WHY HOMEMADE ANGEL FOOD CAKE FOR STRAWBERRY ANGEL FOOD CAKE?
Technically, you can make this dessert with a storebought angel food cake. It will save you time and you’ll have Strawberry Angel Food Cake ready to go in no time at all. If you’re in a huge time crunch, I say go for it! But if you have the time (just a few minutes to prep and 30-35 minutes to bake), homemade angel food cake is where it’s at.
It’s like the difference between eating eggs from the grocery store versus eggs from the farmer’s market. They may look the same on the outside, but farmer’s market eggs just taste so much better. Homemade angel food cake is the same way. You just can’t beat the flavor!
THE HISTORY OF ANGEL FOOD CAKE
Other than “one of the best desserts ever” (personal opinion!), angel food cake is a dessert that originated in the United States in the late 19th century. It is a butterless cake that instead uses whipped egg whites to give it its form.
