Lemon Angel Cake Recipe

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.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:10-12 servings


  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon confectioners' sugar
  • 1 can (15-3/4 ounces) lemon pie filling
  • 1 prepared angel food cake (8 to 10 ounces)


  • 1. In a small bowl, beat cream until it begins to thicken. Add confectioners' sugar; beat until stiff peaks form. Place pie filling in a bowl; fold in whipped cream.
  • 2. Cut cake into two horizontal layers. Place bottom layer on a serving plate; top with 1 cup lemon mixture. Top with a second cake layer. Frost top and sides of cake with remaining lemon mixture. Chill for 15 minutes or until serving. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 10-12 servings.

"This is a delicious lemon dessert for anyone that likes lemon.

The only change I made was to use whipped topping instead of whipped cream.
It a very pretty dessert and easy to make for company and family alike."

"To simplify this recipe even more, I just used 1-1/4 cups of Cool Whip to mix with the lemon pie filling. Sometimes, I make the lemon filling with a box mix instead of canned."
