Easy dessert recipes that use angel food cake as an ingredient include the strawberry angel cake recipe from MyRecipes.com and the chocolate angel food cake and raspberry parfait recipe from FoodNetwork.com. Both recipes call for only eight ingredients each.
Make the strawberry angel cake by macerating 4 cups of strawberry slices with 1/4 cup of sugar in a bowl for one hour. Beat 8 ounces of softened cream cheese with 1/2 cup of sugar and 2 tablespoons of evaporated milk to form a smooth mixture. Slice a 10-inch round angel food cake into three layers.
Spread 1 tablespoon of orange liqueur on top of one cake slice before applying half of the cream cheese mixture and one-third of the strawberry mixture. Repeat this step. For the final layer, brush the cake slice with liqueur, and cover the cake with 8 ounces of whipped topping. Chill the cake for 30 minutes before topping it with the remaining strawberry mixture and 2 tablespoons of toasted almond slices.
To make the chocolate and raspberry parfait, dice 1 chocolate angel food cake and mix the cubes with 1/4 cup of raspberry brandy. Beat 1 cup of cold heavy cream with 3 tablespoons each of sugar and cocoa powder and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract to form stiff peaks. Put a few cake cubes into each of four parfait glasses. Add a few tablespoons each of chocolate cream and fresh raspberries along with a sprinkling of grated chocolate. Repeat the layers another three times.
