This Strawberry Angel Fluff is our go-to dessert year round!

Strawberry Angel Fluff I Mommy Hates Cooking

One of my most popular recipes on my blog is for Angel Fluff, which was actually a recipe my mom used to make frequently when we were kids.  I originally posted this one back in 2014; however, I thought I would share it again this year since it is one of the most popular recipes on my website.  It’s also one of the most popular in our home too!

Recently, I have been craving some Angel Fluff only this time; I’m gluten free so I cannot eat the typical angel food cake that is store bought.  I finally found a recipe that I love for homemade gluten free angel food cake.  As soon as I tasted the cake, it flooded me with lots of memories and ideas of future recipes with this angel food cake as the base.

Since Valentine’s Day is coming up, I decided to mix up my angel fluff a bit and use Strawberry Pie Filling instead of Cherry although both are red and either would work, I just love strawberries!

I also adapted it a bit to make it a double layer of delicious goodness instead of just one this time.

Strawberry Angel Fluff

Yield: 12+


Angel Food Cake: (You will need to make 2 of these.)

  • 1 ¼ Cups All Purpose Flour or Gluten Free All Purpose Flour
  • 1 ¾ Cups White Sugar
  • ¼ Tsp Salt
  • 1 ½ Cups Egg Whites (About a dozen eggs)
  • 1 Tsp Cream of Tartar
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla Extract


  • 2 Cups Powdered Sugar
  • 2 8oz Packages of Low Fat Cream Cheese, Softened
  • 2 Containers of Fat Free Cool Whip
  • 2 21oz Cans of Strawberry Pie Filling
  • Pecans (Optional)


1. Note that you need to make 2 of the Angel Food Cakes.

2. Begin by sifting the flour, sugar, and salt in a large stand mixer.

3. Add in the egg whites, cream of tartar, and vanilla extract, mixing well.

4. Pour the batter into a greased Bundt pan.

5. Place the cake in a cold oven, then set it to 325* and bake for 1 hour or until golden brown.  Repeat these steps for the second angel food cake.

6. Let cool and set aside.

7. Place the powdered sugar and cream cheese in a mixing bowl.

8.  Mix it well until it is a smooth consistency, and then add in the cool whip (add pecans if you use them).

9. Continue mixing until well combined.

10. Tear the cakes into small pieces and place in a large mixing bowl then coat it with the cream cheese mixture, be sure that all of the cake is well coated.

11. In a large trifle dish, place half the mixture on the bottom, then top it with a can of the strawberry pie filling.

12. Place the remaining mixture on top of the filling and then complete it with the additional can of strawberry pie filling.

13. Chill for 2 hours, then serve or serve immediately.

Note:  If you prefer, you can simply buy 2 Angel Food Cakes, already made at the store instead of making that from scratch, then follow the rest of the instructions as mentioned above.

I quickly had family over at my house going home with plates of Strawberry Angel Fluff, and my husband was calling warning me that he better have some fluff left when he gets home or serious fluff is going to happen!  Sure thing, honey!

This recipe is so easy and perfect to impress for Valentine’s Day or any day!

Remember you can do any variation of this that you prefer with the filling of your choice too.  I’ve made this with cherry, srawberry, peach, and blueberry.  They are all equally delicious and perfect for any occasion.

Be sure to check out these great products to serve this in!

    Thank you for linking this to What’d You Do This Weekend. Love your pictures. I’m working on better shots. I even bought a new camera, but I think lighting is the key. Have a wonderful weekend and hope to see you next week.

    That looks and sounds so good! I love that it’s completely home made, gluten free, and totally delicious. I mean, I haven’t made it yet, but I assume it’s delicious. It certainly looks that way!


  7. Jennposted January 30, 2017 at 8:21 pm

    Oh my goodness! These looks and sounds amazing, and delicious. I am not much of a cook but have been trying new and easy desserts lately. I think I could handle this one, and man does it sound good. I bet my family would love it.


  8. Horse namesposted January 30, 2017 at 11:38 pm

    This looks amazing.


  9. Marysaposted January 31, 2017 at 7:02 am

    This is such a good idea! We have enjoyed fruit with whipped cream, but this is a true dessert. I love easy it is and the combination of ingredients. It looks like it is a nice light treat too. And you could mix it up by using other fruits. Definitely need to save this recipe for later!


  10. Emeraldposted January 31, 2017 at 8:11 am

    I haven’t ever had Strawberry Angel Fluff before but this recipe looks amazing. I’m a big fan of cake and strawberries, so I know this would taste delicious. Thanks for sharing!


  11. Stephanie Jeannotposted January 31, 2017 at 9:58 am

    Oh my goodness! That looks really good. I can tell that it tastes really good too. I have to try this. Would make an excellent dessert option for our big, family dinners when we have them. I especially love the strawberry topping. Reminds me of cheesecake when I look at it.


  12. E Hposted January 31, 2017 at 2:46 pm

    I love this recipe – it seems quite simple to make, and we always have all of the ingredients that you are using on hand in our house! I think this will become one of my favorite recipes – it looks gorgeous, and I bet it will also work marvelously with fresh berries – we love to eat those this year in our house! Thank you for sharing the delightful recipe!


  13. Parpar de Realposted February 1, 2017 at 4:26 am

    Ohh This recipe makes me drooling! I want this right now, I would asking my wife to make this, so glad that you share this recipe with us


  14. Valerieposted February 1, 2017 at 8:37 am

    You had me at strawberries . My favorite fruit ever. I make something very similar to this and have for years. I always get it at my birthday. The only thing I’ve never done is make my own Angel food Cake. I’m so trying yours this year. Yummy.


  15. Sageposted February 1, 2017 at 9:22 am

    OMG! This looks like it’s to die for! I wish I could find Cool Whip or an equivalent in Denmark but even their version of canned whipped cream sucks because it doesn’t have any sugar. Blech!


  16. Tiffanyposted February 2, 2017 at 7:41 am

    Oh My!! My Kiddies would love this! Strawberries are one of their favorite fruits and this looks like something this none baking Momma could actually pull off…


  17. Carolynn Scoffieldposted April 4, 2017 at 1:06 pm

    I have a question? Can the Angel Food Cake recipe be doubled in order to have 2 cakes, or must you mix each recipe individually? I want to make this soon, so I would love to know the answer to this question! TYVM
