Angel Food Deluxe - THM version
1/2 c. coconut flour
1 1/2 c. xylitol (finely ground into a powdered sugar consistency)
13 egg whites (don't throw out those wonderful yolks! save them for custards or breakfast!)
1 1/2 t. cream of tarter
1/2 t. gluccomannan
1/4 t. salt
1 c. xylitol (leave this granulated)
1 1/2 t. vanilla
1/2 t. almond extract
Stir together oat fiber, coconut flour, and powdered xylitol and set aside.
Beat egg whites, cream of tarter, gluccie, and salt until foamy (use metal bowl and metal whisks).
Take the 1 c. of granulated xylitol and add by 2 T. at a time while whipping until all the xylitol is added. Beat until stiff peaks.
Gently fold in vanilla & almond extract using a long metal utensil.
Gently fold in the dry ingredients (oat fiber, coconut flour, & powdered xylitol) 3/4 c. at a time. Fold very gently with a long metal utensil just until flour mixture disappears. Push batter into an UNGREASED tube pan. Gently cut through batter.
Bake 30 - 35 minutes @ 375° or until top springs back when touched. Immediately turn pan upside-down once removed from the oven and allow cake to cool upside-down for a few hrs.
To remove from pan, carefully run a long knife along the outside of the pan and around the tube in center. You should then be able to pull the insert out containing the cake. Run the knife along the bottom of the cake releasing it from the last part of the pan. Invert the cake onto the cake plate.
Gwen's Berry Sauce is absolutely perfect over this! Here is a link to her recipe: http://www.gwens-nest.com/family-favorite-recipes/sugar-free-berry-syrup-recipe/
A dollop of sweetened whipping cream is a perk. ;)
Note: Some people are very sensitive to xylitol which gives them tummy issues. If this is you, try using other forms of bulking sweeteners. However, I can't vouch for how the consistency will change with other sweeteners.
Note: Although I have not actually made one with this adjustment, you could turn this recipe to E Style by using 1 c. of Oat Flour in place of the Oat Fiber and Coconut Flour.
Please note that Oat Flour and Oat Fiber are two very different ingredients. :)
