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.

Depends. I use an angel food cake mix for a bread pudding variation, using cake cubes in place of bread. And this?
http://www.eatingwell.com/recipe/267338/citrus-angel-cake-with-peach-and-plum-salsa/ Is absolutely amazing with or without the salsa. (The orange zest makes all the difference!)

I am not a big fan but when I do make it I make it from scratch. My grandmother was famous for her Angel Food and I use her recipe. When I make it, I think of her beating all those egg whites by hand since they didn't get electricity until sometime in the late 1930's. I am thankful for my Kitchenaid.
My favorite cake to make with Angle food is a cake Grandma used to make with chocolate whipped cream.
Make an Angel Food cake and cool
Beat together until stiff:
1 teaspoon Vanilla
3 cups Whipping Cream
1 1/2 cups Powdered Sugar
3/4 cup Cocoa
1/4 teaspoon Salt
Cut off the top 1" of the cake and scoop out the insides so you have a tunnel with 1" of cake on all sides. Fill the tunnel with the cream, put the top back on, and frost with the remaining cream. Decorate with raspberries or slivered almonds.
