How to Make the Best Dessert You'll Have This Summer

Created January 10, 2017
We’re hard pressed to decide what we like best about this oh-so-summery treat: it’s pretty enough to impress everyone, it’s filled with the sweet flavors of the season and it couldn’t be easier to prepare.
Angel Food Pudding Cake with Berries

When we first tasted the Angel Food Pudding Cake with Berries in the Betty Crocker Kitchens, there was a unanimous reaction: This is summer, captured in a dessert. Fresh seasonal berries, fluffy Betty Crocker angel food cake mix and cool pudding made with Yoplait® Original strawberry yogurt all come together to make a sweet, light and colorful treat. It’s one that you’ll want to bring to every party and make for yourself at home. Here’s how to do it!

What you’ll need:

How to:

1.  Gather all of the ingredients. Move the oven rack to the middle position and heat the oven to 350°F.


2.  In a large bowl, beat cake mix and water with an electric mixer on low speed for 30 seconds, then on medium speed for 1 minute. Stir in sprinkles. Pour the batter into an ungreased 10-inch tube pan.

3.  Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until deep golden brown. Cool the cake completely upside down onto a glass bottle as directed on cake mix box for at least 1 hour. Then, run a knife around the edges and turn the cooled cake out onto a cooling rack.


4.  In a large bowl, beat yogurt, 1 1/2 cups of the whipped topping and the pudding with a whisk until well blended. Cut the cake in half. Tear one of the halves into bite-size pieces. Place the pieces in the bottom of a 13x9-inch pan. Sprinkle 1 cup of the chopped strawberries evenly over cake. Pour and spread half the yogurt filling on top. Tear other cake half into bite-size pieces. Repeat layers with remaining cake pieces, chopped strawberries and yogurt filling. Refrigerate 2 hours.


5.  When ready to serve, spread remaining 3 cups whipped topping on top of the cake. Decorate the top of the cake using blueberries to form a large star in center and sliced strawberries around edges.
