MMMMMMM, Angel Food Cake with Mango Sauce!  Just look at all of that goodness. There’s something about the sweet, tender, spongy angel food cake with fresh strawberries and a mango sauce that makes your eyes roll back in your head with delight. I looooove how fresh it tastes. I love that you can actually taste the berries, cake and mangoes unlike some desserts that are so full of extras that you can’t even taste the main ingredient.

Can Angel Food Cake be Baked in a Regular Cake Pan?

You can bake an angel food cake in a regular cake pan.

Be sure not to grease the pan.

When cracks that form are dry and the crust is dark golden brown, tip the pan upside down resting each corner on can of equal height until cool.

Can a Diabetic Eat Angel Food Cake?

As a type 2 diabetic, you can eat angel food cake in moderate amounts, but a serving should replace a serving of milk, starch or fruit.

How Do You Ripen a Mango?

Do not refrigerate an unripe mango; the cold stops the ripening process.

If you have already cut your unripe mango, you want to speed up the ripening process as quickly as possible so that it ripens before it rots and you can enjoy eating it.

To Ripen a mango,  place it in a paper bag with another ripe fruit such as an apple or banana.

  • From the comments I see this is an older post. Just hope your dairy free diet includes plenty of egg whites, as you use about a dozen egg whites and sugar with a touch of flour, (and I add vanilla or almond extract),to make an angel food cake!Store bought is generally awful, both in texture and flavor, but the cake mix, is easy and outstanding if you like short cuts!

    • Hi Kay,
      My dairy free (which was mentioned in earlier posts but I totally should have clarified here) was just cows milk not eggs as it was all for allergies my daughter was experiencing while nursing. It was a wild first year as she had so many issues with so many foods, even rice and soy! Crazy enough, just like the doctor said it all ended when she turned a year. I could hardly believe it. 🙂
