Prep Time1 hr
chilling time3 hrs
Total Time4 hrs
- 16 oz. Duncun Hines angel food cake mix, prepared (or 1 store bought, already made angel food cake)
- 3 cups strawberries, stems removed and sliced
- 1 cup sugar
- 6 oz. strawberry jello (2 small boxes)
- 2 cups hot water
- 16 oz. heavy whipping cream
- additional strawberries for garnish if desired.
Bake and cool angel food cake or buy a prepared one. This mix can be done in a 9 x 13 pan if you do not have a tube pan, just be sure NOT to grease the pan with whichever pan you use.
Let the cake cool for at least and hour and a half. Cut into 1 inch cubes.
In a large bowl add the sliced strawberries, sugar, strawberry jello and hot water. Stir until jello is dissolved. Let this cool in the fridge until syrupy or not longer warm, mine took about 40 minutes.
In another large bowl add the whipping cream. Using a hand mixer, beat on high speed until stiff peaks form.
Add the whipped cream into the jello mixture and gently fold it in. Keep mixing very gently until a uniform color forms.
In a 9 x 13 pan add half of the cubed angel food cake. Then pour and spread over half of the jello mixture. Then add the remaining angel food cake and the remaining jello mixture.
Chill for at least 3 hours or overnight. Cut into squares and serve!
You can dice the strawberries if desired or leave them completely out if they aren't in season at your grocery store, the strawberry jello will be plenty of strawberry flavor.
