Reviews for Delicious Angel Food Dessert
"This dessert is certainly heavenly and a must for family gatherings. Try substituting pomegranite "rubies" for the pistachio nuts for an aesthetically pleasing presentation."
"To: Catherine5240, Try using any pie filling mixed with more fruit (apple pie filling chopped up with diced fresh apples) My husband loves this with blueberry filling and loads of fresh or frozen blueberries or peach filling and peaches."
"Can you make it with something else besides pineapple, I don't like pineapple or strawberries"
"I can't have sugar because I have an issue with chronic kidney infections but this awesome dessert is one that I can have once in a while. I love anything with pineapple or banana and this has both!! I will definitely be making this for every occasion. Thank You for the great recipe!"
"I suppose some dietticians would balk at the amount of fruit sugars in this recipe....however, when my husband (he had diabetes, lung cancer, and heart failure,) was alive, the desserts I made with sugar-free puddings and skim milk surely were better for him than the loaded pumpkin and pecan pies that were also a part of holiday fare. IIt is about balance. I will make this recipe. Combines some of my favorite things, and will be perfect for covered dish dinners."
"Ok ladies, for those who need a lesson in nutrition.....the words "Healthy or Low Calories" does not mean it is appropriate for a diabetic. Don't get your panties in a bunch, just don't make the dessert if it isn't appropriate for you! Beth RN"
"Loved it. Why do some pele have to complain over nothing? Did not change a thing!! 5 stars!!"
"Haven't tried it yet."
"For those of u who question caarbs;; there r 40grams not 40 carbs. It takes 15 grams to make one carb--so in reality there r less than 3 whole carbs!! I cook for a diabetic so know all about carbs!!!"
"Well, forget about it being "diabetic friendly" - this recipe can in no way be considered healthy. Forty carbs is way above anything healthy."
"I will not be making this...I agree with sassycurles that 40 grams of carbs is NOT diabetes friendly."
"this is to be diabetic at 40 g carbs. I think I must have had someone hack my computer. 40 carbs per serving does not a diabetic desset make. Matters not what it taste like."
"This was just ok. I would rather just have banana pudding. The cake seemed to get mushy. If it is being eaten right away, it may be ok, but having it a few days isn't good."
"I made this once for our family. It was a definite hit! Since Valentine's Day was coming up, I made 5 recipes for family and friends. Everyone that I gave it to loved it!It will be a recipe I will be keeping with my favorites...also VERY easy to make. Delicious!"
"Took it to a group campout, they loved it..is a keeper.."
"I am always looking for desserts which are low fat and tasty. This one hit the spot because my grandson who as a rule does not like bananas ate his full share with the comment "grandma always makes the best desserts." Thank you very much for making me a hero in my grandson's eyes."
"Very good. Would be very good in hot weather. Very light and refreshing."
"Made this for my Sunday School class. They loved it. Will make this again."
"I've made recipes similar to this before, and they all got soggy after one day, but this one didn't. I will definitely make it again!!"
"Very good, I "freshened" it up by adding a new banana and more chunks of angel food cake and it was as good as new...got lots of compliments on it and a friend is making it for her daughter's wedding reception!"
"Loved this recipe. The cake is somewhat sticky to cut, but the flavor is wonderful."
"We Loved this! The combination of flavors is Very yummy. I added an extra banana and topped it with toasted coconut instead of pecans. We will definitely have it agin soon."
"This dessert would be even better in the summer when the weather is hot."
"I added sliced strawberries to the fruit. It was very good. Will make again!"
"I made this dessert for a lunchen at work. Evryone loved it and asked for the recipe. Super dessert!"
"I give the recipe 5 stars. It was an excellent for diabetics. My friends also loved it.I will certainly make it again. I am having a dinner party next week and I am going to make this for dessert. Just a perfect taste. thank you so very much."
"It was delicious. I will certainly make it again!"
"Very delscious will make again."
"little dry...next time i would mix everything together first then put it in a pan"
"It was delicious! It does get soggy, but with pineapple juices seeping into the Angel Food Cake, still very good...going to try yellow cake or pound cake next."
"This was so delicious. My husband and I are diabetics, so I used pineapple in its own juice, sugar-free pudding and no-fat sugar-free whipped cream. The 9x13 pan was too much, so my grandchildren absorbed the most of it. I will make it again. Thank you."
"I made only half the recipe knowing 4 of us would barely get through that. Big mistake! I was lucky to get a mouthful! Absolutely delicious and so easy to prepare. Thank you!"
"It was delicious!!! I will make this again!!!"
"Wonderful taste. I added sliced strawberries on top of the pineapple & banana mixture.Topped it off with sugar free chocolate syrup.Almost like a banana split.Make only enough to eat as it does not keep well. It becomes very soggy if refrigerated overnight."
"This sounds very much like the Hawiian wedding cake recipe I have. Instead of the angel food cake, this topping is put on a yellow cake. Yummy. I will try this recipe soon."
"This is similar to my mom's cake only she made it with an angel food cake from a tube-type pan. She would slice the cake in half and hollow out the center bottom half and fill it back up with the crumbled left-over cake, pudding, crushed pineapple, (and possibly bananas) and replace all this back in the center hollowed-out section of the cake, put the top back on the cake and cover it completely with whipped cream or cool-whip. I got sick on it as a child as I ate a whole half of this cake - it was so good."
"I made this recipe for a church dinner and many wanted the recipe. Absolutely delicious!!"
"As I read this recipe I was so surprised, as my mother has made this for years as a Summer Dessert. Instead of using Angel Food, she would use soft Anisette sponge biscottis as the cake layer, all I hear, when serving this dish is praise. We all love it."
"this has been passed down in my family for 4 generations weve made it with drained canned fruit coctail and its so good with bananas and strawberries when in season. i've taken this to a number of pot luck dinners its kinda like a big pie... with extra helpings. this pinnapple version sounds yummy thanks :)"
"Angel Food cake is one of my family's favourite foods, and this dessert uses that cake to make it even better. It's delicious and definitely a keeper."
