A classic recipe to conquer! Prepared with only 6 ingredients, this angel food cake is pillow-soft and airy. She’s tall, tender, and timeless. The magic is in the details, so following the exact recipe is imperative.

Let’s Review the May Baking Challenge

May 2019 Sally’s Baking Challenge Recipe: Scones

May’s baking challenge was dedicated to homemade scones. And when I say dedication, I’m talking about over 1,000 of you! Each new month brings more and more participants. It’s truly wonderful to see thousands of bakers unite with 1 recipe. Several of you had never made scones before and I was thrilled to watch you try something new. You had the option of choosing your own flavor and your creativity certainly shined. Some of my favorites were jalapeño cheddar scones, maple cranberry pecan scones, and mint chocolate chunk scones.

Thank you for making these challenges so fun and successful. They would be nothing without you!

One of my favorite recipe reviews came from reader Alyssa:

“My husband and I made the chocolate chip scone recipe this weekend, and they turned out SO WELL! We followed the recipe to a tee and had so much fun baking these. Can’t wait to try out some of the other varieties!”

We gathered as many scone photo entries as we could and included them below. (Email is the best way to guarantee your photo will be included!)

Giveaway winner for May is Nicole and she has been notified. 🙂

Reader Questions and Reviews

  1. In all my 35+ years of baking I’ve only made one angel food cake from scratch and that was about 5-6 years ago. My son declared he would never eat another box mix again after knowing a homemade one was so delicious and and a 100 times better! Looking forward to trying your recipe.

  2. This will be a perfect chance to try something new for me, especially since it is almost fresh strawberry season here, and there is nothing like angel food cake and fresh locally grown strawberries. Thanks!

  3. Another great success! It turned out amazing! Thank you Sally for such great recipes ❤️

  4. I have baked from scratch all my life (I am 58) but have not been successful making Angel Food Cake. When you posted June‘s challenge, I decided to give it a try (again!). I am happy I did because my Angel Food Cake Muffins turned out great thanks to all of your tips! I even made half the recipe and it worked. (To insure accuracy, I weighed the flour and sugar). The muffins are delicious! So much better then store bought or a mix!! Thank you!!

  5. Homemade Angel Foos Cake! Yum! This recipe was sooooo easy to follow, just like all of your recipes. Followed the recipe and watched the video and SUCCESS! The perfect ending to our Father’s Day dinner. Thank you Sally!

    1. What a sweet ending to Father’s Day! Thanks so much for participating in this month’s challenge and also leaving a review, Kathy! 🙂

  6. Made this with strawberry sauce and fresh whipped cream!
    Everyone I shared it with loved it!!
    It’s almost gone, and I think I’m making another this evening.

  7. Finally got the nerve to try the angel food cake. It turned out perfect. I had heard nightmares of exploding in oven, falling and just epic fails.

  8. I just made this tonight with some lemon curd and berry sauce! It turned out amazing, and it was my first time making it!
