Craving a light, refreshing, and impressive dessert? Look no further than the Heaven on Earth Cake! This no-bake wonder combines layers of fluffy angel food cake, creamy cheesecake pudding, and sweet cherry pie filling, creating a symphony of textures and flavors in every bite.

Ingredients:

  • The Heavenly Base:

    • 1 Angel food cake, prepared - This airy and light cake forms the foundation of your dessert, creating a cloud-like texture. Purchase a pre-made cake for convenience, or bake your own for a homemade touch.
  • The Dreamy Cheesecake Center:

    • 1 package (3.4 oz) instant cheesecake pudding mix - This magic powder transforms into a quick and easy cheesecake filling, adding a creamy and luxurious layer to the cake.
    • 1 1/2 cups milk - Thins the pudding mix to the desired consistency for a smooth and luscious filling.
    • 1 cup sour cream (or plain Greek yogurt) - Adds a touch of tanginess and creaminess to the pudding, balancing the sweetness.
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract - Infuses the pudding with a warm and inviting vanilla flavor.
  • The Sweet and Tart Layers:

    • 1 (30-ounce) package cherry pie filling - The vibrant red cherries and sweet filling add a burst of flavor and color to the cake.
  • The Whipped Dream (Optional):

    • 1 container (8 ounces) cold whipped topping - Adds a layer of fluffy sweetness and lightness to the top of the cake.
  • The Finishing Touch (Optional):

    • 1 tablespoon roasted almond slices - A beautiful and elegant garnish that adds a delightful crunch and nutty flavor.

Instructions:

  1. Preparing the Angel Food Cake: You can either bake your own angel food cake according to package instructions or use a store-bought one for a quicker option. Regardless, cut the cake into 1-inch cubes and set them aside.

  2. Creating the Creamy Cheesecake Filling: In a large bowl, whisk together the instant cheesecake pudding mix, milk, sour cream (or plain Greek yogurt), and vanilla extract until smooth and creamy. This decadent mixture will be the heart of your cake.

  3. Assembling the Layers of Heaven: Choose a beautiful 9x13 inch baking dish. Start by creating the first layer with half of the prepared angel food cake cubes, spreading them evenly on the bottom of the dish.

  4. Adding a Touch of Sweet and Tart: Top the cake layer with half of the cherry pie filling, creating a vibrant and flavorful layer.

  5. More Layers, More Flavor! Repeat the layering process. Add another layer of the remaining cake cubes on top of the cherry pie filling.

  6. Pouring the Creamy Dream: Carefully pour the prepared cheesecake pudding mixture over the top of the second cake layer, ensuring it is evenly distributed.

  7. A Light and Fluffy Finish (Optional): If using whipped topping, spread it gently over the pudding layer, creating a light and fluffy topping.

  8. The Final Touch of Sweetness: Top the cake with the remaining cherry pie filling, creating a beautiful red finish.

  9. Chilling for Perfection: Cover the assembled cake and refrigerate it for at least 4 hours, or preferably overnight. This allows the flavors to meld beautifully and the cake to set perfectly.

  10. A Slice of Heaven: When ready to serve, take the cake out of the fridge and sprinkle the roasted almond slices on top for an added textural and visual delight. Slice and enjoy this heavenly dessert!
