Quick Strawberry Banana Cake

    25 minutes

    This is a super easy cake to make since it is based on a premade angel food cake, but it's far from ordinary!

    Serves: 8 

    • 1 prepared angel food cake
    • 2 cups thickened cream
    • 1/2 teaspoon cornflour
    • 3 punnets strawberries
    • 1/2 cup white sugar
    • 1 cup sour cream
    • 1 dash red food colouring
    • 3 bananas, sliced

    Preparation:25min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Slice the angel food cake horizontally into 3 layers using a long serrated knife.
    2. Whip cream with cornflour in a large bowl until stiff but not grainy. In a separate bowl, crush about 1/2 cup of the strawberries. Stir in sugar and sour cream. Mix in red food colouring if desired. Gently fold the strawberry mixture into the whipped cream. Refrigerate until ready to use.
    3. Set aside 6 or 8 nice looking whole strawberries to use for garnish. Remove stems from remaining strawberries and slice.
    4. Place the bottom slice of angel food cake onto a serving plate. Top with a layer of sliced strawberries and bananas. Spread a layer of the whipped cream over the fruit. Top with the centre layer of the cake and repeat the fruit and cream layers. Place the top layer of the cake on top. Frost the top and sides of the cake with the remaining whipped cream mixture. Arrange whole strawberries on top for garnish. Refrigerate until serving.

    For a lower fat version of this recipe, substitute frozen whipped topping (like cool whip) for the whipped cream, but don’t use fat free (frozen topping or sour cream), it won’t set up. Make sure to store the cake in the refrigerator before serving.  -  05 Aug 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I liked the taste of this dessert, but the presentation was awful! The cake sort of melted and slid into a messy, un-attractive blob. I would suggest cutting the cake into serving slices, THEN top with the fruit, and cream.  -  24 Jun 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
