This angel dessert is a wonderful treat when fresh strawberries are readily available. Every time I make this pretty strawberry angel food cake, someone asks for the recipe. —Theresa Mathis, Tucker, Georgia

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 5 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 package (3 ounces) strawberry gelatin
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 pounds fresh strawberries, hulled, divided
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 carton (12 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 1 prepared angel food cake (8 to 10 ounces), cut into 1-inch cubes

Directions

  1. For glaze, in a large saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch and gelatin. Add water and stir until smooth. Cook and stir over medium-high heat until mixture begins to boil. Cook and stir 1-2 minutes longer or until thickened. Remove from the heat; cool completely. Cut half the strawberries into quarters; fold into glaze.
  2. In a small bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Beat in condensed milk until blended. Fold in whipped topping.
  3. In a 4-qt. clear glass bowl, layer half the cake cubes, glaze and cream mixture. Repeat layers. Cut remaining strawberries in half and arrange over the top. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight.
