Angel food cake and pan

I wanted to make an angel food cake...but I don't have one of those special pans. Are they necessary?
And if not...do I need to adjust the bake time or temperature?

I often bake angel food cake batter in bread pans to carve into sheets of French toast. Bake time is about the same - until fully risen, golden brown, and firm to the tap on top. It makes divine French toast, and you can also layer two thin slices with a center layer of lemon curd, topped with whipped cream and fresh fruit compote. It also makes a beautiful base for "shortcake." Have fun with it!

Loaf/bread pan is the way to go and I have done it often to make half recipes with available egg whites. Think about it this way: the exposure to the hot oven air in an angel food cake tube pan is about the same width and depth as a loaf pan if you mentally "unwound" the tube pan.

P.S. Figure that one batch destined for a tube pan will about half fill 2 loaf pans. Perfect.
