Apple-Spice Angel Food Cake Recipe

Publisher Photo
I dressed up an angel food cake mix with some nuts, spice and applesauce to make an easy and light dessert. I serve it with a dollop of whipped topping mixed with one half cup of sour cream. —Joan Buehnerkemper, Altamont, Illinois

Turned out pretty good. Didn't raise as high as I thought it should. Second time I made it, I used "store brand" cake mix and it did not rise at all.

My husband and I ate this cake up all by ourselves.....it was absolutely delicious!

This cake sounds like a "winner" to me. I will definitely add this cake to my list of "special" desserts. In the spring you could change things around and add strawberries and chocolate chips and add dollops of chocolate flavored whipped topping or just layer with fresh strawberries on top. There are so many options for each season and/or holiday.

You have to use the 1 bag mix to use this recipe. Other wise mix as directed

MY REVIEW

Cake didn't rise like I expected. Directions on cake mix box had beating egg whites with water 5 minutes before sprinkling flour into beaten egg whites. The next time I think I will follow those directions before folding in the applesauce etc.
