Look what I'm posting in the middle of October.....Angel Lush??
Isn't this a summertime refreshing treat?
But, when someone has a craving, like me, it is best to fulfill it.
And that is exactly what I did.
I found these little angels (the size of a brick) at the Meijer store, and yes, on the same day bakery rack.
These little angel food cakes are what triggered my craving. I think I need to stay away from that bakery rack. What do you think?
I purchased four of these sweet little cakes, left one on my counter, and stuck the rest in the freezer for later use, because I'm thrifty like that, and angel food cake freezes well.
The ingredients in this recipe can be adjusted for the lighter, less fat, less calories type of person.
But I am a full figur.........oops, I mean full flavored type of person.
When you take all the calories and fat away from a recipe, what do you have?
Yup, that's right, NO FLAVOR. Although I have tried some pretty amazing recipes from Weight Watchers.
I am not really big on OVER-SWEET treats.
Take for instance the pumpkin whoopie pie. That was way too much sweet.
I had a craving for something with a little sweet, a lot of refreshment, and a good combination.
The ANGEL LUSH hit the nail on the head. My craving has been satisfied once again.
When you use a full sized angel food cake for this recipe, there will be three slices made.
I did have lush left-over too, but I have ideas for that, believe me....
I still have a whole box of Ritz brown sugar/cinnamon crackers.
I couldn't wait to dive into that....
1 (20 oz) can crushed pineapple, in juice, undrained
1 pkg (4 serving size) French vanilla instant pudding
1 c. thawed whipped topping
1 round angel food cake
Fresh fruit of your choice on top
Mix pineapple with its juice and the dry pudding mix in medium bowl. Gently stir in whipped topping.
Cut cake horizontally into three layers. Place bottom cake layer, cut-side up on serving platter; top with 1 1/3 c. of the pudding mixture. Cover with middle cake layer and an additional 1 c. of the pudding mixture. Top with remaining cake layer, spread top of cake with the remaining pudding mixture.
Refrigerate at least 1 hour. Top with fruit of your choice just before serving.
Good Luck~Happy Eating~Enjoy
