Tips for the best angel food cake

Use a stand mixer: This will make ALL the difference in this angel food cake recipe. Both the cake and the
Don’t grease your pans: I know, I know this is exactly the opposite of what I usually tell you but, angel food cake is such a light and airy cake that it needs the sides of the pan to cling to in order to rise. We recommend lining the bottom of the pan with parchment paper for an easier release!
Assemble close to serving: Fruit can get a little weird when it’s been sitting in cream for a long time. This cake is SO easy to put together, we recommend assembling it the day you’re serving it to keep everything as fresh as possible.

We hope you enjoy all the festive celebrations this week with this patriotic angel food cake! Happy 4th of July!

Ingredients

  • Baker’s Corner Angel Food Cake Mix
  • ⅓ cup strawberries
  • ⅓ cup blueberries
  • ⅓ cup raspberries
  • 1 pint Friendly Farms Heavy Whipping Cream
  • ¼ cup Baker’s Corner Powdered Sugar

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F and line two 8 inch pans with parchment paper. Set aside. Prepare the Baker’s Corner Angel Food Cake Mix according to directions and divide the batter evenly between the two pans, using an offset spatula to make sure it is even and flat. Bake for 25 minutes or until the tops of the cakes are light golden brown and a knife inserted into the middle comes out mostly clean.
  2. While the cakes cool, place the heavy whipping cream powder sugar, vanilla and a pinch of salt in the bowl of a stand mixer fit with the whisk attachment. Beat on high speed until the cream forms stiff peaks and is light and fluffy.
  3. Set one cake on a cake stand or serving plate and spread half of the sweetened whipped cream over the cake. Top with ½ of the berries. Place the second cake on top of the whipped cream and top with the remaining whipped cream and berries. Refrigerate before serving!
