Strawberry Angel Cake makes an easy, elegant dessert recipe perfect for entertaining or enjoying with your family.
As the weather gets warmer here in the south, I try my best not to use my oven as much. But, I still want to serve delicious desserts when we invite friends over for supper. Enter this Strawberry Angel Cake.
This is a dessert that my Mama made during the summer when I was growing up and one that I hadn’t made in a long while.
We had invited Mrs. Melba, the lady who kept Little Buddy when I worked, over for supper one night this past week and I wanted to make a simple dessert that I felt sure she would love. I remembered how much she liked strawberries and I knew she loved the lightness of angel food cake.
Rather than serving a fussy dessert, I knew this strawberry angel cake would be light, refreshing and ultra easy to prepare!
You just won’t believe how easy it is! Or delicious.
I used Sugar-Free Cool Whip to make this recipe even quicker and easier, but you could easily use homemade whipped cream if you prefer.
To say it was a hit would be a major understatement.
Here’s how I made my Strawberry Angel Cake. Make it soon. You’ll love it!

But, do you have a recipe for Angel Cake please ? I would like to give this a go!
YUM!! Reminds me of being a kid. We always got angel cake with strawberries for our birthdays. 🙂
Do you have to freeze the cake after frosting with cool whip
I freeze the cake, Deronda, to prevent the Cool Whip from melting.
How far in advance can you make this cake?
Jeni, I freeze the cake until right before I am ready to serve it so the Cool Whip or whipped cream has the texture and taste of ice cream. I would make it about 2 days ahead of serving it.
