Turn angel food cake into a refreshing, from-the-freezer dessert. Every bite is a taste of heaven!
quart (1 lb) fresh strawberries, quartered (3 cups)
can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated)
tablespoons orange-flavored liqueur or orange juice
teaspoon grated orange peel
loaf (8 oz) angel food cake
cups whipping cream
fresh strawberries, sliced
Line 2 (8x4-inch) loaf pans with plastic wrap, allowing 4 inches wrap to hang over short ends of pans. In food processor bowl with metal blade, place quartered strawberries. Cover; process with on-and-off pulses until almost pureed but with a few small pieces remaining. In large bowl, stir pureed strawberries, milk, liqueur and orange peel until well mixed.
Trim or brush any dark brown crust from angel food cake; cut cake into 3/4-inch cubes. In large bowl, beat whipping cream with electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form. Fold whipped cream and cake cubes into strawberry mixture. Spoon mixture evenly into pans. Fold plastic wrap over mixture. Freeze at least 5 hours until firm.
To serve, remove dessert from freezer 5 to10 minutes before serving. Unwrap and unmold onto serving platter; remove plastic wrap. Garnish tops of loaves with strawberry slices.
This is a great make-ahead dessert. Store it in the freezer up to one month. Use one pan for a small gathering, and keep the other for a future gathering. Or use both pans for a large gathering.
Semifreddo is Italian for "half cold." The term usually refers to a chilled or partially frozen dessert.
