HELLO TO ALL!

 

Today’s Baking with Blake features one of my favorite cakes, Angel Food Cake!  This version is done with a Strawberry Glaze!  Sadly the camera we were using ran out of batteries and we had no charger 😦  (thanks Steve!)  The cake was moist and flavorful with amazing aeration of the cake itself and a delicious tartness from the Strawberry Glaze.  All I need to say is that the cake didn’t last 1 day.   Either way, here it is, and below the video is how you make the Strawberry Glaze.

 

 

 

STRAWBERRY GLAZE INGREDIENTS

  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 1 Cup Water
  • 2 Cups Diced Fresh Strawberries
  • 1 Shot Armagnac (Cognac will work also)

RECIPE

  1. In a Medium Sauce Pan combine the Sugar and Water over Medium-Low Heat
  2. Stir until sugar is completely dissolved
  3. Add Strawberries and Armagnac
  4. Stir, and let simmer for 10-15 minutes until the  liquid has thickened and is reduced about about 1/3
  5. Remove from Heat put in a bowl and put sauce in Freezer for 10-15 minutes until cooled to near room temperature
  6. Pour the glaze ALLLLLL over the cake and let it sit for about 5 minutes to absorb some of the goodness
