Strawberry Lemon Fluff Angel Food Cake ~ Light, Fluffy Angel Food Cake Pilled with Light & Creamy Lemon Filling and Fresh Strawberries!
It’s Strawberry Season! I say that with great joy. I look forward to the blast of freshness from a strawberry every spring. Of course they are bought at the grocery store and not fresh out of a garden. If that was the case strawberry season would be about a week long event in Minnesota in the middle of the summer. Thankfully it’s 2015 and we have fresh product shipped right to our grocery store waiting for me to consume it. It’s pretty amazing if I do say so myself. Growing up we always had angel food cake with fresh strawberries. It was a bit of staple at our house and there was always a fresh dollop of whipped cream on top, well most of the time it was actually Cool Whip! I remember mom standing at the sink washing and freezing strawberries so we could enjoy this treat all winter long. Isn’t she the best? There’s nothing like this treat in the middle of winter to put a little smile on your face! Trust me, those strawberries in the middle of winter are not as amazing as they are right now. They are more like white strawberries spray painted red with little to no flavor. No thanks, I’ll pass.
I’ve also been on a little bit of a lemon kick lately. Lemon makes me happy in the spring too. I’m not sure why but I always feel like I need to use lemon in the spring and no other time. It’s kind of a neglected flavor in my little world. I really should remedy that! I get so distracted by “seasonal” flavors. I have a hard time breaking out lemon when it’s “pumpkin season” in my mind. Anyone else like that? Lucky for me right now we are in the midst of strawberry and lemon season so I’m right on time with this delicious treat! It would be so perfect for a treat for Mother’s Day! I know if my family treated me to this Strawberry Lemon Fluff Angel Food Cake I’d be smiling from ear to ear!
For all of your guys out there this is totally easy to make. I’m pretty sure my hubs could even make it. Scared of actually making an angel food cake? No worries, the grocery store usually carries pre-made angel food cakes and I won’t tell anyone if you use one of those. Simply grab one of those or make your own, then cut it in half, stuff it with this amazing whipped filling full of lemon flavor then topped with strawberries. Plus, Mom’s going to love it because I lightened it up for her using zero-calorie Truvia® Natural Sweetener. My favorite secret ingredient because it helps me reduce the calories and sugar in this delicious treat while not sacrificing the flavor. Truvia® sweetener is natural, great-tasting sweetness that was born from the leaves of the stevia plant. This dessert is light, fluffy and delicious!
