Angel cake is a dream dessert for health-conscious eaters. Made from egg whites but no yolks, this lofty delight doesn't even require fat. The vividly colourful fruit sauce makes the cake worthy of a festive occasion.
• Make the sauce with other berries. Both raspberries and blueberries, or a mixture of berries, are good choices.
• Add 60 g (⅓ cup) chocolate chips or grated dark plain chocolate to the cake mixture. You'll get plenty of chocolate flavour, but with less fat than with a chocolate cake.
When you just have to have a cake, an angel cake is a great choice. It's low in sodium and has no fat or cholesterol; its only vice is the sugar content. However, since it is served with a fruit sauce rather than being iced, you have a very healthy dessert.
So good and made a great dessert for our summer time cookout. It reminded me of a strawberry lemonade cake. Will be making this one again. - 31 May 2013
