamation between this recipe and the Classic Angel Food Cake from CL April 2003. In addition I added 1/2 tsp almond extract and 1 tsp clear vanilla which I think just gives it a little extra flavor. I used 1 tsp cream of tartar, 1.5 tsp lemon juice since that's what the other recipe suggested. I don't know if it made any difference. The results were great. Super light and tasty.
