Angel food cake has consistently been my favourite cake of all time. Sure, I have not been 100% loyal to it . . . I’ve had my love affairs with Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cake, and Boston Creme Cake . . . but, I always come back to angel food cake! It is the ONE cake that I feel can be eaten without icing (*GASP*. . . NO ICING!?!? . . . or “frosting” for you non-Canadians), but it is equally delicious with a light whipping cream cover, or even better a whipping cream/yogurt covering!
I always requested angel food cake from my mom for my birthday cake, and now, I have discovered the BEST homemade recipe for Angel Food ever! You have to try it to see for yourself.
The best part about eating Angel Food Cake?? It is basically GUILT FREE! It is so low in calories, and fat that you can truely enjoy eating this cake . . .without feeling like you need to go to the gym for the next three hours!
