Hi all– This is really not a recipe– just an easy idea. And no cake is easier to make than Angel Food (from a mix!). Just add water, mix, don’t even spray the pan, bake. Just follow the directions on the box. And the pretty glaze on top just needs 2 ingredients. Viola!
We made this for one of the cakes for Mom’s birthday–makes a nice alternative to heavier cakes. And pretty much got eaten down to the last crumb. It’s my Larry’s favorite.
ORANGE GLAZED ANGEL FOOD CAKE
Angel food cake mix
1 large orange
1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
Bake the cake according to the directions on the box in an angel food pan and cool upside down, perched on a bottle to keep the cake from shrinking. When the cake is cooled, removed it from a pan onto a pretty plate.
Grate the zest from the orange and set aside. Juice the orange. Then whisk together the powdered sugar and the orange zest and 3 tablespoons of the orange juice. If the mixture seems too thick, add a bit more juice just a few drops at a time until the glaze is the texture of honey. Drizzle the glaze over the cake. Done– and so pretty!
