Blueberry Cake

This is a very quick, very easy, really good dessert.

Blueberry Cake:

You need:

1 8oz tub of Cool Whip
1 8oz pkg of cream cheese
1 cup of sugar (not powdered)
1 angel food cake
1 can of blueberry pie filling

Whip together Cool Whip, cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffy. Cut angel food cake in half, so you have two layers. Spread half the mixture on the bottom layer, replace top layer and spread the rest of the mixture. Pour blueberry pie filling over it. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

You could also use cherry pie filling, if you wish.

Please post a recipe of your favorite dessert.

Zulmara, how long do you bake it? It sounds good.

Um, do you put coconut in it, too?

Cindi, it is delicious and very rich. I have noticed that bakeries are making angel food cakes smaller than the did years ago. You have lots of 'frosting' for it.
