Janice's Warm Wild Blueberry Sauce with Grilled Angel Food Cake

Grilling the low fat low calorie angel food cake over coals creates beautiful brown stripes of caramelized crispness on the outside while slightly softening the sugar spun insides of the cake, and when combined with warm blueberry sauce it is simply to die for good.

Take Angel Food Cake to a totally new level of beauty and deliciousness.

Slice the cake into 10 slices and grill 2-4 minutes on each side. How long depends upon how hot your coals are, do not put the cake slices too close to the coals and watch carefully so that the cake does not burn or flame on.

The sauce (below) can be prepared ahead of time and then just reheated, or made fresh in about 10 minutes.

Warm Wild Blueberry Sauce

Ingredients -

2 10 oz packages of frozen wild blueberries
1/3 C orange juice
1/3 C sugar
2 T lemon juice
4 t cornstarch

Directions -

Combine blueberries, juice and sugar in a medium saucepan. Cover and gradually bring to a boil over medium high heat, stir every now and then. After it begins to boil, reduce heat and simmer for four minutes.

While it's simmering, combine the lemon juice and cornstarch in a small bowl. Add this to the berries after the four minute simmer concludes and return to a boil for a minute or two stirring often. Remove from heat and either use it right away, or cool and put in the fridge for reheating while the angel food cake is grilling. Can be made 3-4 days in advance.


This sauce can be used on anything you want - pancakes, oatmeal, cakes, ice cream, cheesecake, or eat it out of hand with a spoon. Lovely and remember, blueberries are good for you. Don't use a wooden spoon that you love very much while stirring as it will turn very purple.

One enterprising friend of mine just toasted the angel food cake in the toaster oven since she does not have a grill. You will miss that smokey flavor, but it sure will work in a pinch...or when the weather does not permit grilling!
