2: Spring strawberry angel food cakeStrawberry heaven angel food cake dessert recipe recipe

Ingredients

1 pint strawberries, more or less
3 cups heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup sugar
1 10-inch angel food cake (made with tube pan)
1 cup lemon curd (recipe below)

Directions

Wash and hull strawberries. Chop them, but not too small.

Beat whipping cream in a bowl until fluffy. Add sugar and continue beating until stiff peaks form. Put 2 to 3 cups of whipped cream in a smaller bowl and add strawberries. Fold them in, then set aside.

Use a serrated knife to slice the cake horizontally in three layers of equal thickness. Set the bottom layer on a decorative serving plate, and spread it with half of the lemon curd. Top with a layer of strawberry cream.

Top the berries with the middle layer of cake. Repeat lemon curd and strawberry layers. Top with remaining cake layer, pressing gently. Use the remaining sweetened whipped cream to ice the cake.

Note: The cake slices easier if it is allowed to stand several hours. Use a serrated knife and a sawing motion to slice the cake, and don’t be surprised if you need to wipe the knife frequently as you slice.

Serves 10

Easy variation: Use only 1 cup of heavy whipping cream for the strawberry layer, and serve the cake without icing. Another easy variation: Leave out the lemon curd, though it is delicious.

Lemon curd recipe

Ingredients

4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup freshly-squeezed lemon juice
4 egg yolks
1 tablespoon grated lemon peel

Directions

In a heavy non-aluminum saucepan (or the top of a non-aluminum double boiler), combine butter, sugar, lemon juice and egg yolks. Cook over lowest heat (or simmering water), stirring constantly, until mixture thickens enough to heavily coat the back of a spoon. Do not let the mixture boil or it will curdle. Pour the lemon curd into a small bowl and stir in the lemon peel. Refrigerate until ready to use. Makes 1 cup.
