This was my first go at making a proper angel food cake and I was super pleased with the perfect fluff and texture. It was so smooth and had such a fantastic flavour. I usually opt for the simple pre-made ones at the grocery store baking shops... nevermore! If I can do this, anyone can do this! Do give this treat a try.

Different twist on angel food cake.
What a great holiday cake and so easy. A comfort food with a hot cup of coffee or tea. This also makes a great gift.
Sift flour with 1/2 cup of the sugar and sift together 4 times. Beat egg whites until foamy.
This easy recipe combines a cake mix and a can of pie filling to make a very easy and low fat dessert.

I need a diabetic Angel food cake recipe. Can anyone help me?
Jay from Laurel, Delaware
I just bought a box of Splenda to use in baking for diabetics. It says you can substitute 1part Splenda for 1 part sugar. I don't see why you can't use it instead of sugar for your regular Angle Food cake recipe..
I also noticed at another grocery store a "sugar substitute for baking" product but I can't remember what it's called.
Angel Food Cake sounds good, I think I'll make one for my Seniors I work with at a nursing home.
You won't find a recipe for "diabetic" Angel Food Cake - it is made with highly processed white flour which is very high G.I. Diabetics need to eat complex carbohydrates such as wholemeal flour with added whole grains (such as multi-grain bread). This would be far too heavy for an Angel Food Cake. Just eliminating the sugar content is not enough.
Although angel food cake is a high glycemic food, it is the least problematic of the cakes. It is usually served without frosting and has absloutely no fat. Portion control is the way to go . Ask your nutritionist or diabetic educator how to work it into your eating plan for special occasions.
Sorry, you are not going to find a substitute for this. Make the Betty Crocker one and eat what would be measured for the unit you are allowed. The falacy of eating "diabetic or non-diabetic foods/candy" is not a funny subject. This is not how the diabetic teaching is now done. Even 'diabetic' foods have content that must be measured the same way as any food consumption. A carb, fat, protein all has the same calories no matter what food substance it is in. You learn to live within your calories and carbs allowed. By law, all items to be consumed/chewed must be labeled.
So if you truely want Angel Food Cake, then eat a small slice. An AFC cut into 12 pieces has 150 calories, 45 grams of carbs.
A slice of Country hearth w/w multigrain bread has 90 calories, 17 grams of carbs. For a slice of cake, think 3 slices of w/w multigrain bread. Then adjust your diet.
I am a diet controlled diabetic as well. Sometimes when we crave something, 1 single bite will be just as good as the whole piece. So I take 1 bite of things I crave!
I am making an angel-food cake. I see that it is often made using pineapple. Can I use any kind of canned fruit, and do I drain it?
Try drained mandarin oranges.
Whatever they suggest for pineapple, do for the other fruit.
There are so many ways to make this lovely summer cake!
Are you making a scratch cake (most canned fruits will work but most recipes call for them to be drained)?
If you are making a box mix, it varies. Some say to drain, some say don't drain.
This one is a hybrid and tells you NOT to drain and to add more liquid: food.unl.edu/
Post back the finished cake! YUM!!!
You can use anything. It's so fun to experiment. If the recipe says drained, then drain. IF it says "with juices" then do not.
