Broiled Angel Food Cake

Last Christmas I purchased the Taste of Home Simple and Delicious Cookbook at Target for my mother. It looked so good I purchased one for myself. Now when we try a recipe we can let each other know if we think the other would enjoy the recipe. This is a great idea for a newly married daughter and mom! (Why didn't I buy three copies?)

This is an easy dessert to make! It would be fun at the end of a BBQ with friends.  There is something remincient about a toasted marshmellow when you eat this angel food cake.  We made it twice this week (they boys loved it!) and on the second go around we tried caramel topping with vanilla ice cream. It was our favorite version.  Let me know if you give it a try!

Butterscotch Angel Cake


8 slices angel food cake
3/4 cup butter, melted, divided
1 cup packed brown sugar, divided
8 scoops butter brickle or butter pecan ice cream
Butterscotch ice cream topping

Place cake slices on a greased baking sheet. Brush with 6 tablespoons butter; press 1 tablespoon brown sugar onto each slice. Broil 5-6 in. from the heat for 1-2 minutes or until bubbly.

Turn slices over; brush with remaining butter and sprinkle with remaining brown sugar. Broil 1-2 minutes longer or until bubbly. Cool for 2-3 minutes. Serve with ice cream; drizzle with butterscotch topping.

Serving: 8
