Betty Crocker Angel Food Cake

In our house, we make birthday cakes for each other. Many people are surprised by the fact that the little man does this for me, but hey, it’s only fair…I make one for his birthday. We both like this light and airy cake, rather than something laden with frosting…although his does have frosting. It’s a pour-on that I make, but still frosting.

Here’s the recipe:
1/2 c. granulated sugar
1/4 c. milk
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 c. confectioner’s sugar

Combine granulated sugar, butter, milk, and salt in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil vigorously for 1 minute. Remove from heat. Add vanilla and confectioner’s sugar and stir with a wire whisk until smooth. Pour over cake, letting it dribble down the sides. Do this quickly, before it cools too much. We usually pour any leftover amount into the hole in the middle.

I prefer my angel food cake with mashed raspberries, sweetened, and a little whipped cream.

What’s been reallllly annoying lately? Kroger doesn’t always have angel food cake mix. I don’t know why. It should always be there, especially when I need it! It’s not a bad option for dessert, depending on what you do to it – 140 calories per slice, 12 per cake. Those are decent-size pieces. It’s also fat free. Not sugar free though.

Back in the olden days, I made an angel food cake from a box and I guess I got bored with the whole cooking thang and didn’t beat it enough. It came out like a layer of clear pink rubber topped with a golden crust. Nasty! Lesson learned…follow the instructions on the box.

I just saw that I can buy a case of Betty Crocker Angel Food Cake Mix at Amazon. Who knew?
