Recommended Posts

This is a Yummy dessert for those on low-calorie, low-fat diets. I don't like much diet dessert recipes but this one is delicious!

Pumpkin Angel Food Cake with Creamy Ginger Filling


Pumpkin Power:

Pumpkin contains carotenoids, plant pigments that color them orange-yellow. Carotenoids are a form of vitamin A that help with vision.

Success Hint

A serrated or electric knife will help you cleanly cut the cake into 2 layers. Use these knives for slicing the cake as well.


Don't have crystallized ginger? Gently fold 1 teaspoon ground ginger into the whipped topping.



Angel food cake mixes with pumpkin for a new flavor twist. Layers of whipped cream make it a dreamy dessert. From eatbetteramerica.com.


Prep Time:10 min

Start to Finish:3 hr

makes:12 servings



1 box (1 lb) white angel food cake mix

1 tablespoon Gold Medal® all-purpose flour

1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice

3/4 cup (from 15-oz can) pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)

1 cup cold water


1 container (8 oz) frozen fat-free whipped topping, thawed

2 tablespoons finely chopped crystallized ginger

1. Move oven rack to lowest position; heat oven to 350°F. In extra-large glass or metal bowl, beat all cake ingredients with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds. Beat on medium speed 1 minute. Pour into ungreased 10-inch angel food (tube) cake pan.

2. Bake 37 to 47 minutes or until crust is dark golden brown and cracks are dry. Immediately turn pan upside down onto heatproof funnel or glass bottle. Let hang about 2 hours or until cake is completely cool. Loosen cake from side of pan with knife or long metal spatula. Turn cake upside down onto serving plate.

3. In medium bowl, gently mix whipped topping and ginger. Cut cake horizontally in half to make 2 even layers. Spread half of the filling on bottom layer; replace top of cake. Spread remaining filling on top of cake. Sprinkle with additional pumpkin pie spice if desired. Refrigerate any remaining cake.
