How to make it

  • In a clean mixing bowl, whisk the egg whites together with the cream of tartar and vanilla extract until foamy.
  • Add half of the confectioners sugar to the egg whites in stages while whisking.
  • Continue whisking until medium peaks form.
  • Sift the cake flour with the rest of the confectioner's sugar and the salt.
  • Fold the dry ingredients into the egg whites in stages.
  • Pour the batter into small cake molds and bake in a 350 degree oven until a skewer comes out clean; about 15-20 minutes.
  • Cool completely before unmolding.

  • For the lemon curd,
  • --------------------------
  • whisk together the egg yolks with the sugar and salt until creamy.
  • Add the lemon zest and juice and cook over a double-boiler until the mixture just starts to thicken.
  • Whisk the butter in by tablespoons over the double-boiler, and continue whisking until the curd thickens to your liking.
  • Cut the centers out of two angel food cakes and stack them with their wide ends touching.
  • Cover the outside of the cakes, except the top, with the whipped cream, and smooth it out evenly.
  • Pour the warm lemon curd into the top of the cake, cover the hole with the plugs of cake you cut out of the centers, and smooth whipped cream over the top.
  • When you cut into this cake, if the lemon curd is still warm it will run out onto the plate like a soft-boiled egg yolk.
  • If the lemon curd is chilled, it will simply sit there, but the gimmick is only slightly less enjoyable.

    Funny. When I was first married I used to make a angel food cake that you hollowed out but put chocolate whipped frosting inside then covered with more frosting.
