Does anyone actually like Angel Food Cake?

Just my totally biased opinion, but angel food cake is a sad excuse for a dessert. Does anyone actually enjoy it?

    I like it. But not store bought that stuff is icky, has a weird aftertaste to me. So I admit that I will buy the box mix and whip one up. And sometimes around the holidays actually make one from scratch. But also normally serve with berries and a bit of whipped cream. I never ever use frosting or icing on an angel food cake.

    I can't eat it. It is one of the two things I have found (the other being mangoes) that just the smell of makes me vomit.

    Scratch has a much better texture than any box or store bought. Fresh egg whites vs. egg white powder, they are not the same. Add a little almond extract, yummy.

    This! I wouldn't pick it over chocolate or carrot but really like it with strawberries and whipped cream.

    Love it, plain or with lemon curd and cool whip. Yum!

    Oh, I agree that it's good with moist toppings... pudding, warm berries, pie filling, etc. I just think it is so lifeless!

    I’ve never had it, don’t know if it’s really a ‘thing’ in the UK or at least in the same form as in the US. We have Angel Cake 🍰 , which is usually a striped layer cake in the same flavour/colours as Neapolitan Ice Cream; chocolate, vanilla and strawberry.

    I have thought of trying to make it though, at various times but have hesitated because I have no idea whether a recipe looks legit or not since I don’t know what I’m aiming for! I imagine it being a very light, very close textured thing, like a Genoese Sponge but with less flavour?

    Angelfood cake is delicious when presented with copious amounts of dense sugar frosting. Think of it as a vehicle for eating the frosting.

    Not my favorite, but I’ll eat it if that’s what is served. It’s much better with lots of stuff on it...berries, whipped cream, chocolate sauce.

    I like it, but yeah, not my first choice in cake :) I love it with a lot of fruit and whipped cream.

    I like it when I eat it, which is not often
