Gluten Free Angel Food Cake
In a standing mixer, beat 1 1/2 C egg whites (at room temperature for 30 minutes) with 1 1/2 t cream of tartar, 3/4 t salt and 3/4 t vanilla until soft peaks form.

In another bowl, mix 3/4 C xylitol, 1/4 C arrowroot or cornstarch & 3/4 C GF flour (I prefer Namaste or Cup4Cup).

When the egg whites are at the soft peaks stage add 1/2 C xylitol, 2 T at a time.

Beat until stiff peaks form.
Fold in flour mixture 1/2 C at a time.

Grease a 10" tube pan. Spoon in mixture. Place on lowest oven rack in a preheated oven 350° and cook for 45-50 minutes, or until done. Remove from oven and invert pan on a plate. Allow to cool for 1 hour. Carefully with a knife, slip around the edges and remove from pan.
