I was very pleased with this recipe. I never made an angel food cake or any other like this and I was very pleased with the outcome. I served it at a party to celebrate New Mexico's centennial and everyone raved about it. You would never know it is a lightened version. I will definitely make it again.

I'm pleased to report this got rave reviews, all around, even though it followed a massive and delicious Mexican feast. I'm not a huge meringue fan but the lemon zest does a lot for it! I worried, a bit, making the meringue, not having a candy thermometer, but got advice online re the cold water test and it worked fine. Was also aided, I think, by the suggestion to add a wee bit of honey or corn syrup to the sugar water to prevent crystallization- very helpful and very interesting science about invert sugars, I thought.

i was a bit unsure of what i was doing for most of the steps but it turned out WONDERFUL! i put it in the fridge after putting the milk mixture on top and then again after the merengue. was really a good dessert.

The spongy angel food cake texture was not good soaked in the milk. This is the worst tres leaches I have ever made. I threw it out and started over again with a different recipe.
