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.
