Orange Angel Food Cake Dessert Recipe

Publisher Photo
With just one bite of Janet Springer's light-as-air angel food, even dieters will be on cloud nine! Cutting back on the fat and sugar doesn't squeeze the flavor from the sunny citrus cake she makes frequently in St. Petersburg, Florida.

This yummy dessert is easy to prepare and the flavor combination is nice. Although it takes time to chill, the final result is excellent even more so when you consider that it is lower calorie and diabetic friendly. We have enjoyed this regularly since first seeing the recipe in one of the special TOH magazine cookbooks.
