Angel food cake Recipe

OK, for all of you fat bastards out there (myself included) I like lots am trying to lose a few pounds...

heres a low calorie recipe for angel food cake


1 1/4 cups (300 ml) all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups (375 ml) sugar, divided
1 1/2 cups (375 ml) egg whites (about 12 to 15 egg whites)
1 1/2 teaspoons (7 ml) cream of tartar
1/4 teaspoon (1 ml) salt
1 1/2 teaspoons (7 ml) vanilla or
1/2 teaspoon (2 ml) almond extract

Yield: 16 servings.
Per serving: About 124 cal, 4 g pro, 27 g carb, 0 g fat, 0 mg chol, 79 mg sod.

Mix flour and 1/2 cup (125 ml) sugar in small bowl. Set aside.

Place egg whites in mixer bowl. Attach bowl and wire whip to mixer. Gradually turn to Speed 6 and whip 30 to 60 seconds, or until egg whites are frothy.

Add cream of tartar, salt, and vanilla. Turn to Speed 8 and whip 2 to 2 1/2 minutes, or until whites are almost stiff but not dry. Turn to Speed 2. Gradually add remaining 1 cup (250 ml) sugar and mix about 1 minute. Stop and scrape bowl. Remove bowl from mixer. Spoon flour-sugar mixture, one-fourth at a time, over egg whites.
Fold in gently with spatula, just until blended. Pour batter into ungreased 10-inch (25-cm) tube pan. With knife, gently cut through batter to remove large air bubbles.

Bake at 375ºF (190ºC) for 35 minutes, or until crust is golden brown and cracks are very dry. Immediately invert cake onto funnel or soft drink bottle. Cool completely. Remove from pan.

Leo, this is about 1/2 the calories of regular cake..

(Maybe we need a food thread, andy? Ill moderate if wanted)

Bar B Barn Ribs

Myself, im a bruins fan.. we sometimes migrate north to montreal to catch a B's vs Canadiens game.. Nothing Better...

Also, nothing better than the Bar-B-Barn ribs....


This is a copy kat recipe from the famous Bar "B" Barn restaurant in Montreal. Simmer the ribs early in the day and then refrigerate or freeze until ready to BBQ. Serves 6


4 lbs Baby Back Ribs 2 kg
1/4 tsp Salt and Pepper 1 mL
1/2 tsp Thyme 2 mL
1 Small bay leaf 1
half Stock of celery, chopped half
half Onion, chopped half

1/4 tsp Salt and pepper 1 mL
1/4 tsp Garlic Powder 1 mL
1/4 tsp Cinnamon 1 mL
1/4 cup Ketchup 50 mL
1 cup Brown sugar 250 mL
1/2 cup Apple sauce 125 mL
3 tbsp Fresh lemon juice 50 mL


In a large saucepan or stock pot, cover ribs with cold water; add thyme, salt, pepper, bay leaf, celery and onion. Bring to gentle boil; cover, reduce heat and simmer for about 45 minutes or until ribs are tender. Remove ribs place in shallow glass dish. (Strain cooking liquid and refrigerate or freeze to use as soup stock).

In small saucepan, combine all the sauce ingredients, bring to gentle boil; reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes to blend flavors. Let cool.

Cut strips of ribs into serving portions of 3 to 4 ribs. Pour sauce all over ribs in dish and marinate for 3 to 4 hours in refrigerator or for 30 minutes at room temperature.

Remove ribs from sauce, reserving any remaining sauce. Cook ribs on greased grill over medium-hot coals or medium setting, turning and brushing occasionally with reserved sauce, for about 30 minutes or until meat is browned.
NOTE: Double the sauce recipe for lots of basting sauce. Buy lots of ribs when on special, they can be simmered, cooled, place in freezer bags and kept frozen until day of BBQ. On day of BBQ defrost ribs, add sauce and marinate as above.. Even the sauce; make ahead and freeze.
