Pam's Angel Food Cake

The perfect way to try out our newest wheat - Mediterranean. It hasn't been grown or tasted for over 50 years! Pam, our neighbor at Abby Jane Bakeshop, has graciously shared her recipe with you all. Enjoy!

Weighing ingredients is the way to go - it's a good habit to get into and will provide more consistent results. Here is the scale we use.

120gBSMSonora '00' orMediterranean '00'

298g Sugar

425g Egg Whites

1/2tsp Salt

1tsp Vanilla Extract

1 1/2tsp Tartar


1. Combine half of the sugar and flour. Set aside.

2. Combine egg whites, salt and vanilla. Whip until frothy, add tartar, whip to stiff peaks.

3. Add remaining sugar, 1 spoonful at a time, until glossy.

4. Fold in dry ingredients a little at a time until no lumps remain.

5. Bake at 300F for 30min. Rotate for an additional 10min, or until edges appear golden and the center is cooked through.

6. Allow cake to cool UPSIDE DOWN at room temperature.


No need to oil or butter your pan - it can cause unwanted sponge shrinkage!

A bundt pan is great, but use what you already have in your kitchen!

Be sure to cool the cake upside down - this prevents the sponge from collapsing. Then simply run a knife around the edges of the pan once cooled to remove.

Excellent quality.

All-Purpose 'Standard' Blend

The last two orders were incorrect. First order we ordered 3, 5lb All Purpose flower we got 2 1/2lb instead. We were charged the higher price. Second ordered we ordered 6, 5lb All Purpose flower and we got 6, 2 1/2lb instead.We were charged the higher price again. We would love a response to this problem. [****] Doyce

These make the best hummus.

Canned chickpeas just don’t measure up. These, plus Soom Tahini, plus a proprietary blend of citrus juice 🍋, olive oil, diced chilis 🌶 and spices, make the best hummus ever. And don’t even get me started on couscous salad. Happy and satisfied customer. Will absolutely order again.

I’m enjoying using your flours again especially to make breads of Italian and French parameters and types of European flours, learning curves!

Outstanding! Nutty flavor!

Wow! I have every wheat grain Barton offers and several not offered but this is my favorite! This has a beautiful nutty taste unique to it. I wish berries were available!!! Outstanding and well worth your trying it.
