Angel Food Cake Desserts

You might thing that angel food cake desserts are complicated to make. That you need to really have training as a pastry chef to make an angel food cake. But, I’m telling you, it’s doable and it’s not difficult!

Angel Food Cupcake Recipe

You see I consider myself a ‘rogue’ baker, which basically means, I can bake, but don’t ask for multi-step patisserie type desserts. And, this angel food cupcake recipe kind of looked like that to me initially! 

My friends at Rodelle Vanilla always have the most enticing fabulous recipes on their website, and I’m particularly interested in the desserts!  So, I spied one that just spoke to me!  Yes, it said ‘Ally, you have to make me. Really don’t be scared!’

Angel Food Cake Muffins

Angel food cupcakes are really like angel food cake muffins, but in this case, I didn’t use a muffin pan. I decided to use my popover pan. 

Easy Popovers

Easy popovers, yes, that’s what these little air filled delicious cupcakes are! It’s like biting into whipped baked meringue and something just melts in your mouth like cotton candy!

Best Popover Recipes

I decided that I’d give this recipe, now what I consider one of those best popover recipes, a real try. I’d work within the confines of the recipe, follow each step to a teeand make it!  Well, I didn’t have any almond extract, so I had to use more vanilla extract. 

How to Make Popovers

What I’m talking about when I say how to make popovers is how to use this baking pan for other types of cupcakes and muffins. There’s just something about the shape of the popover and the look of the ‘muffin’ or ‘cupcake’ if that’s what you call it when it comes out!

Here are some of my great muffin and cupcake recipes to try with your popover pan!

Angel Food Cupcakes Bourbon Strawberry Sauce & Cacao Nibs

Ingredients

  • 1 cup cake flour, sifted (I used rice flour.)
  • 1 ½ cups sugar, divided
  • 9 egg whites
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 Rodelle Vanilla Bean, scraped
  • 2 teaspoon Rodelle Gourmet Vanilla Extract
  • Bourbon Strawberry Sauce~~
  • 3 cups sliced fresh strawberries
  • 4-6 tbl bourbon
  • ¼ cup raw sugar

Instructions

oat your baking pans (cupcake, popover, mini-cupcake or whatever you use) with cooking spray, butter, or Crisco.

Sift the flour and ½ cup of the sugar together. Repeat.

Beat the egg whites until foamy. Add the salt and cream of tartar and continue to beat until the hold soft peaks. Beat in the remaining sugar, the Rodelle Vanilla Bean, split and scraped and the Rodelle Vanilla Extract (Rodelle’s recipe called for 1 tsp  Almond
Extract, but I didn’t have, so I upped the vanilla extract from ½ tsp to 2 tsp) and continue to beat until the peaks become a little stiffer.

Gradually and gently fold in the flour mixture, using a rubber spatula. Turn the batter into the cups, filling to ¾ full.

Baking time will depend upon the implement you use—I did popovers which took about 25-30 minutes, small bundt cupcakes, which took about 20-25 minutes and mini-cupcakes, which took about 15-18 minutes.  You’ll know they’re done by a light touch, (firm and resilient) some cracking that will show, and nicely browned.

Let the cupcakes cool, then run a dull knife carefully around the sides of the cupcakes and remove. Cool completely before serving. Drizzle with glaze or sauce, and top with berries.

Best served the day they're made.  I’m putting in an airtight container to see how they fare for a day or two!

Bourbon Strawberry Sauce:

Put the strawberries and bourbon in a sauce pan over medium heat. Mash the berries somewhat with a potato masher or fork.  Add the sugar.  Bring to a simmering boil for about 15-20 minutes to thicken somewhat.  That's it!
