Angel Food Cake, Pesach II (P, KLP)
Source: LA Times
Serves: 16

1-1/2 cups sugar
1-1/4 cups matzo cake meal
2 tablespoons orange zest, finely grated
1-3/4 cups egg whites, about 12 large
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons orange juice

Combine 3/4 cup sugar, matzo cake meal, and orange zest in bowl.

Beat egg whites and salt in large mixer bowl until soft peaks form. Gradually add remaining 1 cup sugar, 1/4 cup at a time, alternating with orange juice. Beat well after each addition. Continue beating until stiff peaks form.

Fold in matzo meal mixture, 1/4 at a time. Use 15 under-and-over strokes for each addition, slightly turning the bowl after each stroke. Fold an additional 10 strokes.

Pour batter into ungreased 10" tube pan. Bake at 325°F fifty minutes to an hour, or until cake springs back to touch. Remove from oven, immediately invert pan and cool.
