Blueberry Angel Food Cake Ingredients

- Package vanilla pudding

Purchasing an angel food cake from the store is one of the reasons this dessert is so quick and simple to put together. However, you can also bake your own angel food cake. If you are baking the cake yourself for this recipe, make sure to let it cool fully before you slice it and assemble the rest of your dessert. Otherwise, it can make the other ingredients too warm.
Don’t feel limited to just making this dessert with blueberry pie filling. Make it over and over again with a different pie filling each time. You could try strawberry, cherry, apple, or even lemon. You could also swap a lemon pudding in place of the vanilla pudding to create a lemon blueberry dessert.
Assembling the dessert in a 9”x9” pan makes for thinner layers and the easiest serving option. However, you can also put your dessert together in a pretty trifle dish. The trifle dish will certainly show off the fancy layers of this dessert and impress whoever gets to eat it.
How to Make Blueberry Angel Food Cake
FIRST STEP: Cut the cooled angel food cake into cubes about 1 inch in size.
SECOND STEP: Layer half of the cake pieces evenly in the bottom of a 9x9 cake pan (metal or glass).
THIRD STEP: Spread ⅔ of the blueberry pie filling evenly over the cake.
FOURTH STEP: Layer the last half of the cake cubes over the blueberry pie filling.
FIFTH STEP: In a medium bowl, stir together the pudding mix, milk, and sour cream until smooth (about 2 minutes). Spread evenly over the top of the cake.
SIXTH STEP: Spread the Cool Whip evenly over top of the pudding layer. Drop & spread the rest of the blueberry pie filling over the top.
SEVENTH STEP: Place in the fridge and let chill 4-5 hours before serving.
Use a serrated knife to cut the angel food cake for the best results. A serrated knife will cut the cake easier, and you won’t lose the airy, fluffy texture of the cake.
The dessert needs to chill for at least 4 to 5 hours, but overnight is even better so it can soak up all of the flavors.
Want more fruit with your dessert? You can easily double the fruit filling.
Swap out the angel food cake for pound cake, chocolate cake, or vanilla sponge cake for different flavors.
