    It sounds delicious and I will probably make it… but I think I will use homemade lemon curd instead of pudding and make it a chocolate lemon angel food cake

    This was delicious! I made this one night for dessert and found out that half of my family doesn't like angel food cake, but those of us who did eat it loved it! It was really good, extremely simple to make, and it didn't last long! I think it could definitely be made using sugar free ingredients to reduce carbs.

    This was an amazing treat! I made for my Algebra 2 teacher last year and well. . . . Lets just say she never got it. It was amazing! And its so simple, probably the reason why I love this recipe so much.

    I made this cake using sugarfree pudding and sugarfree hot fudge ice cream topping. It was terrific and so easy to make. My guests thought I was in the kitchen for hours. My diabetic friends were also very thrilled.
