Sensational Strawberry Pudding: A Family Heirloom Recipe to Treasure

Growing up, every summer was synonymous with my grandmother’s strawberry pudding. It was more than just a dessert; it was a tradition, a dollop of her love served on our plates. As strawberries turned ripe and red in our backyard, we knew it was time for her to weave her magic. This recipe has been passed down through generations, each adding a personal touch, but always keeping the essence of her original masterpiece alive.

Ingredients:

  • 1 angel food cake, store-bought or homemade
  • 1 (16 ounce) container Cool Whip, thawed
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup sugar, divided
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 quart fresh strawberries, sliced
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 (3 ounce) package strawberry Jell-O gelatin dessert
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 cup water

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the Base:
    • Heat oven to 400 degrees.
    • Gently coat a 9×13 baking pan with spray.
    • Slice the angel food cake into three horizontal layers.
  2. Create the Creamy Layer:
    • In a mixing bowl, whisk the softened cream cheese with half a cup of sugar and the vanilla extract until smooth and creamy.
    • Gently fold in the Cool Whip until well combined.
  3. Assemble the Layers:
    • Lay the bottom layer of the angel food cake in a serving dish. Spread a generous portion of the cream cheese mixture over the cake layer.
    • Add a layer of sliced strawberries over the cream cheese mixture.
  4. Prepare the Strawberry Glaze:
    • In a saucepan, combine the remaining half cup of sugar, cornstarch, strawberry Jell-O, lemon juice, and water. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring constantly, until it thickens (about 5 to 7 minutes).
    • Pour half of the gelatin mixture over the strawberries.
  5. Build the Next Layers:
    • Add the second layer of angel food cake and repeat the layering process with the cream cheese mixture and strawberries, finishing with the remaining gelatin mixture.
    • Top with the final layer of cake and spread the remaining cream cheese mixture over the top. Garnish with remaining fresh strawberries.
