This recipe is for a light fluffy angel food cake with a bit of a twist. It's mocha flavored! I first had this cake when I was 11 or 12 and my step-grandma made it. I wanted to devour that entire cake. For some reason I haven't made very often if ever at all. I was telling a co-worker about it and promised to whip one up sometime. Well since it was her birthday I decided I make it and bring it to the office to share. I have seen recipes online for making it from scratch but I cheated and used a box mix which makes it super simple to make.
It's funny how the frosting looks almost exactly like the batter! The original cake I had also had toasted almonds on it and was actually frosted. Since I was bringing it to work and I don't have anything to transport a cake I ended up cutting it into slices and putting the frosting in a container.
It's an easy recipe and one that seems to be a hit with everyone who tries it.
