Fat Free Strawberry Angel Cake

I had a terrible sweet craving today and considered pouring a bag of chocolate chips into a jar of peanut butter and grabbing a spoon and going to town, but I was saved by the box of angel food cake mix in the pantry. I'm not a huge fan of the cake but it does always go nicely with fruit toppings and its light and FAT FREE.

I don't own a tube pan so I used two round cake pans instead. I threw some frozen strawberries into the blender and rough chopped them and then folded them into the prepared cake batter. Then I made a topping with some more frozen strawberries, sugar and a little bit of pure vanilla extract. Just dump it all into a small pan and heat and stir until the strawberries begin to break down and the sugar melts into a syrup. Let cool-it will thicken as it cools.

Served the cooled sliced cake with some of the strawberry topping spooned over top and if you like a spoonful of fat free whipped topping. It was really good. The boys-ate half the cake just today.

YUM! You can make it with a can of blueberry pie filling and a box of angel food cake too, I think that is's called Blue Angel Cake. I'll check with Peg for the exact recipe.
