A C B cake!! Quick, Easy dessert!!!!


My hubby suggested we invite a friend to dinner tonight!!!!  What to make?  I had to quickly put together an easy meal and dessert.. I decided on my pork medallions with peach salsa.. So easy and it helped that I had a pork filet in the refrigerator.   I had some things in my refrigerator that I was willing to try for a dessert  but thought quickly that a store bought angel food cake would be the base to a dessert I would make..

   Something quick!   I needed to get peaches and  a tomato at the store so I picked up a large angel food cake..  I had instant pudding and ricotta, (just made the cannoli’s and I had some ricotta left) so I put it to work.  I cut the cake in half , made some chocolate instant pudding blended in milk, ricotta, vanilla and layered some  bananas. Topped it with whipping cream and chocolate chips. For a delicious light and easy quick dessert you may like to try it..  Our guest just left and he loved everything..  Mission accomplished.!

Happy Baking and Cooking from my kitchen to yours,




M.J.

1 large angel food cake (I cut in in half).    I’ll show a picture
1 5.9 oz. Chocolate instant pudding
1 ½ cups milk( I used 2 %)
1 tsp. Vanilla
½ cup traditional Ricotta
1  medium to large banana sliced in small slices(reserve a few pieces for top)
½ to ¾ cup mini chocolate morsels
Sifted Hershey’s cocoa (optional)
½ pint heavy cream
Confectioner sugar

Mix on low speed chocolate instant pudding, vanilla, milk and ricotta.. Mix thoroughly until ricotta is blended.   Set aside (Mixture will be a thick consistency but easy to spread).Note: (If it is too thick add a tablespoon more of milk).  Cut angel food cake in half.. Spread pudding mix on cake, lay banana slices.. Put top on cake.  Refrigerate for about 15 minutes..

Topping:
½ pint heavy cream ( 1 pint will be better. It will allow you more to spread)
¼ cup confectioner sugar
½ tsp. Vanilla

Beat until thickened .. Spread on cake.. Top with mini chocolate morsels and a few banana pieces.  Sprinkle sifted Hershey’s Cocoa on top (optional) Refrigerate until ready to serve.. Wonderful!!!

Great Combination!

Slice the cake in half so that there are two equal pieces which are your layers..
