HWhen we think of summers growing up we think of angel food cake. There’s something about the lighter-than-air cake that, when paired with berries, immediately takes us back to all those hot days when angel food cake was just the thing to satiate our sweet tooth without being too heavy in the heat. Well we’ve gone a couple steps further than a simple angel cake and some fruit, but the updates we’ve made have really catapulted this dish into our top tier of favorites, plus, you can make this any time of year.
