This dessert could NOT be any easier. What I particularly like about it is that it actually isn’t too sweet. For a savory food lover like me, it was perfect. The actual cake part is just two ingredients. I additionally made my own whipped cream, but this could be simplified even further by using store-bought canned whipped cream or Cool Whip.
Since this is so easy to prepare, it’s a good option if you’re entertaining. If you’re using your oven for the main meal, mix this and pop it in the oven before you sit down to eat. Then, this will be done and can sit out to cool for a little bit before serving. The timing works out well.
If you’re interested in making your own whipped cream like I did, here is the link to the recipe I used. You just need whipping cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract.
Here’s what you’ll need for the cake:
- One box of angel food cake mix (the kind where you only need to add water)
- One 21-oz can of pie filling (I used blueberry, but any kind of berry will work)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Farnenheit.
Mix the angel food cake mix (just the dry ingredients in the package, no need to prepare per the box instructions) and the pie filling.
Pour the mixture into a 9″ x 13″ baking dish. (I chose to rub some butter on the bottom and around the edges of the dish to help prevent sticking.)
Bake for about 30 minutes.
I truly hope you enjoy the simplicity, lightness, and deliciousness of this dessert!
