Angel Food Cupcakes with Whipped Cream and Berries

Make angel food cake in cupcake form and top with fresh berries and vanilla-bean whipped cream and you will have a heavenly little dessert.

Past Contributor
Instead of making angel food in the typical tube pan, try making mini versions in a muffin tin. The result is a pretty, airy, little cake that is a perfect vehicle for whipped cream and fresh berries. The cupcakes are beautiful all on their own, but with a dusting of powdered sugar, they are absolutely heavenly.

All you need is a box of Betty Crocker® white angel food cake mix, water, muffin tins and paper muffin-tin liners.

Preheat oven to 375°. Line a muffin pan with liners. In a large bowl, beat the cake mix and water on low speed for 30 seconds. Raise the speed to medium and beat for an additional minute. angel-food-cupcakes_2
Add the batter to the liners and fill ¾-full. angel-food-cupcakes_3
Bang the pans on the counter to remove air bubbles. angel-food-cupcakes_4
Bake for 12 to 20 minutes. When they are done, the tops will be golden brown and the cracks will be dry. Cool completely on a wire rack. angel-food-cupcakes_5
In a chilled medium bowl, beat whipping cream, sugar and vanilla-bean paste with an electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form. Transfer to a piping bag fitted with a large star tip. angel-food-cupcakes_6
