I know, you want a big ole’ spoonful of this sweet and yummy goodness. I can’t blame you. I have made it twice in a week. We are all pretty much hooked. And did I mention it is simple to make..semihomemade at its finest! And you can see it can be made two different ways!
Start with a store bought angel food cake. A big one or the individual cakes. I found the individual ones at Costco. No pressure and fairly affordable.
Or place the individual cakes on a serving platter.
Once the cake is ready, grab a package of instant vanilla pudding and two cups of cold milk. I might have used 1 1/2 cups of evaporated milk with an additional 1/2 cup of milk.
Mix together with pudding mix for two minutes.
Now, if you like cream cheese, add about 4 ounces of softened cream cheese and about 2/3 of a container of cool whip.
I also add a teaspoon of vanilla. I really like the vanilla flavor.
Pour over the angel food cake pieces.
Pop in the fridge for a few minutes to let the pudding mixture set up a little.
Then cover with the remaining cool whip and an additional half a container. This is for a 13 x 9 pan again. If using a square pan, put a little less cool whip in the pudding and use remaining on top. Then begin to add the berries of choice. About 2 cups total of berries.
This a great recipe to make with kids. Little hands are perfect for berry placement.
And it is more fun to eat fresh berries when there is cool whip involved!
This tastes as pretty as it looks. I made it for our bible study group and had not a single serving left. Lick your pan clean goodness.
