Food Storage for $5.00 a Week

Week 15: 50 lbs. wheat

*Note: This plan should be enough to sustain two people for one year. For every two people in your family add $5.00 more and double the amount of the item you are buying that week.

Remember to date each item when you buy it and use the oldest first.*

Wheat Angel Food/Sponge Cake

Sift flour and salt together twice. Set aside. In separate bowl, beat with mixer the egg yolks, water, sugar, and flavorings for 5-7 minutes. Mixture will be very thick and creamy. Add flour and salt mixture gradually, continuing to beat with mixer. Beat egg whites and cream of tarter together until stiff. Do not allow whites to stand, but fold immediately into first mixture. Bake in ungreased angel food pan for 1 hour and 10 minutes (or until it springs back when lightly touched) at 325 to 350. Invert pan and cool for 1 hours before removing cake from pan.

Note: We have made this many times and it is delicious. We serve it with fresh strawberries and whipped cream.
