Happy “Snack”urday! Sorry I am late today. I have a lot going on. Well, more than usual. I will have 2 kids in soccer this year. Season is kicking off and I already know of at least 3 evenings this week that will be consumed by soccer. “YAY” ~sarcasm~. It’s alright, really, I am glad my kids have an activity that they enjoy.
Here at A Few Short Cuts my mission is to provide you with easy, affordable recipes that make your life a little easier. I also like to break down barriers. For some reason some recipes have a stigma. They are those recipes that you have never tried because you were told they are too difficult, too messy, better left to the professionals. Why can’t you make them?? They can, and so can you.
This week we are tackling one of those recipes. Angel Food Cake. I love Angel Food Cake! It is so light and fluffy. Perfect for shortcake, or just by itself. Did I mention that it can be figure friendly? Yep, it is lower in calories than other cakes.
I make these all the time, but I thought it was appropriate this week because I am trying to get back on the “watching what I eat wagon”. I still wanted to give you guys “Snack”urday. For some reason whatever I bake has to be eatenJ.
SO, dust off your aprons, grab your ingredients and let’s make and Angel Food Cake!
