Angel food cake is the only true American pastry recipe, made without French technique. It’s probably even more American than apple pie. It likely originated with the Pennsylvania Dutch who made and first named angel food. We see references in our early New England cookbooks to this all-American original as well. We decided to make it even more American and dress this cake up in red, white, and blue, something we came up with for the Fourth of July. The egg whites might seem daunting, but the results are worth it.
A really delicious 4th of July dessert. The blueberry cream began leaking juice after a few minutes, which was a bit messy, but everyone loved it.
