Orange Almond Angel Food Cake


285 grams egg whites (about 10 egg whites)
125 grams sugar
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
115 grams of cake flour
1/2 tsp orange essence
1/4 tsp almond essence

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
Beat the egg whites and the cream of tartar until the whites are foamy. Then gradually add the sugar while the mixer is beating. Beat until the whites are stiff but not brittle. Then shortly beat in the orange and almond essence. Then sift the flour slowly over the egg whites a bit at a time and fold in.
Put into an ungreased 20 cm tube pan.
Bake for about 40 minutes. Then turn upside down to cool.
