The first local strawberries were at the farmer's market yesterday. So of course I bought some.

And they are so good. So much better than the ones shipped in from the West Coast.

Strawberries need angle food cake. I made one (from a mix. I've never made angel food cake from scratch for the simple reason that I wouldn't know what to do with the dozen left over egg yolks). Angel food cakes need to be cooled off upside down. Beer bottles are very good for that.

And the finished product was a lovely, airy, angel food cake.

Topped with strawberries and, for some of us, whipped cream (I skip that part), it made a very tasty dessert.
