"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Personal Notes:
This recipe was given to me by Aunt Thelma, but her note said, "this is your Aunt Lottie's Angel Food Cake, you may not remember it, but I am sure your mother does!"
The following is a powder sugar icing that Mom often puts on her sister's angel food cakes. Mix with electric mixer: one box of powdered sugar, a melted stick of butter, enough milk to make a spreading consistency, and 1 tsp. vanilla.
