This is my Mother-in-Law's recipe. She gave it to me when my husband requested it as it is one of his favorite desserts while growing up. I believe the prepared angel food cake is a shortcut and you can use any angel food cake, whether you baked it or bought it. I have used both! This is refreshing and somewhat like a strawberry shortcake gelatin dessert. The bananas give it extra flavor and texture. Use sugar free gelatin and whipped topping if you like! It's really delicious!
