Angel Cake

Top Review by CoffeyCake

My father in law is on a low sodium diet and I have searched all over for a low sodium cake recipe for his birthday. I love this recipe! It was easy to make and turned out great! It was so nice and fluffy. I made a filling and topping with cool whip, pineapple and instant pudding mix and each serving is still less than 200mg of sodium. I will be using this recipe alot! Thanks!
