Angel Food Cake with Strawberries

Let’s face it – we like sweets. We also don’t want to be flabby and overweight.

So when we eat sweets, we feel bad. 😦

How about a luscious cake (or cupcakes!!) that are sweet and delicious and make you happy….all while being low calorie?

Yes, really. It tastes REALLY good. See?

Ingredients:
1 box of angel food cake mix, plus whatever else you need. Usually water.
1 box low or non-fat chocolate pudding mix.
Skim milk to make that pudding mix.
Low or Non-Fat cool whip (small tub).
Fresh strawberries.

FOR FROSTING:
Mix together equal parts chocolate pudding and cool whip until smooth. Yeah, it’s that easy.

Alrighty. First things first. Do you have an angel food cake pan? No? Borrow one, if possible. Otherwise, you could try a bundt pan or a springform pan, but an angel food cake pan is best.

You could do these as cupcakes, too, but don’t use the little muffin cups. Doesn’t work well, to be honest.

In this method, we tried to make cupcakes, and used the rest of the batter to make a cake in a springform pan. I will say now that the batter fell and wasn’t all fluffy, so this cake is low and dense.

Cupcakes, filled and frosted:

Ideally, you will make this cake in an angel food cake pan, and cool upside down, then release from the pan.

Then, cut it in half horizontally, and dig a trench in the bottom half.

Fill the trench with the frosting and some cut up strawberries. Seal the layer with a little bit of frosting, and place the top back on.

Frost the outside, and decorate with strawberry slices.

Slice and enjoy!
