Strawberry Topped Angel Food Cake #WordlessWednesday

Our local strawberry season is winding up where I live in New York State.  I wouldn't be surprised if our heat wave (97F today, 36C) hastens that.  I can't complain - that privilege is reserved for those in our Pacific Northwest. They've been struggling with temperatures upwards of 117F (47C) recently.

So today, I wanted to feature something cool and refreshing.

Because I'm a Weight Watchers lifetime member, I try to stay away from fattening desserts.  This one is so simple and you can modify it however you want.

This is all you need:  slices of angel food cake (I made mine using a cake mix, right before the heat hit), sliced strawberries, and some whipped cream  (I use aerosol light whipped cream.). So simple, and no cooking needed.  Of course, you can use shortcake if you want. 

Take the slice of angel food cake. Heap sliced strawberries on it. (I don't sweeten them in any way).  Top with aerosol (or homemade) whipped cream.

If you want an easy Canada Day (tomorrow) dessert, I could easily see a drizzle of maple syrup on this.  If you want something for the United States' Independence Day (July 4) one could add a simple blueberry sauce, which we use for breakfast on the weekend: frozen blueberries, a little liquid, cooked briefly with some real maple syrup.  It's so good, and you could drizzle it over the cake and strawberries before you add the whipped cream.

  1. Well, my son is off to Hawaii with his wife on their first pandemic vacation. So, my red, white, and blue cheesecake will not be made. (My son's birthday is the 4th of July!). I'm going to use your strawberry cake idea to celebrate with my friends!

  2. Looks so delicious! I'm reading blogs before breakfast so I'm hungry and this one really made my stomach growl :)


  3. I ate that. I just wanted you to know that it was me that ate that delicious dessert.

    Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. ♥

  4. Ohmyword, this is awesome! And I think I could actually pull it off! Then it will truly be a happy Canada Day for my dessert-obsessed family! ;)
    Thank you so much for your good wishes! Right back at you for July 4th, my friend!

  5. The last week I did jam of strawberries!
    Your desert look delicious! Thank you for sharing it with us!
    Happy WW!

  6. It looks delicious. My strawberries have only just started but are doing well.


  8. Haven't had strawberry short cake this year.
    Coffee is on and stay safe

  9. Alana,

    I made a home-made strawberry shortcake for Independence Day with home-made whipped topping. I sweetened our strawberries. I'm looking forward to having some of that this weekend. Yours looks really yummy and I like the idea of adding blueberries for a patriotic look. I actually thought of doing that but I don't have any fresh blueberries. Somewhere in the freezer there's a bag of frozen blueberries but I'll save those to throw into some pancake batter. :)
