 These delicious blueberries will make everyone love the American Holiday seasons! Whether it's Memorial Day, 4th of July or any other reason to make this festive looking cake, let the swooning begin! Two recipes for sugar free low carb and regular recipes for both cake and filling.

Two Version Angel Food and Pudding Recipes!

Here's two versions of this Patriotic cake I make for the red white and blue holiday!

I have a son that is diabetic and make the sugar free-low carb version for him.

I make the other for those who want sugar and don't watch carbs

Both are a delicious cake, one of the recipe with sugar is adapted from Alton Brown's recipe and perfect every time!

Low Carb healthy desserts can fool many people that it's sugar free, it taste that good!

Festive and Delicious!

Of course for all those out there that want a quick dessert you can use sugar-free mixes of both the pudding and cakes I make.

Those are available at the supermarket.

Since I am lucky enough to have the time to bake, I always make mine from scratch.

You can just use this guideline to make your delicious festive 4th of July Patriotic cake for your guests!

Egg White Make it so Light and Soft

I have always been a big fan of Angel food cake.

I love how it springs back when you touch it and it soaks up any kind of fruit purees.

The Cake is Fabulous Plain!

I can just eat it plain or with sliced fruits on top.

My favorite way to eat any cake is without frosting on it.

This Patriotic Angel Food Cake Low Carb or Regular taste cake with or without anything else on it!

Light and Tender Cake

If you decide to make your cake from scratch, they both come so light and tender.

We love the low carb sugar - free version with fruit on it, you really can't tell the difference in flavors.

If you are looking for healthy desserts, this one will be your go too recipe.

It's really not that hard, you do need a good angel food cake pan and follow the package instructions for baking and cooling so it doesn't stick.

The cake has an almost marshmallow taste, made with egg whites and very fluffy texture.

I love to decorate this white cake with the berries, it's a fun treat that everyone loves.

This Patriotic Angel Food Cake Low Carb or Regular is a real crowd pleaser either way you make it.

Sugar Free Angel Food Cake

Sugar Free Version of Angel Food Cake

12 egg whites room temperature 
1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup cornstarch 
1 teaspoon cream of tartar 
1 1/2 cups sugar substitute like splenda or stevia check package for equal amounts
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract 
pinch of salt   
Preheat oven to 325 degrees 

Sift flour, cornstarch, sweetener, and salt into a bowl. Set aside. Using a mixer, whip egg whites with the cream of tartar until medium peaks form. Add the vanilla, using a spatula, fold in the flour mixture into the egg whites in small batches. Place mixture into an ungreased angel food cake tube pan and bake for 40-45 minutes or until cake is springs back to the touch and the top is golden. Remove from the oven and invert pan to cool completely.  Carefully remove from pan and cool after ten minutes.  Proceed with assembly instructions.

Regular with Sugar Version
Alton Browns Angel Food Cake Recipe Adapted From Food Network

1 3/4 cups sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup cake flour, sifted
12 egg whites (the closer to room temperature the better)
1/3 cup warm water
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 teaspoons cream of tartar



Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a food processor spin sugar about 2 minutes until it is superfine. Sift half of the sugar with the salt the cake flour, setting the remaining sugar aside.

In a large bowl, use a balloon whisk to thoroughly combine egg whites, water, orange extract, and cream of tartar. After 2 minutes, switch to a hand mixer. Slowly sift the reserved sugar, beating continuously at medium speed. Once you have achieved medium peaks, sift enough of the flour mixture in to dust the top of the foam. Using a spatula fold in gently. Continue until all of the flour mixture is incorporated.
Carefully spoon mixture into an ungreased tube pan. Bake for 35 minutes before checking for doneness with a wooden skewer. (When inserted halfway between the inner and outer wall, the skewer should come out dry).
Cool upside down on cooling rack for at least an hour before removing from pan.

Slice Tube cake in half. Fill with custard, garnish with whipped cream, strawberries and blueberries.

French Vanilla Custard Filling:

Diabetic Version:

2 cups almond milk

pinch of salt

1/2 vanilla bean or pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon to 1 teaspoon liquid sugar free sweetener

In a medium saucepan stir the arrowroot powder and salt together.  Whisk in the milks, egg yolks. Stir constantly until mixture thickens.
Add the butter and  vanilla and liquid sugar free sweetener.
Cook for 1 more minute. Remove from heat and place a piece of wax paper over the top to keep it from forming a skin.
Wait until it cools to taste and adjust sweetener if more is needed. 
Proceed to cool before filling the angel food cake.

1/2 cup sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon salt
