Once you’ve tried broiled angel food cake, there is a good chance you’ll never want it any other way. With a crisp, golden brown crust reminiscent of toasted marshmallows and that tender melt-in-your-mouth interior you’ve come to expect from angel food cake, this is sure to become one of your favorite go-to dessert recipes.

Note: Due to its round shape, angel food cake is normally cut into wedges before serving. However, the pieces will not brown evenly under the broiler if cut like this. Instead, carefully cut the angel food cake into uniform 2-inch wide slices, working from one side to the other. Once sliced, trim the pieces so they are all approximately the same size.

This recipe can be made with your favorite homemade angel food cake recipe or with the store-bought variety. However, if you buy a pre-made cake, look for one that is not packaged inside a disposable baking pan. The exterior of cakes sold like this tend to be very sticky, which makes them more difficult to slice. Look for one that is packaged with just plastic wrap around it for protection, instead.


  • 1 pint heavy whipped cream
  • 1-2 T. real maple syrup
  • 1 t. Belle Donne Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 angel food cake, homemade or purchased, sliced as described above
  • 5 T. unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 pint fresh strawberries, washed, hulled, and sliced
  • ½ pint fresh blueberries, washed


  1. In a large glass bowl, blend 1-pint heavy whipping cream with a hand or immersion blender until it doubles in size and changes texture. Drizzle maple syrup and vanilla extract into the bowl and continue blending until the mixture is light and fluffy. Cover and store in the refrigerator until ready to use.
  2. Place your oven’s top rack on the second highest setting and turn the broiler on “High.” Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil and set aside.
  3. Place the angel food cake slices on the prepared baking sheet and brush with the melted butter. Turn over each piece and repeat on the other side.
  4. Place baking sheet under the broiler until the angel food cake turns golden brown, approximately 2-3 minutes.Tip: You may need to rotate the baking sheet to get uniform results. Keep a very close eye on the cake during this time because it can burn very quickly.

    Once toasted, remove the baking sheet from oven and turn over each slice. Place back under the broiler and toast the remaining side until golden brown. approximately 2-3 minutes.

  5. Remove from oven and cool slightly before arranging the toasted slices on individual serving plates. Top with some maple whipped cream and fresh berries and serve immediately. Enjoy!
