I have been promising a friend I would make a good old fashioned homemade Angel Food Cake for them since they insist all angel food cake is dry and nasty. Made Nanas recipe and added a layer of blueberries and cool whip and came out with this. You can make this in the traditional tube pan but mine seemed to have disappearred so I made it in two 8x8 non stick pans. Rather than put them on top of each other I just made two cakes. Kept one and gave the other to my friend. They were very good and gone in seconds.
