In Grande Prairie, Alberta, Debbie Segate relies on tangy lemon pie filling and a few other ingredients to quickly dress up a store-bought angel food cake. "If there's time, I use a boxed mix to bake the cake," she adds.
“This is a very festive dessert for Christmas,” assures Holly Dicke of Plain City, Ohio. “The angel food cake makes it less heavy than many traditional holiday recipes. My husband loves it, and I love it because it’s so simple and convenient during a hectic season!”
This chocolaty creation from Mary Relyea of Canastota, New York brings the look and taste of pure indulgence, but leaves the fat and calories at the door. A drizzling of rich chocolate glaze lends an elegant touch and will keep guests wanting more. With only 3 g of fat per slice, this is one treat you'll want to see year after year!
This homemade angel cake, filled with coconut and chocolate chips, is as light as a cloud. It’s so pretty with the sweetened whipped cream “frosting” piped around it. I love to bake breads and desserts for our large family.
