Note to self: Pictures are Good. Don’t forget pictures. Top: Crepes with Angel food cake. As you can see, the recipe is exactly the same for the two items, but look at the difference! I’m happy to report that they were a hit! Middle: Angel Food Cake on its own, as a cross-section. I could only eat half of one because it was pretty filling. Look at how wonderfully the cream fills the middle. It was delicious!
I know, true low-carb believers and gluten-free friends. You’re like “First of all, she’s back posting on a tear,” and second of all, “I wonder how to make my hair smell like berries.”
OK, maybe not the second bit, but I have been finding that as we’re winding down, the soothing qualities of being in the kitchen help to keep me sane. I can make stuff, touch stuff, sniff stuff. For me, it’s like a hands-on Paint Your Wagon fun time, coupled with whipping creams, berries and other fun things.
Gluten-free, and very low-carb (which means low glycemic load), the only think the induction folks from Atkins will have to stay away from is the berries (you’re allowed three ounces of fresh cream in induction according to the 2002 DANDR).
**Edited to add: I used the Mini Wilton Non-Stick Angel Food Pans (can be found at Super Target, 2 per pack). These are roughly 5-6″ in diameter.

2 questions…first, I see canola oil in the ingredient list for the oopsies but don’t see it actually used in the recipe…what’s it for? Second, what size/shape pan are you using for the angel food cakes?
Ignore the canola oil reference. The recipe is precisely the same as the crepes, so I copied and pasted the ingredients without thinking.
Great catch! Thank you so much!
I am using the small Wilton Angel Food Cake pans that you can find at Super Target or WalMart.
Of course, I forgot to add that entire paragraph (I wrote it and then utterly neglected to copy it over from Word).
You are my friend of the day!

I hoping to find enough time this weekend to whip up some of you sweet berry desserts they sound so wonderful and look great. Thanks for sharing ! .
Hello darling! What size pans should I use? Looks awesome, as always!
I use the little Mini angel food wilton cake pans. I found them at super Target in the cake pan aisle, hanging up with the other mini pans!
They are sooo cute!
You’re welcome, Janeann!
Do you think you could do these in muffin tins? I’d love to try these.

How fluffy do these cakes turn out? I'm looking to do a low-carb cake but I want it to be sponge-y and fluffy like I remember angel food cake being.
Baking powder in with the yolks??
Good question, Wenda. Yes! Only cream of tartar goes with the whites.
I also ask how much batter in a muffin tin? So I can make individual muffinss and add toppings for snacke later, also maybe freeze some.
Having a nice snack at night, or after a meal would be nice, an entire cake is too mucvh for a individual living alone.
It says add cream of tarter to the yokes. Is that supposed to be just cream.
