This is a quick and pretty dessert to make, and has always gotten lots of compliments. Makes a excellent finale for a spicy entree. Pound cake may be substituted for Angel Food Loaf. ENJOY!

A really nice way to serve angel food cake. A delicious light dessert. I didn't really change a thing in the directions and it was pretty simple to fix! Thanks for sharing!
