Sweet and Pretty Angel Food Cake

These special little angel food cakes are almost effortless and too delicious to resist.

The rich, moist texture of this divine angel food cake is unlike any other. Made from scratch in minutes, it’s baked in a 13- x 9-inch pan and spread with frosting that’s a lemon lover’s dream. The two-step method for mixing the cake batter is unique, calling for a blend of sugar and flour to be folded into a billowy mound of egg whites. The inspiration of a Texas chicken farmer’s wife, the recipe was passed along to workers and on again to a Southern Living reader, who graciously shared it with us.
