    SusieQusie's Note:

    This was originally a recipe from Sandra Lee's Semi-Homemade Cooking. I took many liberties with both the ingredients and preparation. I'm sure it would be great with many combinations of fruit, fruit juice & gelatin. Peach just happens to be my favorite of the day.

    1. 1
      Heat peach nectar in microwave for 1-2 minutes or until very hot but not boiling.
    2. 2
      Pour over gelatin and stir till combined.
    3. 3
      Cool in fridge for 15 minutes.
    4. 4
      Cut the peach slices into 1/2" pieces.
    5. 5
      Stir peaches into ricotta then add in the gelatin mixture.
    6. 6
      Chill another 30 minutes or until just set.
    7. 7
      Meanwhile, using a serrated knife, cut top off angel food cake & hollow out center leaving a 1" edge.
    8. 8
      Eat the leftover cake pieces as a snack while you finish up the recipe.
    9. 9
      Spoon cooled gelatin/ricotta/peach mixture into angel food shell & replace the top.
    10. 10
      I usually have a couple of tablespoons too much filling. That's the cook's snack # 2.
    11. 11
      **Tip - if you find that the center edge of the cake tries to fold in under the weight of the filling, place a juice glass in the hollow center. Remove it before serving.
    12. 12
      Stir extract into whipped topping & frost the cake.
    13. 13
      Garnish with peach slices, if desired.
    14. 14
      Chill at least 1 hour before serving & keep any leftovers refrigerated.
    15. 15
      Note: I've made this in a hurry & rather than hollowing out the cake, I cut it up into 1" cubes & layered it with the filling for a trifle type dessert.

      I liked the taste of this but had some real problems with the cake trying to fold in and I just didn't understand the bit about using the hollowed glass to prevent the cake from falling in:-( Sorry. Anyway this makes a decent trifle which is what it ended up being for me. Still, we weren't wowed by the ricotta, gelatin fruit filling. I really like the idea of this cake so the next time I will tweak it a bit and use my sister-in- law's Betty Crocker Bake'n' Fill cake pans.
