PER LA ANGEL FOOD CAKE (doses for a mold 22 cm)
360 grams of egg whites at room temperature
150 grams of flour (00)
300 grams caster sugar cash
5 grams of cream of tartar
10 ml Cointreau or Amaretto
2 grams of organic lemon peel grated
a pinch of salt
FOR CREAM Mascarpone
250 grams mascarpone
150 ml of cream
1 teaspoon organic vanilla extract
1 tablespoon Cointreau or Amaretto
icing sugar, to taste (depends on how much you want it sweet)
fresh blueberries, to taste
Before you start preparing the Angel food cake, look at the VIDEO RECIPE step by step of the procedure. Whip until stiff egg whites with half the quantity of sugar indicated. Mix together in a bowl the remaining sugar, the flour, cream of tartar, the salt and the grated lemon rind and mix everything with care. Then join it all to the egg whites with the help of a spatula, making a top-down movement so you don't disassemble the egg whites and get a homogeneous dough.
Finally, Add the liqueur. Pour the dough into a dough mold (plain or decorated, like the one for bundt cake) without butter. Bake at 170 degrees for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and invert the mold on a wire rack, leaving him upside down until cool. To unmold the cake, pass a knife along the edges of the mould: the cake will come off smoothly.
For coverage, work the mascarpone until smooth. Whip the cream with the sugar and blend it with mascarpone, then add the liqueur. Cover the cake with the cream and cheese mixture with the help of a spatula, leaving well evident signs of spatulate, for a nice decorative effect. Garnish with blueberries, Sprinkle with icing sugar and serve. Bon appétit!
