Strawberry Angel Food Cake:
▢1 box angel food cake mix
▢1 ½ cups frozen strawberries, thawed Measure the strawberries when frozen. When defrosted, you should have about one cup of mashed strawberries.
▢1 cup water
Cream Cheese Glaze:
▢4 ounces cream cheese, softened
▢½ cup powdered sugar, sifted
▢1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
▢2-4 tablespoons milk
Preheat the oven according to the instructions on the cake mix box.
Thoroughly mash the thawed strawberries with a fork.
Add strawberries and water to the angel food cake mix. Mix on low until combined, about 30 seconds, then on medium for about 1 minute, until the batter is light and fluffy.
Place the batter into an angel food cake pan. Run a knife through the batter to deflate any air pockets.
Bake the cake according to the directions on the package, until the top is golden brown and the cracks are dry.
Remove from the oven and immediately invert the pan onto a wire rack or bottle — basically, do what you need to do to keep it upside down while it cools so it doesn’t deflate.
I’ve personally never had luck using a bottle for this particular maneuver, so I bought an angel food cake pan with feet on it.
When cool, run a knife around the edges to release the cake from the pan. It will be super moist because of the strawberries, so be gentle.
Make the Cream Cheese Glaze:
Beat 4 ounces softened cream cheese until it is smooth and creamy. Beat in ½ cup sifted powdered sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, and 2-4 tablespoons milk until it reaches a glaze consistency. Spread over the top of the cake, letting it drip down the sides.
- Make sure to let the cake cool completely before adding the cream cheese glaze. If the cake is still warm, the glaze will melt and won’t stick to the cake.
- You can add more or less milk to the glaze, depending on your desired consistency.
- You can also add more or less powdered sugar, depending on your desired level of sweetness.
