Orange Angel Cake

A very lite and very pretty dessert. Just 140 calories per serving is sweet!

Orange Angel Cake
Pampered Chef Delightful Desserts cookbook, page 10-11

PRINT RECIPE
Servings 15

1 package angel food cake mix
1 package (0.3-oz) sugar free orange jello (or flavor of choice)
3/4 cup boiling water
1/2 cup cold water
2 cups Cool whip Lite, thawed
1 orange( optional)
1/2 pint raspberries (optional)

Preheat oven to 350. Prepare cake mix according to directions. Pour batter into ungreased rectangular baker, spreading evenly.

Bake on center rack in oven 35 to 40 mins or until top is golden brown and cracks feel dry and not sticky.
Carefully turn baker upside down onto cooling rack, cool 45 mins. Do not remove cake from baker.

Using fork or metal skewer, poke holes in cake about 1 1/2" deep and 1/2" apart.

Place gelatin in small bowl. Pour boiling water into gelatin, stir about 2 mins or until completely dissolved. Stir in cold water. Slowly pour gelatin evenly over cake. Refrigerate 3 hours.

Frost cake with cool whip using large spreader. Cut into squares. Garnish with orange slice, zest, raspberries and mint, if desired.

Low fat: 140 calories per slice

NOTE:  When I poured the Jell-O onto the top of the cake, it pooled in the center.  I used a meat injector to inject the Jell-O and it worked like a charm.

Lorraine I have already commented here but wanted to thankyou for your comment on my Party Potato chips. You asked about the caramel. I've never tried it with just the caramel sauce. I would wonder if it wouldn't stay kinda sticky. Thats the only problem I can see. These are REALLY good though. You, your husband and your whole family I know would aboslutely love 'em.

Val said...

Looks so light and wonderful.

kitty said...

I love the look of this cake and it's low-cal, too. I've never made this type with the angel food, but that would keep the fat and calories down. Hooray!!
