The fluffy and fruity Angel Food Cake unfolds its flavors when combined with a frizzy Prosecco. Its effervescent palate picks up the fruity aroma of the strawberries.
Preheat oven to 160°C/325°F. Beat egg whites with some of the lemon juice and a pinch of salt until soft peaks form. Here it is important that the bowl and beater are free of any grease to reach the desired consistency!
