1 Betty Crocker Angel Food Cake Mix
1 ¼ cups of cold water
In a medium size bowl, add package of Betty Crocker Food Cake Mix and add in water. Mix ingredients with electric mixer on medium for 30 seconds, then on high for 2 minutes until light and fluffy. Make sure to get rid of all remaining air bubbles by smoothing over the surface with a knife.
Pour the mixture into a 13 x 9 x 2 inch pan and put it into the oven. Preheat the oven to 350ºF and bake for 50 minutes. You will know it’s ready when the top is lightly browned.
Set and let the cake cool for 5-10 minutes. When cooled, cut into small, square sized pieces.
After the cake is prepared, place them into the dehydrator and leave them there for 4 hours.
At first we did not know if dehydrating a cake would work but it ended up tasting really good. It tasted just like normal angel food cake but the texture was a bit different. It was sometimes hard to break off parts of the cake but the flavour was excellent. We were pleasantly surprised at how delicious it was. It only took 4 hours to dehydrate in the dehydrator and we did not have many issues. Except for when we were dehydrating the food at school, someone stole a few pieces of our cake so we had to break pieces apart so that everyone in the class could have a bit of our cake.
