Eating Like The Angels
One of our special treats is Angel Food Cake with fresh fruit on it. My favorite is strawberries but we will put other fruit on it and be happy. No whipped cream or sauces on top. Just cake and fruit.
We have been buying a loaf Angel Food Cake at our little store. One day a box Angel Food Cake found its way into our grocery cart. After looking through about fifty different recipes to make Angel Food Cake from scratch, I decided I didn't have a strong desire for homemade cake. A box mix sounds totally acceptable.
Having never made an Angel Food Cake, I learned to make do with the equipment I had on hand. The instructions were Do Not use plastic bowl (that is all we have here; we are both clumsy and tend to break things more than the average person), so I used our larger pan. It almost was not large enough.
Following the directions to the letter, something new for me, when the mix was ready to bake I realized I did not have a pan large enough so I used the bottom broiler pan. Even at that, the large broiler pan was just barely large enough for all the mix.
When it looked done, ten minutes longer than what the directions called for, I removed the pan from the oven and turned it upside down as per instructions.
The Angel Food Cake was just as good as the one we have been buying at the store. Hubby thinks I am a wonder and I will let him think that. He is giving the thumbs-up to the cake just out of the oven.
