How to Make Pineapple Lemon Dessert

Step-by-Step

  1. In large bowl, mix gelatin and boiling water until gelatin is completely dissolved. In 2-cup measuring cup, mix reserved pineapple liquid and enough cold water to make 2 cups. Stir into gelatin mixture. Refrigerate until thickened but not set, about 45 minutes.


    Stir pineapple into thickened gelatin mixture. With rubber spatula, fold in 3 cups of the whipped topping.
  2. Tear angel food cake into 1-inch pieces, placing half of the pieces in ungreased 13x9-inch glass baking dish. Spoon half of gelatin mixture evenly over cake pieces. Repeat layers. Cover tightly with plastic wrap; refrigerate until set, about 1 hour.
  3. Cut into pieces and garnish with fresh strawberries, or leave them off. I only use them when on season.
