    Another National Day devoted to food. Yum for angel food cake, though I like the fruit toppings more than the cake.

    thanks for the history tidbits.

    The very interesting thing I learned about Angel Food cake mixes is that they already have "egg product" in them, so no eggs required. So you may have heard of the "3-2-1" cake recipe, which is in fact a mini cake you make in the micro, and the key dry ingredient is Angel Food cake mix, along with a regular cake mix flavor of your choosing! Great way to have a quick and easy (and relatively low calorie) desert!
