Step 1

To a large bowl or batter bowl, add the angel food cake mix, water, and egg.

Step 2

Stir until a dough forms. You can do this by hand or with a hand mixer or stand mixer on medium speed.

Step 3

Use a cookie scoop to drop spoonful portions of cake batter onto the baking sheet, spacing them 2-3 inches apart.

Step 4

Bake the cookies for 8 minutes, remove them from the oven, and transfer the baking sheets to wire racks.

Allow to cool for 15 minutes before removing the cookies using a cookie spatula.


You might also want to use a reliable oven thermometer to make sure that your baking temperature is accurate, especially when your oven is old and has not been recalibrated in a long while.


  • Do not overmix the mixture. Mix it just until combined.
  • Always use a prepared baking sheet. Use parchment paper, a silicone mat or non-stick cooking spray. The last thing you want to happen is for these goodies to stick on your baking sheet!

Different Variations

  • Chocolate – Make it more fun and exciting by tossing in a handful of chocolate chips into the dough! You can use milk chocolate, dark chocolate, butterscotch, peanut butter chips or even white chocolate chips. Do note that it’s best to use mini chocolate chips because they’re lighter.
  • Decorate – Dress the cookies by adding sprinkles prior to baking. You can also drizzle colored icing after baking them. Put some stars, smiley faces, or your kids’s names!
  • Texture – For some crunch, you can toss in some toasted nuts or coconut.
  • Weight Watchers-Friendly – You can make these angel food cookies into a Weight Watchers friendly recipe. There are many recipes that call for sugar free orange soda but I don’t drink diet sodas. I think, on my WW plan at least, they would still be fairly low points with my recipe.
  • More Flavor – Use almond extract, vanilla extract, or other extracts like mint or orange to add even more flavor.
  • 2-Ingredients – You can substitute the water and egg with flavored soda. That cuts the ingredients to only two. Like my Soda Cake, it’s a fun way to add more flavor and help use less ingredients.
