Angel Food Cake
9 egg whites in room temperature
1½ teaspoons vanilla extract
¾ teaspoon cream of tartar
1 cup + 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
¾ cup cake flour
1 tablespoon powdered sugar
Strawberries and Cream Filling
2 cups heavy whipping cream, chilled
6 tablespoons powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups diced strawberries
Powdered sugar for dusting and strawberry slices for garnish
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 15x10-inch baking pan with waxed paper and grease lightly with cooking spray. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, Beat egg whites, vanilla and cream of tartar using an electric mixer on medium speed until soft peaks form. Add sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time, on high until stiff glossy peaks form and sugar is dissolved. Gently fold in flour, ¼ cup at a time, taking care not to deflate the egg whites.
Spread batter in an even layer into prepared pan using a spatula. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched. Remove from oven and cool for while, around 5 minutes.
Lay a clean kitchen towel on a flat work surface and dust with 1 tablespoon powdered sugar. Turn the cake out onto the kitchen towel and gently peel off waxed paper. Roll up the warm cake in the towel jelly-roll style, starting with a short side. Cool completely on a wire rack.
While waiting for the roll to cool down, beat the cream on medium speed until it begins to thicken. Add powdered sugar and vanilla; increase the speed to medium-high and beat until soft peaks form. Gently fold in the strawberries. Chill in the refrigerator until ready to use.
Carefully unroll the angel food cake on a flat surface. Spread filling on top of the cake to within ½-inch of edges. Gently roll up again and place seam side down on a serving plate. Sprinkle top with powdered sugar and garnish with strawberry slices, if desired. Cover leftover with plastic wrap and keep in the refrigerator.
