These delightful morsels are somewhere in between a bite of french toast and a piece of churro. If you have a sweet tooth and an affinity for frying things, you are at the right place. After eating a few I realized how good they would have been with a scoop of ice cream, add that to your grocery list for this recipe. We whipped these up in a matter of minutes and it added the perfect touch of sweetness to our Guardian Angel feast day.
St. Jerome says, “how great the dignity of the soul, since each one has from his birth an angel commissioned to guard it."
Enjoy this feast day treat while praying the Guardian Angel Prayer which you can find at the end of this recipe.
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes
Yields: 8 servings
1. Store bought Angel Food Cake
2. 3/4 cup sugar
3. 2 tbsps cinnamon
4. Vegetable oil for frying
Note: You can use another variation of oil like peanut, canola, or coconut.
Cut the Angel Food Cake into 1"-1.5" cubes.
Combine 3/4 cup sugar and 2 tbsps cinnamon in a separate bowl.
Drizzle a light amount of vegetable oil across the bottom of your pan on low to medium heat. This is where I started but turned it down once the pan reached my desired heat.
It doesn't take much with Angel Food Cake and they fry very quickly, and I only did two sides.
As they become golden brown take them out with a slotted spatula and put them on a plate lined with paper towels. These can become oily so give them a good pat with a paper towel before dunking them into the sugar and cinnamon.
You can serve this with a scoop of ice cream, a dusting of powdered sugar, or a drizzle of honey.
Angel of God, my guardian dear, to whom God’s love commits me here, ever this day be at my side, to light and guard, to rule and guide.
