October 10, 2024 is National Angel Food Cake Day. An angel food cake is basically sponge cake, and it indeed looks a bit like a yellow sponge. It is made of flour, sugar and eggs and its special feature is its enormous fluffiness and lightness. That is also the reason why it is called angel’s food, assuming that such a cake is light enough to suit the tender gentle creatures up there.
However one does not have to be an angel to take part in National Angel Food Cake Day. It is easy to make and can be valorized with berries or other fruits, sauce, cream or anything you like. The secret for getting the angel’s food cake just so fluffy is to whip the egg white properly until it is truly stiff. There is a pendant to angel’s food cake called devil’s food cake and it is sort of a chocolate cake.
