This is one of the few thing that I can't think of a replacement for.<br><br><br><br>
There are lots of great vegan cake recipes out there though <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I stumped Chef Deb! I didn't think it could be done. Here's a link to her response. She suggested a sponge cake instead.<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.vegsource.com/talk/recipes/messages/73434.html" target="_blank">http://www.vegsource.com/talk/recipe...ges/73434.html</a>

I loved angelfood cake when I was a child, it was my absolute favorite kind of cake. I've been waiting patiently for someone to post a idea, or recipe before my birthday. I'm so disapointed.

yes, sadly, there really isn't a good vegan replacement for egg whites. soilman has had a lot to say about the inadequacies of egg replacers, and i suspect the problem is replicating the gelling properties of egg whites. nothing vegan can really fluff up and congeal quite the way egg whites do. sorry. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">

That's what I was afraid of. I used to love angel food cake with strawberries. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">

what about <a href="http://www.vegan-food.net/index.cgi?301" target="_blank">veganfood's angelfood</a> recipe? the note sounds like it isn't a tried and true recipe, but it's an idea. maybe somebody should try it and report back on the results, then share any suggestions for improvements. i'm too much of a lazy cook to try it myself, but i hope it'll work for you guys.

Here is my strawberry shortcake recipe (real shortcake). It's good <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
1 1/4 cup flour<br><br>
3 T sweetener<br><br>
1/2 T baking powder<br><br>
1/8 tsp salt<br><br>
1/4 cup vegan margarine<br><br>
1/8 cup chopped pecans<br><br>
1/2 cup soymilk<br><br>
mix the first 4 ingredients together. Cut in the margarine with a pastry blender or knives. Then stir in the nuts and soy milk.<br><br>
Form into a round cake and bake for about 15 to 20 minutes at 400.<br><br>
slice some strawberries and sprinkle a little sweetener on them.<br><br><br><br>
1/8 cup soy milk<br><br>
1-2 T sweetener<br><br>
1 tsp cornstarch<br><br>
drop of vanilla or lemon juice for flavour<br><br>
1/4 cup oil<br><br>
place the first four ingredients in a blender and begin to mix. slowly drizzle in the oil. blend until thick and cool for an hour<br><br>
spread the strawberries over the cake (you can layer it if you want) and then cover with the whipped topping

Shucks...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("> well, I'll make some other stuff. Hmm, sponge cake ..or shortcake... Yeah, egg replacer does not really replace all the qualities of eggs. Still hoping though.<br><br><br><br>
I'd try the vegan food recipe, but I'm afraid it might not work.<br><br><br><br>
Even if angel food has not been replicated, I think now is a good time to be vegan. All the thourghly decent margarines, organic produce, yogurt, wierd soy cheese, online veggie chatboards *big hugs to all*, soy milk....<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">
