HOW TO TEST TO SEE IF IT’S DONE: A thoroughly baked angel food cake has fully risen in the pan, has a dark golden-brown top covered with cracks that feel very dry, not sticky. This is the perfect time to test to see if it’s done. Gently press top of baked cake with your fingertips. If it springs back, the cake is fully baked. If your fingers leave an indentation, bake 10 minutes longer. Watch carefully to prevent overbaking and burning.
