Get ready to enjoy this heavenly delight for National Angel Food Cake Day on October 10th.

Angel food is a type of sponge cake that uses only egg whites instead of the whole egg and is traditionally made in a circular pan whose center hole allows the cake to rise higher than others.

The first known recipe for angel food cake dates back to 1878 in The Home Messenger Book of Tested Recipes by Isabella Stewart. However, the true origin of the recipe most likely came out of the recipes of the enslaved Africans in the American South, though some have pointed to Pennsylvania as a potential source due to the large cake mold production in the area.

For many African Americans, the angel food cake is the traditional cake of funerals as it represents the passing person’s transition to heaven. Conversely, the Pensylvania Dutch serve angel food cake at weddings. 

No matter how your culture uses angel food as part of its traditions, be sure to have a piece just for the sake of celebrating the fluffy treat on October 10th for National Angel Food Cake Day.
