Default Recipe Needed: Angel Food Cake

Does someone have a recipe for angel food cake using Splenda instead of
sugar. Regular bulk Splenda, not the half and half kind, please.

From the regular recipes, it looks like there isn't too much flour in
an angel food cake. Most of the volume is egg white. I'm just reluctant
to change sugar to Splenda as I don't know if the other proportions
would work.

TIA

I don't know if using 100% Splenda would change the texture/density or
not. My baker's instinct tell me it would, as Splenda doesn't provide
structure. This one uses sugar, but is only 13.8g CHO per 1/16 of a cake
(not a big piece). I haven't tried this recipe.

I'm sure you know this already, but an angel food cake must "hang" when
cooling. If your cake pan doesn't have little feet to invert the pan
when cooling, put it onto a glass bottle to cool. You'll get a lighter
cake that way.

Thanks. I looked there and there was one for chocolate angel food cake,
but not regular. We don't follow the high-fat diets, even though we low
carb.

Thanks, Vicki. That is about the carb count I've been looking for. I'll
have to wait until the fresh raspberries hit our market to try it.

I always invert my angel cake pan over a wine bottle. The little feet
don't work as well.

BTW, I use powdered egg whites for cakes, macaroons and meringues and
they work very well.

Before I got granulated and powdered erythritol, I used to bake with
xylitol, which is 40% less caloric and carby than sucrose. It bulks just
like sugar in baking. So does granulated erythritol, which is zero
calorie and carb, but it stayed gritty in a cheesecake recipe. It's
been fine for me in other baked goods, though. Both of these sugar
alchohols taste like sugar, not like artificial sweetener.

Susan


I appreciate the suggestion, but sugar alcohols aren't a good substitute
for us.

FTR, erythritol does not cause a laxative effect nor any gastric
distress like many SAs can. My family has no gastric effect from
xylitol either, but I can't speak more generally about it the way I
can about eryhtritol.

Susan



Not always true - I get gastric effects from pretty much any of the
sugar alcohols! I tried something that had only erythritol as a
sweetener and.... it was no different for me than any other sugar
alcohol.

I was able to use any of the sugar alcohols for quite some time without
any problem and I guess my body decided "enough" - or I was going
through enough of a constipation period that the sugar alcohols made me
"normal" again!!!

try adding minute tapioca at the bottom of the pie
shell before the filling

this absorbs the extra moisture and is quite
tastey too....... giving you a 'thicker' pie
filling

I made some wonderful strawberry/rhubarb

"something" (pie without any
crust, so sort of baked filling) this past week

with Xylitol for
sweetening (and rhubarb from my own garden).

Totally yummy, with no
aftertaste or GI effects.

I don't often bake desserts with a lot of

sweetener in them, but rhubarb
really needs it.

Uh, no pie shell, just buttered pan. ;-)

I'd be concerned about the carbs from the tapioca.

What I made was truly yummy. :-)

I used cinnamon, dried lemon peel, and the tiniest dash of salt.


Sounds interesting - why the salt?

I make a baby food cake that uses a ton of sugar and so i tried it with
splenda, the first piece while it was still warm was good, but once it
cooled it was as dry as sawdust. heating it didnt work margarine didnt
work it was worthless. So the splenda does change the texture/moisture.

She's lucky. If I put Splenda in anything that isn't primarily dairy,
it tastes to me like I'm sucking pennies.

Because years ago my mother taught me that salt is a flavor-enhancer,
and it can enhance the flavor of sweet foods just as it can that of
savories. The strawberries I was using were supermarket berries, so I
figured that a little boost might be in order.

Splenda is an artifical sweetener, IT IS NOT SUGAR. It IS made from
sugar, but if you look on the contents list, sugar is not mentioned
anywhere.

How wierd. I find that I have no problems with Splenda at all *except*
when it's in dairy. I have made cheesecake with Splenda and with
Diabetesweet and I find the Splenda leaves a tinny taste but the
Diabetesweet tastes just like sugar. It costs like diamonds, though g

DH finds absolutely no difference in either product.

I think everyone has differences in taste buds that account for one
person liking something and another not.
