I also have this receipe and make it in the summer. I had fresh New Jersey strawberries to the thawed strawberries. Everyone who tries this absolutely loves it. My Mom gave me the receipe, not sure where she got it.

I've also made it with a mixture of fresh and frozen blueberries. Was very good too.

Oh how we love the recipes from our childhood. Thank you for sharing your well loved recipe. I have many from my childhood that I now share with my cousins and with my own family that were passed down. Mostly baked treats. Oh how I miss those days at my Nanas side baking.....our grandchildren are small now but I hope to build those heartfelt times with them too.

This recipe brought back wonderful memories I have of a similar dessert my grandmother made when she was hostess at her house for the neighborhood club (this was a group of rural farming ladies who called the club "Mutual Benefit Club", much like those clubs all across the farm country in the early 20th century when folks got together to help each other). Her recipe was a little different; she used fruit cocktail and whipped cream (the cream readily available in the cool room), but she, too, used angel food cake. My sisters an I loved it when we on the farm when there was club meeting because we would get this wonderful dessert. I never knew what it was called, but when we were adults and made it from memory, we called it "Club". Thanks for posting your recipe, lisajane.

We put the top back on and then frosted with cook whip and whole strawberries. Good especially when strawberries are in season. I'm going to try your too.
GRAMMIE SHARON.... Please tell me more about your recipe... did you let the jello congeal a bit before you put the layers of jello and angel food cake bits back into the hollowed out cake? I was trying to envision how the really liquid jello would react with the cake.

LISA JANE: I've seen this or variations for your recipe over the years, thanks for sharing and it's encouraging me to try it. My husband has the sweetest tooth...thank goodness I don't, and he's tall and skinny and I'm fluffy....go figure?
