Angel Lush Cake



Today you get the most fabulous and world's easiest cake recipe ever!! Let's me also state for the record that I don't like cake. I don't like cool whip (or fat free cheese or margarine for that matter). I don't like pudding. So knowing all of my dislikes should prove to you that this truly is a fabulously delicious cake recipe!! Ready?? Sure? OK then....


Angel Lush Cake
Prep time 15 minutes, plus refrigerating


Ingredients:

* 1 package (4- serving size) vanilla flavored instant pudding mix
* 1 can (20 oz) crushed pineapple in juice, undrained
* 1 cup thawed cool whip (or your grocery store's cheaper version works fine too)
* 1 package prepared angel food cake
* 10 small strawberries (or mandarin oranges or raspberries or ...)

Directions:

* Mix dry pudding mix and pineapple with juice in medium bowl. Gently stir in whipped topping.

* Cut cake horizontally into three layers.

* Place bottom cake layer, cut side up, on serving plate. Spread 1 1/3 cups of the pudding mixture onto cake layer; cover with middle cake layer. Spread 1 cup of the pudding mixture onto middle cake layer; top with remaining cake layer. S[read with remaining pudding mixture on top layer. Add berries/fruit to top. Refrigerate at least 1 hour or until ready to serve. Makes 10 servings.




My aunt got this from her sister-in-law but she wasn't sure where the recipe originated so I cannot give credit. Probably a magazine. We are very much a pull a recipe out of a random magazine family. That's how we roll! Hehe. Anyway, I tasted it to be polite at a family dinner a few weeks ago and about fell over as I shoveled the entire thing in my face! Angel food cake is my exception to the "I think cake is gross" rule. Love it. So last week I made a cupcake version to take to my neighborhood park dinner. They were a HUGE hit! And so easy. I just added a raspberry on top and called it a day. And because I didn't use all of the "frosting" on the cupcakes, I had half a bowl left over the next day. So I scooped it into a dish and tossed in berries and smiled as a I found my new favorite summer treat. Oh and if you so desire (and I do!), this can totally be a fat free treat! So please try this girls. It's so light and refreshing and easy peasy!

all of your food sounds amazing- one day I might just appear with an empty plate, fork, knife and a sad-orphan look on my face outside of your kitchen window so you give me some of your delicious creations!
