Berry Easy Angel Dessert Recipe

Berry Easy Angel Dessert Recipe
When I saw some beautiful berries at my local grocery store, I remembered an angel food cake dessert from many years ago that was easy to put together and absolutely luscious. The following Berry Easy Angel Dessert makes perfect use of the seasonal berries that are available from spring through summer. This dessert is very light, and can be made a day or two ahead. It’s just the best thing to take to a potluck or backyard gathering. It’s also beautiful and mouthwatering.
Although you can bake your own angel food cake at home, ready-made cakes can be picked up in any bakery and that makes this a no-bake dessert that is wonderful in hot weather.

12 Servings

3/4 cup water
1 3 oz. package raspberry or blackberry gelatin
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup ice cubes

2 cups heavy cream, whipped to stiff peaks (do not substitute frozen whipped topping – it’s too sweet and will ruin the dessert)

6 cups fresh berries
1 angel food cake, (loaf size) cut into 1 1/2 inch chunks

  1. Bring the water to a boil in the microwave; add the gelatin and sugar and stir until dissolved.
  2. Add the ice cubes, stir till melted, then put the mixture in the freezer while you are preparing the remaining ingredients to cool quickly. Or cool in the refrigerator; it takes longer.
  3. Mix the cooled gelatin mixture into the whipped cream; add the berries and cake squares.
  4. Transfer the mixture to a 13 x 9 inch glass dish or fancy serving dish.
  5. Refrigerate until set, about 30 minutes to one hour.
