Angel Food Cake Roll Recipe

There's always room for dessert-especially when it's this eye-catching frozen fare. "We like strawberry yogurt in the filling, but different flavors work well, too," suggests Joan Colbert. The make-ahead dessert is often requested at her Sigourney, Iowa home.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 15 min. + freezing YIELD:10 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package (16 ounces) angel food cake mix
  • 5 teaspoons confectioners' sugar
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) strawberry yogurt
  • 1 package (1 ounce) instant sugar-free vanilla pudding mix
  • 3 drops red food coloring, optional
  • 2 cups reduced-fat whipped topping

Directions

  • 1. Line a 15x10x1-in. baking pan with waxed paper. Prepare cake according to package directions.
  • 2. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched. Cool for 5 minutes.
  • 3. Turn cake onto a kitchen towel dusted with confectioners' sugar. Gently peel off waxed paper. Roll up jelly-roll style in the towel, starting with a short side. Cool on a wire rack.
  • 4. In a large bowl, whisk the yogurt, pudding mix and food coloring if desired. Fold in whipped topping.
  • 5. Unroll cake; spread filling evenly over cake to within 1/2 in. of edges. Roll up. Cover and freeze. Remove from freezer 30 minutes before slicing. Yield: 10 servings.

"I used sugar free cheesecake pudding and added 1/4 c sugar free strawberry preserves for more flavor - Great! had to beat with stick mixer to get pudding creamier - I also used Greek yogurt for richer flavor - when I added pudding to yogurt it was so lumpy a hand wisk wouldn't cut it! Be ready to get mixer out or stick blender worked great"

"Made this for a small group....Nothing left to take home !! I tweeked a bit...used banana cream pudding, added some cut up bananas and strawberry bits to the yougurt mix, along with an extra 4 oz of strawberry yogurt. Absolutely delicious! One note: In the future, for presentation, I would cut a thin slice off each end, to make it look even prettier. Otherwise, the filling does not butt up to the end of the cake roll, due to the way the filling is spread."

"The Angle foodRecipewe really enjoyed. It keeps so well frozen and whipped it out for evening guests and slices and looks so special on the plate. I agree s little stronger strawberry flavour would enhanse. Maybe just slice in a few fresh raw strawberrys with the yugurt.Weight watchers even approved the recipe."

I did change a few things. I added fresh sliced strawberries & if you want a goos strawberry pink color you need to add about 8 drops of red food color."

"This is the most incredible dessert! It is very easy to make and the presentation is just beautiful! I sprinkled each slice with toasted sliced almonds, placed two fanned-out strawberries on each plate and dusted lightly with powdered sugar. We had a diabetic in our party and I was looking for something everyone could enjoy. It received raves! It does make too much cake batter for a 15 x 10 pan. I used an 18 x 13 pan and still had some batter left over. Be SURE not to overcook, as the wax paper will be more difficult to remove. I can't wait to make this again!!!"

"Re: Angel Food cake Roll

I prepared the cake mix according to directions, but found that when it baked, it oozed over the edges of cookie pan and was much to thick to roll properly. It completely cracked through at 3 different places.I managed to get it together, placed the filling in it and rolled it back up. It is in my freezer and I'm sure it will taste good, but am not sure I'd make it again. IF I do, I will use half of the angel food cake batter"
