The original recipe came from my Aunt Margaret in Burbank. I have substituted an 8 oz container of lite Cool Whip, which makes this cake a relatively low calorie treat and a whole lot easier. Cooking time is actually time that fruit stands before folding into whipped topping. If you use a store bought angel cake, there is no baking involved!
