angel food cake

{photo by me}…… oh wait, i have been. for the last week and a half at least?

i’ve just been loving all the great sales on berries the last little bit.
i’ve eaten so many strawberries lately that i think i just might turn into one.

a while back i asked my mother in law for the recipe for her yummy angel food cake. and, she laughed at me and told me it was a betty crocker cake mix. really? and, now it’s my go-to angel food cake. just buy a box, add water, mix for 1 1/2 minutes and throw it in the oven. i’m fine with that!

i usually add a little lemon zest and about a tablespoon or two of fresh lemon juice to the batter, and it tastes great and is easy peasy to make.

other favorites of mine on angel food cake are:
homemade whipped cream [you just can’t use cool whip, homemade is SO much better]
lemon curd, [stephanie shared an amazing recipe, click here]
berries, [of course]
and a little lemon zest to pretty it up!

et voila! the best angel food cake ever!

    I love angel food cake.

    Guilty secret? I sometimes buy a little loaf of the prepackaged fake strawberry flavored stuff from the grocery store and snarf it down without any help from anyone. My guy thinks it is the most bizarre/disgusting craving ever.

    I think I’ll upgrade to cake mix for sure. It is much more respectable.

    first of all, I LOVE your blog!! 😀 I never liked angel food cake–until I made the Betty Crocker one for a fondue night and now it’s my favorite! It’s so yummy! I’ll have to try it with the lemon! –and berries! 😀
