It is well-known that angel food cake originated in the United States in the mid 1800’s. What is not certain is where and by whom this light and fluffy cake was created.
Some historians think that the first angel food cakes were probably baked by African American slaves from the South because making this cake required a strong beating arm and lots of labor to whip the air into the egg whites.
The one thing that historians do agree on is that the invention of the rotary egg beater led to a jump in popularity of this wonderful cake! The rotary egg beater was patented in 1865 and quickly became a favorite tool in the kitchen. Since making angel food cake requires whipping egg whites until they are stiff, the rotary egg beater eliminated a lot of the hard work, resulting in the angel food cake becoming very popular. Fun fact: the 1897 Sears Catalog sold a Dover Egg Beater for 9 cents!
