Apple Spice Angel Food Cake

Cake Ingredients:

1/2 cup baker’s sugar

1 1/3 cups sifted cake flour

12 egg whites, at room temperature

3/4 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 teaspoons cream of tartar

1 1/2 cups baker’s sugar

3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

3 tablespoons Concentrated Spiced Apple Cider

1 tablespoon cinnamon

1/4 tablespoon ginger

1/4 tablespoon nutmeg



Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Combine 1/2 cup of sugar with the flour and sift together. Set aside.

Use whisk attachment to mix egg whites, salt, and cream of tartar in stand mixer.  Start low then raise to high as they foam, then change to medium and add the rest of the sugar (1 1/2 cups) a tablespoon at a time.

Whisk in the vanilla and continue to whisk until very thick, about 1 more minute. Sprinkle flour mixture over the egg whites in thirds and fold it into the batter with a rubber spatula.

Pour the batter into an ungreased 10-inch tube pan, smooth the top, and bake it for 35 to 40 minutes, until it springs back to the touch and the cracks appear dry – internal temperature should be around 206 degrees F. Remove the cake from the oven and invert the pan on a cooling rack until cool.


Cream Cheese Cinnamon Drizzle

8 oz cream cheese, room temperature

1/4 cup heavy cream

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Heat ingredients in a pan until nicely incorporated.  Remove to a bowl.


Spiced Apple Topping

1/4 cup butter

4 apples, cut into small pieces (I combine 2 tart and 2 sweet and that works very well)

1 teaspoon cinnamon

Dash of ginger

Dash of nutmeg

2 tablespoons Concentrated Spiced Apple Cider

1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Melt the butter in a pan, then add apples.  Sprinkle in the spices and stir the apples around until the spices are well distributed.  Once they start to all appear to be cooked a bit, add the cider and the vanilla.  Some people like more sauce for this, and if you decide you do, add more cider next time you make it.  Remove to a bowl.



To create the dish, take a slice of cake, drizzle it with warm cream cheese drizzle, then top with apple topping.

Another option,  is to heat up the apple topping with a LOT of sauce in the bottom of a bowl, and then put the cake on that.  It absorbs the sauce and gets even better.
