Member Comments About this Recipe
"Great idea! Thanks for the tip on cooling. And guess what? You can now buy whole wheat pastry flour -- more fiber, yeah!" -- STEPF_BABYFIT
"When cooling angel food cakes it's good to turn it upside down, with the edges of the pan resting on two solid objects. That way the cake stays fluffy and doesn't fall as much.
Angel food is a family favorite here, and we generally eat it right from the pan with no frosting or toppings." -- 1MADGE
