This is a delicious and quick dessert that you can put together if you need a last-minute dessert for a get-together potluck, or if hubs need a dessert for work!
I used an Angel Food Cake mix, but you can always use a store-bought, or make one from scratch. The last time I made an Angel Food Cake, I was about 10, as I was beating the egg whites, whipping away, I wasn’t holding the bowl and the whole thing flipped over onto me and the floor, I started over, I think I used 2 dozen eggs, the second time wasn’t any better, the whole thing came out rock hard.
So, try it, you may have a better experience. The cake mix can’t get any easier. Add water!! The only thing I recommend is that you use a large bundt pan. Mine wasn’t large enough obviously, Angel Food Cakes really rises and puffs up, I quickly removed my cake mix batter from the oven as it was rising and poured half into another bundt pan! Whew, success!
ANGEL LUSH CAKE RECIPE
This angel lush cake is one of the easiest desserts I have ever made! In short, it’s just angel food cake with pineapple and vanilla pudding. I love to top it with strawberries, love that pop of color and taste. Top it off with cool whip, whipped cream, or your favorite frosting. Besides my Pineapple Bundt Poke Cake recipe it’s a favorite crushed pineapple cake recipe.
Just follow directions on the cake mix, or make your own Angel Food Cake by scratch, depending on how much time you have.
WHAT IS A LUSH CAKE?
It’s a simple cake with layers of whipped cream and pudding. This lush cake recipe calls for whipped topping and pudding set between layers of angel food cake that you can either buy ready-to-eat at the store or make yourself. Cakes like this are an easy way to make one, but you can also create lasagna-style layered cakes which are popular too like my Best No-Bake Peanut Butter Chocolate Lasagna or No-Bake Oreo Cookie Delight.
Cut cake in half, spread pudding mixture between layer and top of the cake.
Add sliced Strawberries.
Refrigerate for 1 hour.
