Recipe: Grilled angel food cake

Angel food cake is a low-fat, airy dessert that is the perfect finish to a summer meal.

Angel food cake is a low-fat, airy dessert that is the perfect finish to a summer meal. If you''re using the grill for dinner, grill the angel food cake after you finish your meal. Or, if you prefer, broil the angel food cake until it browns.


Directions

Prepare a hot fire in a charcoal grill or heat a gas grill or broiler. Away from the heat source, lightly coat the grill rack or broiler pan with cooking spray. Position the cooking rack 4 to 6 inches from the heat source.

To make the sauce, in a saucepan, combine the strawberries, rhubarb, sugar, water, vanilla and cinnamon. Cook on medium heat until the mixture just starts to boil, about 5 minutes. Remove the saucepan from the heat and set aside.

Place the angel food cake toward the edge of the grill rack where there is less heat or on the broiler pan. Grill or broil until each side turns brown, about 1 to 3 minutes.

Place the angel food cake on individual serving plates. Top each piece with 1/4 cup of the strawberry-rhubarb sauce and 2 tablespoons of the whipped topping. Serve immediately.
