Angel Food Cake, Orange (P, KLP, TNT)
Serves: 20

1-3/4 cups sugar (a bit less works fine)
1-1/4 cups matzo cake meal
2 tbsp. finely grated orange zest
1-3/4 cups egg whites (about 12 large eggs)
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. 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 50 minutes to an hour, or until cake springs back to touch. Remove from oven, immediately invert pan and cool.

Poster's Notes:
It really doesn't rise much.
