One of the easiest is this one on allrecipes.
Yellow Angel Food Cake - Allrecipes

For just a few people, I follow this recipe:
5-1/4 egg whites
1/2 t cream of tartar
1/4 pinch salt
1/4 C and 3 T white sugar
1/4 C and 2 t cake flour
2 T and 3/4 t confectioners' sugar
1/4 t vanilla

Preheat oven to 350
Sift cake flour and confectioners sugar together 5 times and set aside.
In a large clean bowl, whip egg whites with a pinch of salt until foamy.
Add cream of tartar and continue beating until soft peaks form.
Gradually add sugar while beating, and continue to beat until very
stiff. Add vanilla. Quickly fold in flour mixture. Pour into muffin tins.
Bake until golden brown

I'm usually a scratch baker, but honestly, I don't see anything wrong with a package angel cake mix. They come out great and you don't need to worry that your egg whites will fail to beat up. Just invest in a good tube pan, and invert it over a bottle to cool.

OOHHH, I remember waking up every year on my birthday and seeing My cake on top of that old pop bottle!
