Angel Food Cake
12 egg whites
1 1/2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 cup sifted cake flour
3/4 cup granulated sugar
Oven:  375*

Sift the flour and 3/4 cup sugar together 3 times; set aside.  In large deep bowl, beat whites with cream of tartar, salt and vanilla until soft peaks form. Slowly add remaining sugar a few tablespoons at a time, beating until peaks are stiff. Add flour mixture by sifting a quarter of the mixture over egg white mixture and gently folding in.  Repeat until all flour mixture has been incorporated.  Bake in an ungreased 10-inch tube pan for 35-40 minutes or until done.  Invert in pan to cool.
* For cupcakes: preheat oven to 350, fill cupcake liners 2/3 full and bake 20-25 minutes. Cool completely before removing from liners.
