I love grilled cheese. It’s one of my favorite comfort foods. There’s more to grilled cheeses than white bread and a slice of American cheese. This Angel Food Cake Grilled Cheese is a special grilled cheese treat perfect for your sweetie pie on Valentine’s Day.
You can show your love by bringing your sweetie breakfast in bed. And, what better way to do that than with an Angel Food Cake Grilled Cheese. Yes! Angel Food Cake!
Angel Food Cake Grilled Cheese
Have you ever had Angel Food Cake french toast? The light and fluffy, yet dense cake is just perfect for soaking up french toast batter. Usually it comes in an angel food cake pan with a center hole, which makes it a bit difficult to cut into slices that would work for a grilled cheese.
I was at the grocery store a few days ago checking out the “day old” racks and found a loaf of angel food cake. I immediately thought “grilled cheese” and ran to grab strawberries and cream cheese.
I had make french toast batter for another breakfast recipe (coming next week!), and I had enough leftover to try out my plan. So, I cut two slices of angel food loaf, soaked them in the leftover batter for a couple of minutes, and then cooked them into french toast. Once those were done, I sliced some cream cheese and strawberries and made my angel food cake sandwich. Then, I added butter to the skillet and turned my angel food cake sandwich into a grilled cheese.
I couldn’t stand it, so I hate half of it. It was divine! Nate was still lounging in bed on Saturday morning so I brought him the other half for breakfast in bed, and he devoured it, too. The kids were still asleep, so they have no idea what they missed. 😉
Next time, I think I’m going to add a spoonful of Nutella or possibly broken chocolate bar pieces. But as it is, it was heavenly.

I just made these for my family. I added a touch of whip cream for decoration. My family loved them. I used homemade strawberry jam because my town was sold out of strawberries.
