Angel food cake
I have to confess that I have never been a big fan of angel food cake. To me it tasted like slightly sweet cotton balls - not at all a good thing. And then I had a two year stretch where all five of my kids wanted it for their birthdays - late March to mid July. This did not help the cause.
THEN I DISCOVERED MAKING IT FROM SCRATCH. It opened up a whole new angel food world for me. Light. Delicate. HEAVENLY. Sigh.
And by request, the angel was topped with a rich chocolate glaze. SINFUL. I used the Barefoot Contessa's recipe which you can find here.
I am going to be posting my baking over the holiday, but probably not doing many or any link parties. I am having too much fun enjoying the green beret's visit as well as planning for the Philadelphian's visit. There are Christmas concerts to go to, packages to wrap, and our favorite cookies to bake - chocolate crinkles, peanut butter blossoms, and Russian teacakes.
Happy Christmas baking everyone!
