Our recipe for Angel Food Cake with Lime Drizzle relies on a sneaky shortcut (store-bought Angel Food cake) that gets dressed up at home with a decidedly tropical twist. The only real prep work here? You’ll dice the strawberries and pineapple, and boil, then cool, a tart lime syrup. Simply slice the cake and put each piece on a plate; add a few spoonfuls of fruit to every serving; then drizzle your lime syrup over the top of the soft, spongy cake and its accompanying fruit. The end result is so unique, not to mention tasty, nobody will question its origins.
