I have a delicious, simple and healthy dessert idea for you.
The other night I wanted something easy to make for dessert, but I did not want it to be packed with calories.
I also had strawberries I needed to use up.
So this is what I came up with… Strawberry Angel Food Cake.
(While you’re here, make sure you check out all of my real easy recipes that are perfect for busy school night as we head back to school.)
- 1 angel food cake, prepared
- 1 pint of strawberries, cleaned and sliced in half
- 1 container of whipped cream (like Cool Whip)
Take your angel food cake and cut the top off about 1/4 th of the way down. Save that top layer because we are going to add it back on.
Then, use a knife to cut out an inner ring like the picture below.
Take your fresh strawberry slices and fill that center cut out full of the fruit.
You totally could use sugary strawberry puree, that would be so delicious, but I was trying to cut down the sugar.
Place the top layer back on the cake.
Use whipped cream and spread it all over the cake.
Add some fresh strawberry halves to the top of the cake.
Slice it up. Your children and husband will love it and they will be so surprised by the hidden strawberries inside!
We devoured every last slice!
