I found this recipe while I was preparing a final meal in my Foods 2 class. We all loved it a lot. It belonged to a group member's grandma- a family favorite.
- 1 box angel food cake
- 3 (3 ounce) boxes strawberry Jell-O gelatin dessert (regular size)
- 4 1⁄2 cups water (boiling)
- 1 pint strawberry (fresh, cut in halves)
- 1 (8 ounce) container Cool Whip (thawed)
- Prepare angel food cake according to directions given on box.
- Once cooled completely, remove from pan and tear up into bite sized pieces.
- Place them into a 9 x 13' pan.
- Dissolve jello in the boiling water, which should take about a minute.
- Put the jello in the fridge until it has a pudding-like consistency.
- This should take about 1 hour to 1 1/2.
- Add the strawberries into the jello and pour over the cake pieces.
- If you want, you can spread the Cool Whip over the top.
- Refrigerate at least 3 hours or until set.
- Serve, and enjoy!
This was very good and light! I did not use the cool whip. I doubled the amount of strawberries and used squirt cream on top of each piece. Very pretty dessert! We thought it would be nice to make it and add fresh blueberries for a red, white and blue dessert. The only thing I would do differently next time is to add a little more water, maybe 1/2 cup, as the jello part is extremely firm.
This is a wonderful recipe. I used a store bought angel food cake and sugar free jello. This is an awesome diabetic dessert. I didn't put Cool Whip on the dessert but had it available for those who wanted it. This goes in the recipe box and will be made many more times. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
Hi, I am the one who posted this recipe. I just wanted to say that personally, I don't use the Cool Whip. Also, I use both a 9 by 11 inch pan and a smaller pan, like a 7 by 11 inch. That way, it seems a little more evenly spread out. Ok then, I just wanted to let you know what I myself do! Bec
