Angel Food Cake with Yolks
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
This cake comes out so light and fluffy, and is quite close to a classic angel food cake. But it uses just 3 eggs, and you don't have to waste the yolks! Please note that the prep time is hands-on time only. The cake does need ample cooling time before it is served.
