Angel Dream Cake

Even though I love to bake and make things from scratch there are many times where this bitch ain’t got time for that.  So I have a few go to recipes in my back pocket that are always a big hit when I don’t have a lot of time to fuss around in the kitchen.  They typically include what I call “cheats”.  Instant pudding or box cake mix or recipes that can be made in less than 10 minutes.

This is a cake that I have been making for those last minute events for over 6 years.  Every time I make it I get asked for the recipe!  It’s a perfect dessert for the summer. Every bite is light and fluffy and not filling.  Plus there is fruit so it makes this dessert healthy! I may be guilty of calling this breakfast on occasion. It’s that good!  All the flavor without the guilt!  That’s my kind of quick dessert!

Make this for your next bbq or family gathering and I can promise it will be a hit!
