Maple Bourbon Walnut Angel Food Cake

There were two birthday desserts that were staples in our house growing up – chocolate éclair and angel food cake. I often opted for the angel food cake and my mom would make her special raspberry glaze to drizzle over the top. Seriously, my mouth is watering just thinking about it!

Over the years, angel food cake is still a family favorite, but my sister has up the ante by making it from scratch! Yes, from scratch! I’m still not at her level and cut corners by baking a box mix, but I try to make up for it with the icing. This time around I whipped together a maple bourbon glaze and sprinkled walnuts on top of the cake. It’s interesting how the simplest tweak to a recipe can make it feel fresh and new.

Last weekend may have been my first trip to Denver, but I know it won’t be my last! I’m still in awe of everything this city has to offer. Only a few more hours until it’s officially the weekend! How will you be kicking off your #stpatricksday celebrations? St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner! Celebrate with a cozy cup of Irish coffee. Head over to the blog for the recipe. (Link in profile) It wasn’t just the altitude that took my breath away. These Rocky Mountain views were stunning.
