Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 3 minutes
Yield 12 servings


  • 1 prepared angel food cake, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • oil for frying (vegetable, canola, coconut, or peanut oil)


  1. In a small bowl, stir together the sugar and cinnamon.

  2. In a deep pot, heat about 2 inches of oil to about 350 degrees. Drop angel food cubes a batch at a time into the hot oil and cook until golden brown. This usually only takes about 10 seconds. Flip and cook the other side. Remove with a metal strainer and place on paper towel lined plates. Toss in cinnamon sugar immediately (this helps to keep it stick). Continue with remaining angel food cake cubes.
