The angel food cake in this recipe does take a little more effort compared to a regular cake, but it is so worth it. In my opinion, nothing screams summer more than an Angel Food Cake Parfait. It will be well worth the extra effort in the kitchen. Be sure to share with your family and friends, they will thank you!

Pro Tips for this Angel Food Cake Parfait:

Angel Food Cake can be very delicate and a little more difficult to make compared to regular cakes. It is KEY to follow the instructions carefully and really pay attention to the notes. Below are my key tips to get a great and fluffy Angel Food Cake every time.

  • Sifting/Food Processor: Adding the coconut flour and arrowroot flour to the food processor is key. This will ensure that your cake is fluffy and not dense.
  • Slow and Steady: Make sure to fold in the dry ingredients slowly. Do not stir fast or over-mix. This will deflate the egg whites.
  • Get the right pan: Be sure to use an actual Angel Food Cake Pan that has a tub. It makes removing the cake so much easier. Mine has the little legs on the top that make cooling the cake easier.
  • Let it COOL: Allowing the cake to completely cool before removing from the pan is very important. I usually use a knife around the edges that helps release it easier from the pan.

Angel Food Cake

  1. Add the egg whites to a bowl and cover with a towel. Allow to sit for 20 minutes.

  3. In a food processor, add in the coconut flour and arrowroot flour. Pulse together for about 20 seconds. Set to the side.

  5. Beat all together on high speed.
  6. Slowly begin adding the Swerve Powdered Sweetener. Continue whipping until soft peaks form.
  7. Take the dry ingredients from the food processor and fold in using a spatula. Do this in 1/4 cup cup increments. Make sure to do this slowly. You don’t want to deflate the egg whites.
  8. Slowly scoop the mixture into a 10 inch UNGREASED Angel Food pan.
  9. Bake at 325 for about 35-40 minutes until lightly golden.
  10. When removing from the oven, immediately invert pan onto a cooling rack. Allow to cool completely, around 2 hours or so. Run a knife along the edges of the pan and carefully plate the cake.

Coconut Whipped Cream

  1. Place the cans of full fat coconut milk in the fridge overnight.
  2. Remove and open the cans.  Drain off the liquid and keep the thick cream.
  3.  In a large mixing bowl, mix the coconut cream, the powdered swerve, lemon juice and the vanilla extract using a hand held mixer. Mix until stiff peaks forms.

  1. Cut once slice of cake for each parfait. Crumble it up and add half to the bottom of a glass.
  2. Top with a couple of  tablespoons of coconut whipped cream and berries
  3. Repeat the process once more time.

Notes

  • Adding the coconut flour and arrowroot flour to the food processor is key. This will ensure that your cake is fluffy and not dense.
  • Make sure to fold in the dry ingredients slowly. Do not stir fast or over-mix.

  1. Jenna Schnepf says:

    What can you sub for powdered swerve sweetener? Would regular powdered sugar work or powdered maple sugar?

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      Yes. Any powdered sugar would work.

  2. Loretta says:

    Can you replace the arrowroot flour with almond flour or a different flour?

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      I really hate to say yes on this because I haven’t tried it. Almond and arrowroot flour are different and it may not turn out correctly. You can always test it to see, but I can’t say it will work.

  3. Misty says:

    Does the Coconut milk need to be refrigerated overnight? I was going to make this today, but just saw that?

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      Yes, for it to come out correctly, the canned coconut milk would need to be refrigerated overnight. This allows the cream to harden at the top of the can. That is the part you will use to make the whipped topping.

  4. Barbara says:

    I don’t have an angel food pan. Do you think a muffin pan or tart pan would work?! This looks so delish!!

✨We all need quick meals and I’m obsessed with these  English Muffin Tuna Melts. They can be on the dinner table in under 15 minutes and can be tailored to be gluten and dairy free. 

 ✨ENGLISH MUFFIN TUNA MELTS✨
*3 English muffins split in half (gluten-free or regular)
*Butter (to toast muffins) optional
*6 slices Colby Jack cheese or cheese of choice (you can also use dairy-free cheese)
*6 slices red onion, thinly sliced (Optional, but adds nice crunch and flavor)
*Three 5-ounce cans of white meat tuna packed in water, drained
*2 tablespoons finely chopped yellow onion
*2 tbsp dill relish or 2 large pickle spears, chopped
*1/3 cup homemade or mayo of choice
*1 tablespoon pickle juice
*1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
*1/2 teaspoon kosher salt (or to taste)
*Parsley for garnish

✨Instructions✨
1. MIX THE TUNA SALAD: In a medium mixing bowl, add the canned tuna and break up the tuna with a fork. Transfer the chopped onions, relish, pickle juice, salt/pepper, and mayo. Mix together until combined. 
2. TOAST MUFFINS: You can choose to toast the English muffins with butter under the broiler for 2-3 minutes. However, if you don’t want to toast before adding the tuna, that’s okay. It still turns out great without toasting muffins first. 
3. BUILD THE MELTS: Divide the tuna mixture evenly among each of the toasted English muffins. Add a thin slice red onion along with a thin slice of Colby Jack cheese over the top.  Return to the oven and bake for 7-8 minutes in a 375F oven or until cheese is melted. Garnish with fresh parsley and enjoy!
