Why toast the angel food cake? Well, you certainly don’t have to. This lemon blueberry sauce would be good drizzled over plain angel food cake. But, toasting the cake really adds something special. Typically, angel food cake is very soft and eaten at room temperature or cold. When you toast it, you get a warm crispy outside with a soft center. In my opinion, toasted angel food cake is just better!
I created a printable recipe card for the lemon blueberry sauce (below). But, I didn’t make one for the toasted angel food cake because it is so simple. This is all you do.
- Spray a skillet with cooking spray
- Add a couple pieces of angel food cake to the skillet
- Cook over medium heat for about 4 minutes on each side (or until brown and slightly crispy)

Lemon blueberry sauce would also be great served over ice cream or stirred into Greek yogurt.
