Angel Lush Recipe

With all of these Kraft coupons, I have stocked up on lots. Especially Cool Whip. I wanted to share a recipe I absolutely love for you to use up some of the Cool Whip.

Angel Lush Cake
Adapted from Kraft Foods Recipe


2 packages of Angel Food Cake
Assortment of Fruit

1 can of crushed pineapple
1 box of vanilla pudding
1 tub of Cool Whip

I purchase the pre-packaged rectangle Angel Food Cake from Kroger. I like this shape because you can cut slices to layer in the pan easier. I'm all about easier!!! Slice angel food cake into ¼-inch slices..

For the Filling:

  1. Drain the can of crushed pineapple.
  2. Dump the crushed pineapple into a bowl.
  3. Mix in the box of vanilla pudding. You can use any flavor of pudding. Depending on your fruit, you could match the flavors.
  4. Fold in cool whip.

Layer the Cake

  1. Place one layer of angel food cake slices on bottom of pan.
  2. Dollop filling to cover layer.
  3. Place layer of fruit.
  4. Repeat another layer of each.

The last time I made this, I used mandarin orange slices and raspberries. This flavor combination was yummy! I've also used strawberries and blueberries. You could substitute Fat-Free or Low-Fat Cool Whip and Pudding to make this lower in calories. I don't find it affects the taste at all since the fruit has a nice kick of sweetness!

I have also made this with the round angel food cake, cut in thirds layering the filling in between each layer. When I have done this, the filling just oozes out the side and doesn't look too hot. You could also make individual shortcakes with a dollop of filling and fruit on each.


Thanks to Tricia @ for these pics. She and her family came over for dinner a while ago and I made this dessert, which may be part of the reason she is expecting a baby. I can't guarantee those same results for you though…well, unless I made it :)

    Oh, this look so yummy and refreshing! I have been looking for a fresh dessert that had lots of colors. Thanks for posting this. I will be printing the recipe and making it for our next church picnic!

    I’ve made this before, and it is delicious. I was short on time and didn’t feel like meticulously slicing the cake into layers, so I just chopped it into chunks and made a trifle.

    Delicious and easy, and that’s what I’m all about.

    You ought to try the meatball skewers recipe in the latest food and family magazine, too. It’s good and quick. I added pineapples to mine.

    Yum. I have everything for that in my house right now (have 4 angle food cakes in freezer from a managers special a couple weeks ago 50 cents each). I think my hubby and kids my have a Tuesday night treat. Thanks for sharing.

    I’ve used this topping on my WW friendly pineapple angel food cake, and it’s delish! To make the cake, just add a can of crushed pineapple to an angel food cake mix…add nothing else, not water like the box says. Bake in 9×13 pan in a 350 oven for about 30 minutes! Great plain too, but even better with the pineapple/cool whip/pudding topping!

    Hi Ladies!

    Please be sure to include the SIZE/AMOUNT that is needed for each ingredient in your recipes. Lots of cooks out there will have a hard time trying to figure out how to make your yummy recipes!
