Cinnamon Brown Sugar Angel Food Cake, THM FP, DF, SF, GF

Angel Food Cakes are a delicious fluffy light dessert to add to any meal. These cakes are primarily made with egg whites, flour, and sugar. Did you know that you can make a sugar-free, gluten-free version that bakes and taste just like a regular one? And by adding extracts you can have any flavor you want

Bonus…..Keep reading and it will tell you how to make two flavors of cakes with the recipe on this blog post!

Below are a few of my favorites listed under the affiliate store I purchase them. 

This recipe uses Creamy Plant Protein Powder and Oat Fiber for the flour and on-plan sweetener for the sugar. I also used extracts to get the flavor I wanted. The Cinnamon Brown Sugar Cake is delicious with cooked apples.

Just a note on Oat Fiber…yes, you can buy any brand, but, let me tell you there is nothing like THM Oat Fiber. It is the best on the market. All others are dry and sawdust, pardon me, but it is TRUE!!!! THM Oat Fiber is the only kind I will buy…I will not waste my money on any other kind!

I knew that some people would asked for a plain version so I added the changes to make a plain vanilla version. Both turned out very well when I made them today. As you can see, on the plain one I did not get all the air bubbles out when I put the batter in the pan…that doesn’t affect the taste just the LOOKS!!!

WIth the Cinnamon Brown Sugar Angel Food Cake, I used my homemade Brown Sugar Sweetener but you can also use Swerve Brown Sweetener. When I made the plain version, I used Swerve Confectioners Sweetener and Gentle Sweet. The finished texture in both was the same!

Either versions of Angel Food Cake are delicious with Greek Yogurt and fruit. Berries will keep the dessert in a FP but apples/pears/pomegranates with be an E or carb source. The cake itself is a Fuel Pull.

In the recipe below, you will see the changes I made for the plain cake in bold italics. You will use the same amount of eggs, cream of tartar, Gentle Sweet, Protein Powder, and Oat Fiber but use more vanilla, omit the Brown Sugar Extract and cinnamon for the vanilla one. You get a bonus of two recipes in one!!!

Cinnamon Brown Sugar Angel Food Cake, THM FP, DF, SF, GF

vanilla cake changes in in parentheses
  • 2 1/2 cups egg whites, room temperature
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1/2 cup Gentle Sweet or Swerve Confectioners Sweetener
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla (1 1/2 teaspoons for regular)
  • 3/4 teaspoon Olive Nation Brown Sugar Extract (omit for regular flavored cake)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon (omit for regular flavored cake)
  • 1/3 cup THM Creamy Dreamy Plant Protein Powder
  • 1/2 cup Brown Sugar Sweetener or Swerve Brown Sweetener (Use Gentle Sweet for regular)
  • 1/3 cup THM Oat fiber
  • pinch of salt
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a grease-free mixer bowl beat egg whites until frothy. Add Cream of Tartar. Whip until semi-soft peaks form. Add 1/2 cup Gentle Sweet and extracts. Whip for 1 minute. In a separate bowl combine cinnamon, THM Creamy Dreamy Plant Protein Powder, Brown Sugar Sweetener, Oat Fiber, and salt . Carefully fold into beaten egg whites. Spoon cake batter into an angel food cake pan. Swirl knife through batter to remove air pockets. Bump cake pan on the counter to help release the air pockets. Bake cake on the lowest oven rack for 45-50 minutes. Remove from oven and turn cake upside down to cool completely. After cake is completely cooled…take a long knife and cut around the pan and the center. Flip cake onto a serving platter. 16 servings
  • A few things to remember when beating egg whites. You need to have grease-free bowls and beaters or you will not get the volume you want. Room temperature eggs will whip the best and fluffiest.
  • You can overbeat egg whites which will cause the cake to collapse as it cools.
  • The cake is a THM FP….but if you serve it with apples/pears/pomegranates it will be an E from the fruit.

I love my KitchenAid Mixer for cakes. I have a 6 quart mixer bowl and this recipe fills it to the top!! This is how the batter looks when it is ready to be put into the pan and baked.

The batter fills the Angel Food Cake Pan to the top. I should have bounced this pan on the counter a few times to help release the air bubbles. I did that with the other cake and I have a lot less air pockets. Air pockets only affect the looks not the taste.

Gentle Sweet is a great sweetener….it taste just like sugar but you don’t get the sugar-high from it.

THM Oat Fiber is the best on the market. It is the only one I will use.

  1. Would it ve possible to use the THM plain or vanilla protein powder? I live outside wUS, so no access to ordering the Creamy Dreamy, but I do have the regular proteins.

  2. Do you have any thoughts on how to determine if the cake is done? I live at ~5200ft so things frequently don’t bake the same time-wise. I read to cook Angel food to 200+, so I took it out at 200 & something like 50 or 55 minutes. The whole cake deflated either through poking the thermometer in it or bc wasn’t done. The top edges of the cake were burned on the outside but beautifully white like regular angel food on the inside; the rest of the cake was damp and pretty yellow like just didn’t bake enough. It fell apart coming out of the pan. It still tastes good enough for me to eat. Any ideas if it just needed to be baked longer or if poking it with the thermometer deflated it?
