    Sift 6 times:
    ½ cup sifted potato starch flour
    1/3 cup cornstarch
    1/3 cup powdered sugar

    Sift potato starch flour, cornstarch and powdered sugar 6 times. Set (½ cup) aside. Beat egg whites until foamy. Add cream of tartar, salt & flavorings. Continue beating until stiff. Add sugar 2 tablespoons at a time and continue beating until very stiff. Sift (½ cup) sifted ingredients over egg whites a little at a time, folding in with a wire egg beater or large spoon. turn bowl often. Put batter in ungreased tube pan. Gently cut through batter to level and prevent large holes.

    Bake:
    Slightly less than 400 degrees for 30 minutes (put a piece of foil on top after 15 minutes to prevent burning). Hang upside down overnight. You may frost with a butter icing when cooled, serve plain, or add sliced strawberries and top with Cool Whip. Store in the refrigerator.

    Variations: Chocolate flavor add 1 heaping tablespoon of cocoa.
    Pink Angel Cake: Add 1 heaping tablespoon of mixed fruit Jello powder.

    Quite good and fairly easy. Not super-sweet. A little denser than a wheat-flour angel food cake, but only a little. Perfect for dipping in chocolate fondue. Next time I make it, I'll probably go a little heavier on the almond.

    Celiac.com's Founder and CEO, Scott was diagnosed with celiac disease  in 1994, and, due to the nearly total lack of information available at that time, was forced to become an expert on the disease in order to recover. Scott launched the site that later became Celiac.com in 1995 "To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives."  In 1998 he founded The Gluten-Free Mall which he sold in 2014. He is co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.
