Raspberry Swirl Angel Food Cake


This is a great “Canada Day” Cake. Besides, it doesn’t get any easier than this.

  • 1 Angel Food Cake Mix
  • 1 pint fresh raspberries
  • 1 quart premium vanilla ice cream (Chapman’s, for sure)

Mix angel food according to directions. Take three-quarters of the raspberries, wash and pat dry with paper towels then mash with a fork. Spoon about one-third of cake mix into a clean round ten inch tube pan.

Gently spoon one-half of the mashed raspberries over the batter and spoon another one-third of the batter into pan.  Spoon another one-half of the berries on top of the batter and spoon the final third of the batter into the pan.

Bake according to the directions for the cake. Cool inverted on the neck of a bottle or funnel.

When completely cool, unmold cake, slice and plate, served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and sprinkle a few fresh whole berries on top. This is very refreshing and super flavourful. Of course, you can also use blackberries or strawberries instead of raspberries. Place a small Canadian flag on top. Whooppee….

This is one of the easiest desserts to make but it will impress your guests just the same.

 Oh yeah! Happy Canada  Birthday. Someone say beer? oh, sorry, will you start the barbecue first. Ok?

 Now, where is the beer……just askin’.
