A little birthday celebration made special by a simple yet impressive dessert – Grilled Angel Food Cake with Key Lime Pudding n’ Raspberries
Time to celebrate…C&C turns 3 today. I love celebrations that call for dessert, especially incredible desserts like this one. We’ve come a long way since our first post and we’re looking forward to what the next year brings. I wish I could have you all over for dessert, I would totally make this over and over again to thank you for reading (and leaving sweet comments!) on this lil’ blog.
Picture with me now…sweet delicate angel food cake grilled until golden brown – oh yes, I did. And it’s topped with creamy, tangy key lime pudding (that’s right, I may never eat another flavor of pudding again). Raspberries are the perfect partner for this already fantastic combo and the whipped cream is just icing on the cake.
Did I mention how simple this is? If you can use a spoon and butter bread, you’ve got this. If you want to take this to a gathering, make it into a trifle and be prepared to make new friends.
- 1 small pkg. VANILLA INSTANT PUDDING
- 1/2 cup BOTTLED KEY LIME JUICE
- 1/2 cup COLD WATER
- 1 14 oz. can SWEETENED CONDENSED MILK
- 2 cups HEAVY CREAM (or 4 cups of Cool Whip)
- 1/3 cup POWDERED SUGAR (if using heavy cream)
- Store-bought ANGEL FOOD CAKE, sliced
- Room temperature BUTTER
- SHREDDED COCONUT, toasted
- Fresh RASPBERRIES
- In a bowl, combine pudding mix, lime juice, water and sweetened condensed milk. Chill while whipping cream.
- Whip 1 cup of cream until soft peaks form. Fold this (or 2 cups of Cool Whip) into pudding mixture. Return to fridge while grilling cake.
- Preheat a skillet over medium heat, Spread both sides of each piece of cake with butter. Grilled in pan until golden on both sides.
- Whip remaining cream with powdered sugar.
- Place on cake on plate, sprinkle with toasted coconut, top with pudding mixture, layer on raspberries and whipped cream. Garnish with extra coconut.
