TOASTED ANGEL FOOD CAKE! THE EASIEST SWEET ENDING EVER!


My very best friend from the time I was 
9 through age 14
was Beth.
We lived within a few neighborhoods from each other
and attended the same elementary school and junior high school.


Beth and I spent much of our free time
riding our bikes to each other's house
during weekends and summer months.
Oh, those were sweet times.
We even loved dressing alike!


Beth and I would spend summer days outside
just talking, reading books, dreaming about boys
and making daisy chains.
I doubt that young girls do that any longer.
Beth's mother created this dessert featured today.
We had ice cold grape juice with mint leaves
and 
her Mother's toasted angel food cake!
I have never known anyone else who served
angel food cake this way,
but it is absolutely divine!
Beth and her older brother, Jimmy went
away to boarding school in Boca Raton, Florida
once we reached high school.
It was the end of our times together,
but I always remember her so very fondly.


All you need is
One store bought angel food cake
Slice into serving pieces.
Spread each side with softened butter.
Toast in a 350 degree F. preheated oven
for about 8-10 minutes.
Remove from oven and sprinkle with
powdered sugar!


A bite of a sweet childhood memory!

Her mother attended my wedding and that was the last I heard of them...I would love to find her! Have you ever found a childhood friend you lost touch with?
