Angel Food Cake {3rd Time’s the Charm}

Angel food cake is a light, fluffy, fat free dessert cake that is delicious and really easy to make – IF you follow the recipe instructions and have some patience.

I don’t win them all in the kitchen. I think it would be stupid of me to think I would. I’ve seen my fair share of things that have gone wrong, flour explosions, and great concepts that landed a perfect spot in the trash can.

But, they say the third times the charm, and whoever ‘they’ are isn’t lying. I have been unsuccessful at both of my previous attempts at angel food cake. Seriously unsuccessful. I know what I needed to accomplish, worked diligently at the steps, and watched in horror as my cake cooled into a thin flat lump. Twice.

Perseverance wins out and I can’t deny that a carton of eggs that get cracked as they cross through the front door does help a lot with motivation.

Fruit toppings are a no go in this household, so I whipped together a quick chocolate topping by melting chocolate chips in warm heavy cream over a double boiler.

I had a cake once as a child that I thought was an angel food cake, but now I am not sure. It was so white on the inside, and light in the way an angel food cake is but this cake wasn’t what I can taste in my memories. It’s a vague memory so it’s hard to pinpoint if time or taste buds have changed it but maybe someday I’ll rediscover the recipe that remains in my memories.

Great. If it took you three times to make angel food cake, I can only imagine what kind of hell I'm going to have. My fiance's grandmother used to make the most amazing angel food cake, so now I have to live up to that standard. Yours looks sinfully delicious!
