Happy Wednesday everyone! Marion and I had a blast the last couple of days:) It seems I forgot to mention that Marion was celebrating her 96th birthday this past Sunday, which as we all know was the first day of Spring in the northern hemisphere. So, Happy Spring too!!!
What did Marion request for her birthday? Why a trip to the nearest casino, that’s what!!! Yes siree bob, the lady is full of surprises. Now Marion is not a big spender when it comes to the slot machines. If she had her way, she really would be playing pennies in all those machines that lear you in with the promise of winning big bucks by “playing” with pennies. I think the least she has ever gotten away with was 15 cents which usually pays about 3 cents, lol…However, when we arrived at the casino on Sunday, she was game on putting some real cents in those one arm bandits! And, she did pretty darn good too:) This game was called something to the affect of Hot Tamale. Look what sprung up:) All in all we had a wonderful time and actually came home “even.”
It just doesn’t seem right posting a tribute to the role of angels in the story of Easter after a “wild” couple of days of gambling but hey, in my eyes Marion is an Angel and she said it was okay:) So, today I would like to share a quick and easy Angel Good Cake recipe that I discovered on Pinterest. It’s called Lemon Angel Food Cake Bars. I believe the recipe came from here.
I know, we’re probably late to the two ingredient easy Angel Food Cake recipe but, just in case you also live under a rock like we do, I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity. Here goes…
1 box of Angel Food Cake Mix (directions call for water only)
1 can Lemon Pie Filling (22 ounces)
1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk (I just happen to have a little leftover so I “threw” it in. I’m sure you could omit it:)
That’s it! Mix the dry cake ingredients (no water) with the lemon pie filling in a large bowl. Mix it well until it looks almost frothy. (if you want to try the sweetened condensed milk version, I added it to the lemon pie filling before mixing it into the dry cake mix) I lined a 13x9 pan with parchment paper to make it easier but I’m sure you could grease the pan the good old fashioned way and it would work out just as well. Bake it for 30-35 minutes and Enjoy:) (I sprinkled it with confectioneries sugar after it cooled a bit. It also sunk a little bit but nothing too noticeable)
If you insist on going back in time for an inexpensive Angel Food Cake recipe actually made from scratch and with “real” eggs, this Three Egg Angel Food Cake may just be your best bet:)
As for me, I’m sticking with my new found easy peasy egg friendly Angel Food Cake with my choice of fillings. (I just can’t stand the thought of using 12 egg whites when I no longer use egg yolks. What the heck would I do with them???) On this day, I tried crushed pineapple and it is now my very best favorite moist and yummy treat!
When I go shopping tomorrow, I’m going to pick up yet another box of Angel Food Cake Mix, a can of cherry pie filling or canned cherries AND mix them with chocolate low fat sweetened condensed milk and see what happens! What do you think? Black Forest Angel Food Cake Bars anyone??? (I’ve become very fond of low fat sweetened condensed milk as of late. It’s cholesterol free, tastes yummy and I never had it before so I wouldn’t know what it taste like “full fat” lol…
”See” you all next Wednesday with the new calendar for April. Have a wonderful week everyone and…
