Icebox Lemon Angel Food Cake

This Icebox Lemon Angel Food Cake is another “almost homemade” recipe.  Since I was too lazy to make everything from scratch, I decided to do a “semi-homemade” lemon cake which would satisfy my craving for light, sweet and “lemony.”

ICEBOX LEMON ANGEL FOOD CAKE

Ingredients:

  • One box of angel food cake mix
  • 4 1/2 ounces of lemon jello powder (One 3 ounce box and 1/2 of another 3 ounce box (regular or sugar free)
  • 24 ounces of light cool whip (One 16 ounce container of light cool whip, and one 8 ounce container of light cool whip)
  • Mix the angel food cake according to package directions and bake in two 9 inch round pans.

  • Now these cakes are tricky to get out of the pan, so follow the directions on the box for cooling.
  • Mine weren’t perfect, but the topping covers a multitude of imperfections.
  • When the cake is cool, mix together the thawed cool whip and jello (the same mixture as my frozen lemon dessert).

    • Put a small layer of topping on the cake dish, and then lay your first layer on top of it.
    • Then put a layer of the topping on top of that.  Lay the second layer on, and then cover the whole cake with the rest of the topping mixture.
    • Chill well.  I even like to put mine in the freezer because it sets the topping, and cuts smoothly and nicely, and I like the texture.
    • Store in refrigerator or freezer.  I like the freezer, till I’m ready to serve.  It thaws quickly.

  16. To alleviate sticking mix equal parts crisco, veggie oil and flour. Mix with beaters and store as a “pan release”
    mix to be brushed on cake or bundt pans. ABSOLUTELY no sticking.

  17. On the Betty Crocker angel food it says to add water do I add the water plus the soda water I just the soda water??

    1. I’m not sure what you mean, but if you’re using a store bought angel food cake mix, make it just like the directions on the box say.
