Angel Food Cake

By February 17, 2010Baking, Cake, Dessert

Many years ago, my husband’s Aunt gave me her Angel Food Cake recipe. I have baked it many times, and we always enjoy it.

This particular recipe takes a little work, but is definitely well worth it. You can easily buy a box mix, that are actually very good too. As part of our Valentine Dinner, I served this cake with whipping cream and strawberry sauce.
