Blueberry Angel Food Cake With Citrus Glaze

Jo Zimny


I have always loved Angel Food cake and Blueberries. So I thought I'd combine the two. You don't have to decorate the cake with blueberries but I thought it looked pretty :) Also note, I found the bottom of the cake stuck, so it might be advisable to cut a round of parchment and put it on the bottom to ensure the cake comes out smoothly.
