I am not familiar with Swan potato starch flour and gluten-free resources are limited. I have potato starch and potato flour and there is a real difference. The flour seems a bit heavy for angel food. Could potato starch be used in place? I do know that you can make sponge cake using potato starch. I like angel food cake for fresh strawberries and would like to try this.

Im sure you can use any brand of potato starch flour you like.

The recipe came right off the box of the brand that was avail to me. I didnt have to alter it in anyway. Tastes better then any store bought angel food cake. Light and fluffy and moist :D Just make sure you really whip the egg whites until they are white and fluffy, kinda reminds you of a big bowl of mashed potatos.

It tasted great plain and or using it for strawberries and whipped cream hehe

I will soon attempt to take out the fresh lemon juice and replace with like a tsp of vanilla to make just a reg. angel food cake.

I will post the results of the attempt just as soon as I get around making another one.

hi,

I found another recipe for angel food cake it was great loved it only used twice as many eggs , will try this one for sure love angel food cake ,

the recipe I have uses 1/2 tsp almond extract and 1 tsp vanilla only complain my family had was they didnt think it had enough flavoring , texture was right on though so will increase the vanilla by another 1/2 tsp next time.

maybe this will help you when you want to change to the vanilla . ty sounds good .
