Marble Angle Food Cake with Strawberries

After many hours of dreamily looking at strawberry dessert recipes, I settled on two. First up was a marble angle food cake, which necessitated a new angle food pan. I’m not a big fan of having such specific, one use, items, but it sure made all the difference. The cake came out tall, spongy and moist. I halved the strawberries and sprinkled them with just a touch of sugar. My original plan had been to make a rhubarb sauce as well, but that didn’t come together. Still an overall success.

Next up was a classic strawberry rhubarb pie. I used an Epicurious recipe, Lattic Topped Strawberry Rhubarb Pie. The only change I made was to use a 10 inch pan instead of the 9 inch. I have no idea how it would have fit in a smaller pan. The crust came out flaky and lightly sweet, while the cinnamon brought the fruit together. The fresh strawberries shined through in this pie. Yum!
