Strawberry Angel Dessert ~ Light and Yummy!

Today I decided to post a quick dessert that tastes great but does not have a lot of calories! I think you will find this easy to make. You can make an angel food cake from scratch or you can just buy a cake mix and whip that up. I suppose you could even buy an already made cake if you were really in a hurry.

1 envelope unflavored gelatin
3/4 cup cold water
1/2 cup sugar
1 package (10 ounces) frozen sliced strawberries, thawed
1 carton (8 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed
5 cups angel food cake cubes
Fresh strawberries, optional

In a saucepan, combine gelatin and cold water; let stand for 5 minutes to soften. Heat and stir over low heat just until gelatin dissolves. Remove from the heat; add sugar. Stir until dissolved. Stir in undrained strawberries. Chill until partially thickened.
Fold in whipped topping. Place cake cubes in a large bowl; pour strawberry mixture over cake and gently stir. Pour into an ungreased 8-in. square dish. Chill until firm.

Is it wrong of me to wish I could just stop by your house and let you cook for me?!

Farmchick said...

LOL no it's not wrong of can stop by anytime! Though...I don't think you could take the -35 below weather so maybe you better wait until summer! ;)
