We’ve been baking this recipe for 4 generations since at least the 1950s (and probably before). It used to be on the box, taking it off the box was a mistake IMHO. It should be returned to the box as it’s outstanding. Be sure everything is perfectly clean and follow the recipe. I’ve tried other brands of cake flour and always come back to Swan’s Down.

Gently spoon the batter into an ungreased angel food cake pan. Bake at 275 for 30 minutes, then increase the heat to 325 and bake for another 30 minutes, until golden on top and the cracks in the top are relatively dry.
