There's no better topping for fluffy angel food cake than a homemade berry sauce as well as a medley of fresh, colorful berries. For this recipe, strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries are called for, but you can use whatever you have on hand. If you use frozen raspberries to make the sauce, just be sure to allow about 20 minutes for them to thaw at room temperature. After blending the sugar, lemon juice, and raspberries together, simply strain the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve to get a vibrant, sweet, delicious sauce. You can also make your favorite angel food cake from scratch if you really want to put this recipe over the top.
