Just looking at my latest Memorial Day BBQ Recipe Roundup post made my eyes full! Although I do love my share of sugar, chocolate, cookies, and cakes, I was in the mood for something lighter, like a classic Angel Food Cake. Not only is it one of my mom’s favorite cakes but it is also my best friend’s dad’s dessert of choice, a usual guest at our family events like our recent barbecue. (If you’ve read more of my recipe posts, you’ll discover that my mom has many “favorite” desserts.) This recipe was pretty intricate because a traditional Angel Food cake is so perfectly light from its fluffy batter, which must be handled gently, similar to that of a souffle. I used a typical tube pan as my cake mold, one of my latest baking gadgets, and the cake expanded enormously in the oven! In order to keep the cake tall, make sure to cool it upside down…that way, you’ll preserve the beautiful Angel Food picture-perfect image! The vanilla cake itself was amazing, especially with berries and whipped cream, or my favorite, cool whip! This delectable cake makes a great party treat and also happens to be not so damaging to your blood sugar levels! Enjoy…this cake really is delicious!!
Recipe: Angel Food Cake 101
**NOTE: This angel food recipe is delicious and easy to follow with the step-by-step pictures, but I honestly I suggest saving yourself the trouble and considering just using a cake mix…you get the same home-baked feeling without time-consuming steps and without using a store-bought cake!….BUT, if you feel like a daring baker and decide to make the full recipe, make sure to let the cake cool upside down!!!
