Strawberry Angel Food Cake is basically an Angel Food Cake topped with fresh strawberries.
Angel Food Cakes are light and airy cakes. Some say that this was the reason why it was named this way. The secret in making light cakes such as this is in the manner of preparation. To be particular, the egg whites need to be whisked until tiny spaces of air are produced. This also makes the mixture stiff. Another factor is the method of mixing the stiff egg white mixture with the other ingredients called Folding. This method allows the mixture to mix with the ingredients in a gentle manner (see cooking verbs). Through this method, the air inside the egg white mixture is preserved – which makes the cake airy and light when baked.
