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!
