The perfect summer dessert. Not your ordinary strawberry shortcake!

Top Review by SharleneW

Tried the shortcake tonight for a potluck. It went together very easy--especially after I decided it would be easier to gently break the angel food into small chunks instead of cutting into cubes--I think it came out the same in the end. I envisioned it being cake height, but in actuality it was only about an inch high and a bit difficult to serve in intact squares. As was mentioned in another review, served up in spoonfuls after failed attempt at squares. The flavor was very good though--everyone loved it. UPDATE: Made the a second time this week. Tried to be even more gentle when folding in the cake pieces. I put it in a 8" trifle-style bowl and I was happier with the results.
