I found this recipe on a website for a ff passover angelfood cake and
it was wonderful!  Those who don't like matzo meal could, I'm certain,
substitute other flour.  It really was terrific- especially served
with fresh strawberries!

     1-1/2 cups sugar
     1-1/4 cups matzo cake meal
     2 Tbsp finely grated orange zest
     1-3/4 cups egg whites (about 12 large eggs)
     1/2 tsp salt
     2 Tbsp orange juice

Combine 3/4 c sugar, matzo cake meal & orange zest in bowl. Beat egg whites
and salt in large mixer bowl until soft peaks form. Gradually add remaining
1 cup sugar, 1/4 cup at a time, alternating with orange juice. Beat well
after each addition. Continue beating until stiff peaks form.

Fold in matzo meal mixture, 1/4 at a time. Use 15 under-and-over strokes
for each addition, slightly turning the bowl after each stroke. Fold an
additional 10 strokes.

Pour batter into ungreased 10 inch tube pan. Bake at 325 degrees 50 minutes
to an hour, or until cake springs back to touch. Remove from oven,
immediately invert pan & cool.
