  • 3Cover saucepan and refrigerate about 1 hour or until mixture is chilled.
  • 4Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375.
  • 5Line 15 1/2 x 10 1/2 jelly-roll pan (I use my roasting pan) with waxed paper; grease paper.
  • 6Prepare angel food cake mix as label directs, but spread batter evenly in prepared jelly-roll pan.
  • 7Bake cake 20 minutes or until golden.
  • 8Cover large wire rack with sheet of waxed paper.
