This delightful dessert features two creamy layers topped with cherries.


  • 1 prepared round angel food cake (10- or 12-oz.), frozen (for easy slicing)

  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 package (4-serving size) instant vanilla-flavor pudding mix
  • 2 cups (1 pint) whipping cream, whipped
  • 2 cans (21 oz. each) cherry OR peach pie filling, divided


  1. Cut cake into 1/4-inch slices; arrange half the slices on the bottom of a 13-by-9-inch baking dish.
  2. In a large bowl, combine sweetened condensed milk, water and almond extract; mix well. Add pudding mix; beat well. Chill for 5 minutes. Fold in whipped cream.
  3. Spread half the cream mixture over cake slices; top evenly with one can pie filling. Top with remaining cake slices, then remaining cream mixture, then other can of pie filling.
