Quicker Lemon Angel Food Supreme

Boxed angel food cake speeds prep time but retains the cake's home-baked taste. And the no-cook version of sauce uses handy prepared lemon pie filling and whipped topping for fuss-free fixing and old-fashioned results.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin

    This recipe worked so well. I used it to make a variation on Strawberry Shortcake and it was SOO GOOD! The cake is the light and fluffy Angel Food that my family loves, but the added lemon flavor really brought the whole thing up a notch. Will make this often.

    And I made it even quicker than this!: I bought a ready-made angel food cake and made the sauce (without extract) to serve along side the cake. I work full time with 3 kids and need to have foods made in a jiffy, especially on an activity night. All 3 kids have gobbled this up!
