Layered Angel Cake

This  British Angel cake is a layered sponge cake generally made of 2 or 3 layers and is in my favourite colours white, pink and yellow with a thin layer of white cream. Traditionally the Angel cake is sold either in long bars or small slices.

The American Angel cake is made by whipping egg whites but not so the British cake. The advocates of the cake claim that any sponge cake will not give you the taste or flavour Angel Cake.

The cake adapted from here needs the following ingredients in the following measures however since my oven cannot hold 2 pans at a time I made 3 parts of the ingredients and then bake each cake individually. And hence my instructions are for an individual bake.

In case your oven is big enough or you can get the pan that has divisions( lucky you, keep it hidden when I visit) to bake these together then you can make the batter then divide into 3 parts, colour individually and then bake.

The reason why I am posting this recipe now is that I am participating in Bake-a- ton. We are a group of bloggers and every year in December Srivalli, our gang leader organises it. We bake and post 3 days a week. The only condition is baked!!! Do try it out and join the fun.
