The ultimate summer sweet from the bakery is angel food cake! What can be wrong with light, sweet cake that’s fat-free and can pair with so many fun summer fruits?
We have an exclusive recipe for angel food cake that gives you the right amount of sugar for your sweet tooth. Our chefs mix and bake these, so you know they’re fresh. It’s our number one selling item for the summer! Our angel food cake comes in a large 12 ounce size or 7 ounces for a smaller get-together.
There are so many ways to enjoy angel food cake:
- Iced with a powdered sugar icing brings back memories for me of the birthday cakes of my past. My mother would bake the angel food cake from scratch, spread icing over the entire cake and serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. The requirement is you must eat this while sitting outside on a picnic table enjoying the summer sun!
- Slice up strawberries and add a tablespoon or two of sugar – mix it up and let it sit for an hour or two to let those strawberry juices start to flow. Spoon those berries on top of the cake and add a dollop of fresh whipped cream…yum!
- Slice the cake horizontally and add layers of lemon curd and fresh berries. I love these kinds of desserts – buying the components, but still putting your personal spin on the end result.
If you’re looking for a more intricate dessert, give our recipe for Angel Berry Trifle a try. It features layers of berries, custard and Lunds and Byerly's Angel Food Cake.
