Prep Angel Food Cake Layer

(1st layer)

  • 2 loaves of angel food cake

Angel food cake can come in bundt cake form or in loaves. I purchase 2 loaves and tear them up into bite-sized pieces – torn pieces should not be super large but not too small.

Place in a bowl or on a plate and set aside.

Prep Strawberries with Strawberry Sauce

  • 3 pints of strawberries
  • extra pint for top decoration of layers (optional)

Once strawberries are washed, quartered, and placed in a bowl, add 3/4th cup Strawberry PRESERVES (not jelly) to the bowl and mix.

Make sure all strawberries are lightly covered in preserves.

Once all three layers are prepped, it’s time to assemble the dessert!

Take a large casserole-style baking dish and add half of the angel food cake chunks to the bottom of the dish. 

Smother with half the strawberries. 

For the last layer, add half of the whipped cream mixture and smooth with a spatula.

Feel free to add one last layer of decorative strawberries if you like and want it to look fancy.

  1. I added a capful of vanilla to my whipped topping. The whole thing is delicious! Will definitely make again!

  2. Trish Bogue says:

    If I wanted to make the angel food cake instead of buying one should I use 1 or 2 boxes?

    1. Trisha Haas says:

      I havent done it, but I would look on the back and see how much cake it makes. Its likely 2 boxes if its one cake per box.

  3. I have never left a comment about a recipe before but this was so delicious and a huge hit at 2 different parties I made it for, I must give you your props. I made it exactly as written, only adjusting amounts for smaller gathering. The strawberries are the most time consuming, I do those before if possible. I thought it was going to be too sweet but based on feedback, it is just right and soooo yummy. I used to buy angel food cake , put strawberries with sugar on top and then whipping cream. I was looking for something to elevate, I found it! Thank you!

  4. How many servings does this recipe make. I will be making it to serve 4 people and would not mind having a little left over because it sounds like a fantastic recipe so I am trying to decide if I should cut the recipe in half

    1. Trisha Haas says:

      Honestly its a lot of food. I would say 10-12 people. You could cut it in half for 4!
