Angel Food Cake is a popular sponge cake in the US. This light and airy cake is regarded as food for the angels, because of its properties.This type of cake resembles the texture of a famous mini sponge cake in the Philippines called “Mamon“.
The method in making an angel food cake is quite different from the other traditional cakes. The eggs (whites only) are whipped using an electric mixer until soft peaks form. This technique allows more air to enter the mixture — making the cake sponge-like.
I personally like Angel food Cake for its light texture. I enjoy eating this cake over a cup of brewed coffee. The recipe that we have here involves a simple Angel Food Cake topped with whipped cream and fresh strawberries. The topping makes the Angel Food Cake more indulging; it also adds flavor to the cake — making it more appealing to the taste buds.
