It’s officially Summer! Hooray! Of course, isn’t it kind of weird how the beginning of Summer is practically the end of June? Seems odd. It should definitely start June 1 or at least around there… maybe even the last week of May, but then the kids in the northern half of the country would still be going to school when it’s Summer.

They got lucky here and finished just before Summer started. I’m sure that hasn’t always been the case though. Too many snow days and the end of the year can get pushed back a ways! But let’s not talk about snow days when it’s gorgeous, sunny and Summer!

But now that it’s Summer, you need cake. But not just any cake. Angel food cake.

In case you don’t have a fancy schmacy angel food cake pan, this one uses a bundt pan! I did it this way because I figured, who really wants to buy a giant pan that you’ll rarely use for anything but angel food cake. Right? But almost everyone has a bundt pan. If you don’t have a bundt pan, it’s totally a worthwhile purchase because it can be used for all kinds of cakes… sweet cakes, savory cakes, breads, breakfast cakes, and so much more! See… bundt pans are where it’s at! Forget about that silly straight sided boring pan that’s just going to take up a square foot of space in your cabinet. That’s a huge chunk of space!

Angel food cake is a classic and is an absolute must every Summer.

It would of course be perfect for 4th of July celebrations, topped off with your favorite seasonal fruit or roasted strawberries! So hard to choose which way to go, so you should probably offer it both ways. Just saying. Definitely assorted fruit… and roasted strawberries and especially with a generous helping of whipped cream.

After you separate your eggs to make this amazing angel food bundt cake, be sure to save your yolks to make lots of homemade ice cream!
