lemon angel food cake.

1/2 cup (62g) cake flour

1/4 tsp salt

6 egg whites

1/2 tsp cream of tartar

1/2 cup + 2 tbsp (128g) sugar

zest of one lemon

Oven 350 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. 

Whisk flour and salt together in a bowl and set aside. In the bowl of a stand mixer, add whites and cream of tartar. Beat on medium-high until soft peaks form. While still beating, slowly add in the sugar. Beat until stiff peaks form. Add in the lemon zest and beat to combine. Remove bowl from stand. 

Sprinkle 1/4 of flour mixture over the top of the egg whites. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold in the flour by cutting down the middle and coming up the sides. Continue in 3 more times with remaining flour. Once combined, gently spoon onto the baking sheet and smooth the top. Bake until golden brown and top springs back. About 15-20 minutes, depending on your oven. Let cool completely on the sheet then remove parchment from the bottom. Tear into pieces.

honeycomb candy.

1 1/2 cups (300g) sugar

1/2 cup (118ml) water

3 tbsp (63g) honey

1/3 cup (170g) corn syrup

4 tsp baking soda, sifted

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large saucepan, combine sugar, water, honey and corn syrup. Stir until combined. Boil over medium-high heat until it turn amber colored. Remove from heat then quickly whisk in the baking soda. It will foam up a lot, so only stir until you see no more spots of baking soda. Quickly pour into pan then do not touch until it has cooled completely. Break into small pieces.
