About National Angel Food Cake Day
Angel Food cake is a type of sponge cake that is made with egg whites, sugar, and flour. It is known for its light and airy texture and its delicate, sweet flavor. Unlike traditional cakes, which are made with butter or oil, Angel Food cake is made with only the egg whites, which gives it its unique texture and taste.
One of the key characteristics of Angel Food Cake is that it contains no fat, making it a bit lower in calories than regular cakes.
Angel Food cake is typically served as a dessert and it can be topped with whipped cream and fresh fruit, or drizzled with a sweet glaze or frosting. It is also sometimes used as the base for other desserts, such as trifles or parfaits.
Angel Food cake is also a popular choice for those following a Kosher or Halal diet as it does not contain any dairy or meat products.
The name "Angel Food" is said to be related to the light and fluffy texture of the cake, which is said to be as light and airy as angel's food.
