Happy Birthday Bekah

My younger daughter, Bekah, turned 21 this week.   I promised her an angel food cake - her favorite! Finally got it baked today.

I did plan ahead and purchased a mix from the Co-Op - very reasonable and it baked up beautifully.  I always think of my mom when I bake an angel food cake.  She would invert hers to cool on a funnel -mainly because the metal 'legs' were broken off her pan.

The cake baked up nice and high.  The best way to cut a slice is to use a serrated knife.  The sawing action will not tear up the cake like a regular knife.

And here it is all dressed up with some fresh strawberries and whipped topping.  A great summer dessert.  Happy Birthday Bekah!
