Fluffy Cloud Cake Recipe


  • Cake:
    • 1 1/4 cups cake flour
    • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar (divided)
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1 tablespoon baking powder
    • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
    • 5 large egg yolks
    • 3/4 cup water
    • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    • 7 large egg whites
    • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • Frosting (Optional):
    • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
    • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Prepare the Ingredients:
    • Preheat your oven to 325°F (165°C).
    • Separate the egg yolks and egg whites into two large bowls.
  2. Mix the Dry Ingredients:
    • In a medium bowl, whisk together the cake flour, 3/4 cup of granulated sugar, salt, and baking powder.
  3. Combine Wet Ingredients:
    • In the bowl with the egg yolks, add vegetable oil, water, and vanilla extract. Mix well until combined.
  4. Combine Dry and Wet Ingredients:
    • Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture, stirring until smooth and well blended.
  5. Beat Egg Whites:
    • In the separate bowl with the egg whites, add cream of tartar. Use an electric mixer to beat the egg whites until soft peaks form.
    • Gradually add the remaining 3/4 cup of granulated sugar while continuing to beat until stiff peaks form.
  6. Fold Egg Whites:
    • Gently fold the beaten egg whites into the batter, being careful not to deflate the mixture. Use a spatula and fold until no white streaks remain.
  7. Bake the Cake:
    • Pour the batter into an ungreased 10-inch tube pan (angel food cake pan).
    • Bake for 55-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
    • Invert the pan immediately after removing it from the oven and let it cool completely upside down.
  8. Prepare the Frosting (Optional):
    • In a chilled mixing bowl, beat the heavy whipping cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract until stiff peaks form.
  9. Assemble the Cake:
    • Once the cake is completely cool, carefully run a knife around the edges of the pan to release the cake.
    • If using frosting, spread the whipped cream frosting evenly over the top and sides of the cake.
  10. Serve and Enjoy:
    • Slice the cake and enjoy your fluffy, cloud-like dessert!


  • Make sure to handle the egg whites gently to maintain their volume.
  • Cooling the cake upside down helps maintain its height and fluffiness.
  • This cake pairs wonderfully with fresh berries or a light fruit compote.
