Strawberry Shortcakes

I added some blue berries to mine.
Sometimes the simplest ingredients can make the best deserts. Fresh strawberries combined with light and fluffy angle food cake are just right for a delicious dessert.You can either make the angle food cake from scratch or pick up a pre-made one at the grocery store.

  • 1 medium navel orange 
  • 2 cups sliced strawberries 
  • 1 tablespoon light brown sugar
  • 10 oz sugar free angle food cake
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen fat-free whipped topping thawed
  1. Preheat broiler. 
  2. Grate rind from orange, reserving 1 teaspoon rind; set aside. Squeeze 1/4 cup juice from orange; set aside. 
  3. Combine strawberries, orange rind, orange juice, and brown sugar; let stand 5 minutes. 
  4. Cut angle food cake into 16 slices; coat both sides of each slice with cooking spray. Place slices on a baking sheet. Broil 2 minutes on each side, or until golden. 
  5. Place 1 slice of angle food cake onto a plate. Layer 3 tablespoons strawberry mixture and 2 tablespoons whipped topping, top with a second piece of angle food cake. Top with 1 additional tablespoon of strawberry mixture and whipped topping. Drizzle with juice form strawberry mixture.
