Creamy Strawberry-Filled Angel Cake
As my Grandmother used to say, "It's just a bit of fluff". But this angel food
cake is really delicious and so low in calories. The recipe called for
raspberries, but strawberries are our favorite, so use any "berry" you want!!!
1 cup boiling water
1 package (4 ounces) sugar-free strawberry Jello
1/2 cup cold water
1 pint (2 cups) strawberries
1 container (8 ounces) frozen fat-free whipped topping, thawed
1 round (10 inch diameter) angel food cake
Additional berries, if desired
Pour boiling water over gelatin in large bowl; stir until gelatin is dissolved.
Stir in cold water. Refrigerate about 1 hour or until
thickened but not set. Fold 1 pint of strawberries and half of the whipped
topping into the gelatin mixture. Refrigerate 15 minutes or until thickened but
not set. Split cake horizontally to make 3 layers. Fill layers with gelatin
mixture. Spoon or pipe
remaining whipped topping onto top of cake. Garnish with extra berries. Cover
and refrigerate until serving. Makes 12 servings.
