Angel Food Cake

image_pdfimage_print

It’s been raining for days here in Northern California. Days and days. While there are plenty of practical things I could be doing, the rain always makes me want to bake! The tastiest angel food cake came from this past week’s weather.

Looking for a light, airy cake? This is it. Slightly more dense than the original angel food cake, this one with hold together well when topped with whipped cream, puddings, fruit, etc. Most angel food cakes get soggy once a topping is added. Not this one! I made this cake and put it into a trifle. Even with all the layers, the cake held its form. How cool is that??

Sifting gets any lumps out.

This recipe is gluten free and dairy free too. Not so common with angel food cakes.

Blend the egg whites on high until frothy and thick.

Next I want to try it as a strawberry short cake!

Mmmm, just out of the oven!

Enjoy this sweet recipe and tell me what you think. I love feedback!
