Lemon Raspberry Angel Cake

IMG_0571You know how I’m doing this whole weight loss thing? Yeah, it’s really hard to do when you think about cake 24/7. …not that I’m speaking from experience or anything. AHEM. Anyways, I made this cake the other day that wasn’t completely destined to kill my diet. #yippityskippity #shockerIknow

Angel food cake is basically egg whites, sugar and a bunch of air. How do I know this? Because I’ve made a few of these from scratch in my day. Also, you take a bite of one of these suckers and it feels like you’ve eaten nothing. So you proceed to eat until, well, no comment.

To add a little creamy goodness to said angel food cake, I simply mixed a little fat free cool whip together with some sugar free lemon pudding and used this as a frosting to completely cover the cake.  I topped the whole thing with fresh raspberries and a sprinkling of powdered sugar and shoveled the whole thing into my piehole. Ok, almost the whole thing. And, I still felt hungry afterwards. But, at least my sweet tooth craving was satisfied. Hallelijah. And all was good in the world.

Feel free to make one of these cakes using real cream and non-sugar free lemon pudding. It would taste better, but be a butt load more calories. Totes up to you. If I was -42 pounds, then I would definitely make this with the real shtuff. Go figure. Anyways, here’s how you make it:

IMG_0519Start by whisking some sugar free lemon pudding into 1 1/2 cups cold milk. After a minute or two, it should be smooth and thick.
IMG_0521Then grab some of this stuff…IMG_0525 and fold it into the pudding to create a light and fluffy mixture.
IMG_0526 Now comes the cake part! Grab a store bought or homemade angel food cake.
IMG_0535Slice it into 3 even layers and fill each layer with that lemony mixture.IMG_0574Spread more of it around the edges, top with raspberries and sprinkle with a little powdered sugar! Voila! Cake. Refrigerate until you’re ready to serve and that’s it 🙂

Here’s the printable. Enjoy your weekend!

  10. Quite a delightful recipe. I will be using lemon curd as opposed to the lemon pudding. Can’t wait to put it together. I have found that baking a boxed angel food cake is the best! They rise so high and taste delicious.

  11. Gorgeous colors!! I actually love angel food cake, just rarely eat. I guess because it’s not a popular cake mix come holiday time? 😉 I was looking for something light and fresh and I love the idea of lemon pudding mixed with cool whip!!

    I’m whipping this up this weekend!
