angel food cake

Angel Food cake, or Angel cake, is a type of sponge cake originally from North America. It is named because of its airy lightness that was said to be the “food of the angels.”

What a beautiful name….

It’s mainly made with egg whites and no fat, a great solution when you want a dessert but don’t want something rich that will weigh you down. On the other hand, it also makes a great base for all sorts of custards, sauces and icings, as well as fruit compotes. But with this name…of course, it had to be white, so we did this one with coconut.
