Kinnikinnick Angel Food Cake Mix
0

12 posts in this topic

I ordered four boxes of Kinnikinnick Angel Food Cake Mix, since I have not had my favorite cake in over six years and it's strawberry season here.

 

I am a bit dismayed when the additional ingredients call for 12 egg whites.  Not a worry about the egg whites, but what to do with a dozen egg yokes. Any suggestions?

 

 

I must have this cake with sugared strawberries and the juice and whipped cream and it summer and stuff.

Last time I made angel food cake I made lemon curd to top it with and ice cream with my yolks. You don't need an ice cream maker to make ice cream, just patience and an alarm to remind you to check on it frequently.

1st - you totally do not need to buy a mix for this sort of cake.  It's flour and sugar, and most flours work just fine.

2nd - when I did angel food cupcakes for my daughter's second birthday, I used the egg yolks to make homemade ice cream.  it was super yummy, and goes well with strawberries and angel food cake. ;)

We bought this mix last week at Green market, it was super yummy.

If you think the mix is good, try homemade - just as easy and more delicious!  I did a taste test. 

 

My favourite way to use egg yolks is in Zabaglione.  I sometimes throw in an extra couple of yolks into frittatas.  My husband would say chocolate pots de creme would be his first pick.  They are fantastic!  And don't forget Hollandaise.

I think I would just buy the egg whites in a carton and use what the package calls for...seems like it would be cheaper since you wouldn't be having to find a use for all the yolks.

I appreciate all the suggestions and have put some to use. But, this is by far the most practical use/method ever!  Duh... Thank you so must for that suggestion Karichelle! ;)   Some times we (or I) get too far into the forest to see the trees. :rolleyes:

Egg whites in a carton won't work.  Carton egg whites (by law) must be pasteurized.  The process of heating them for pateurization prevents them from being able to form stiff peaks when beating them to incorporate air.  (And I have verified this by personal experience. It really doesn't work.)

 

There's chemistry for ya!

I have used that cake mix with egg whites quite a few times and it turned out fine each time. It's possible I am buying unpasteurized egg whites (I never noticed) but egg whites from a carton can work.

 

That is my boys' favourite type of cake - puffy sugar cake. Yummy.  LOL

A regular cake can use eggs in a carton. Angel food cake is functionally different from a standard cake, and relies upon creating a matrix of egg protein and air to have its height and texture. If you've managed to whip carton egg whites into stiff peaks, well, more power to you, and congrats!

    • Mexican?
      Chipotle is one of my favorite places to eat, but it is a 50/50 chance of having a reaction due to cross-contamination.  Yes, they graciously make an effort to be gluten-free and will change gloves.  BUT, before that they used gloves and handled flour tortillas and then used same gloves to reach into the lettuce and cheese--voila--cross-contaminated food.  Changing gloves for you does not avoid this cross-contamination problem.  I started having reactions and my daughter advised me to avoid all the corn products there because of what she read on their website about allergens--so no more chips, or crispy taco shells, or corn.  I also avoid the green salsa and the pico de gallo--not that I am aware of cross contamination but she never eats that there and she has been successful at not having reactions, so that is what I do now and have had much success. Here is what I get:   burrito bowl with either white or brown cilantro lime rice, grilled veggies, black beans, barbacoa, red salsa, cheese, sour cream, guacamole, and lettuce on top.  So GOOD! and so far, safe for me.
    • I'm actually scared to go to the doctor and could use some advice
      Hi Elle.   To be honest, to this day I am not sure if I actually had zoster sine herpete.  It was one of several suggestions by bewildered doctors.  What I can tell you is that I had to have MRIs  because one doctor thought I might have trapped nerve in my spine and I thought it would reveal something dreadful being the sort of person who gets weird nerve sensations - and it didn't reveal a thing.   It was unsettling to have symptoms like that for so long but what made me think my brother in law might have been right was because the worst of the symptoms lasted a year which I gather is pretty typical (but don't panic, because they can go a lot faster!)   My nutritionalist told me that if we get run down we are more prone to shingles so that is something to watch. Easy to say (and I'm speaking to myself here!) try not to spend too much time by yourself worrying about these things because anxiety never helps with nerve pain. I found that rest was very beneficial so I would recommend you try to get as much of that as you can.  Also, someone suggested a warm bath for 20 minutes with some Epsom salts.  That helped too. As I say, just one reason you might be getting this pain but I would continue with the investigations and perhaps mention the pain to your doctor and ask if it could be shingles.      
    • Rudy's Not Gluten Free
      Rudy's is one of my favorite places to eat, but you do have to be VERY careful due to cross-contamination.  I always get the cutter's choice brisket, some form of potatoes (new potatoes or baked potato), pinto beans, 3-bean salad and use generous slathering of their regular BBQ sauce, not the Sissy Sauce.   My daughter has gotten sick a couple of times dining with us at Rudy's, but we have narrowed down the culprit to cross contamination.  She usually orders the stuffed baked potato, gets brisket (chopped up)--not the chopped BBQ, and asks them to use a new plastic knife to  cut open the potato.  They use tissue to pick up the chopped meat and put it on the potato which also comes with sour cream, butter/margarine, and grated cheddar cheese.  They have always been very courteous about accommodating us.  This has eliminated my daughter from having reactions.  (The regular metal knife had been used on bread.)  I also reach over the tray as it is being filled and place one of their paper tissues over my meat or potato so that when they place my husband's bread slices or sandwich (made with regular bread), crumbs won't get on my food.  I am so thankful for Rudy's--it is so good--and with taking these precautions, I believe it is relatively safe.  
    • I'm actually scared to go to the doctor and could use some advice
      Thank you, squirmingitch. I'll pass that on to Mom, too. Cristiana, did they ever determine what caused your nerve pain or do you now think it was related to Celiac? That form of shingles sounds awful (well, any form sounds awful - my mom's had it 3 times!) and fortunately I do not think that's what's ailing me.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
