1 1/2 c. powdered sugar
1 c. cake flour
12 egg whites
1 1/2 tsp. cream of tartar
1 c. granualted sugar
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. almond extract
1/4 tsp. salt
Strawberry Sauce
2 c. strawberries
2/3 c. sugar
1 tsp. cornstarch

Place oven rack in lowest position. Heat oven to 375. Mix powdered sugar and flour. Beat egg whites and cream of tartar in medium bowl on medium speed until foamy. Beat in granulated sugar on high speed, 2 T. at a time, adding vanilla, almond extract and salt with the last addition of sugar. Continue beating until stiff and glossy. Do not underbeat.
Sprinkle sugar-flour mixture, 1/4 c. at a time, over meringue, folding in just until sugar-flour mixture disappears. Push batter into ungreased tube pan. Cut gently through batter.
Bake 30-35 min. or until cracks in cake feel dry and top springs back when touched. Turn pan upside down onto funnel. Let rest 2 hours or until completely cooled. Remove from pan and slice the cake across the middle. Fill the middle with fresh cut strawberries and my strawberry sauce. Replace the top half of the cake and drizzle more sauce when serving.

Strawberry Sauce:
Put strawberries in a processor and puree. Place puree in a pot on the stove with sugar and cornstarch and boil, then reduce to a simmer and cool.

Personal Notes:
For James Ferchen, Chris' grandpa.
Grandpa, aka Pop Pop loves Grandma's Angel Food Cake with strawberries. He requests it for his birthday cake every year. It's perfect for Grandpa's April birthday. I added my strawberry sauce to this recipe to make it extra special. Next April we'll be celebrating Grandpa's 90th birthday.
