Strawberries and Cream Angel Food Cake - a sweet and delicious dessert filled with a creamy layer and topped with strawberries. It's so simple and so delicious!

Mother’s Day is right around the corner! Are you ready?

I always stress out a little bit because I never know what to get my mom. Fortunately, we have similar style and taste and I usually end up buying her something I’d want for my own home knowing she will love it too. 😉

MY OTHER RECIPES

Like many of you, we not only shower our moms with love and thoughtful gifts, but we also make sure mom gets amazing food that day. With that in mind, I wanted to share with you two delicious recipes inspired by a recent trip to HEB (my go-to grocery store here in Texas), to help you celebrate your own MOMentous and amazing mothers on Mother’s Day. I know many of you do breakfast in bed, so the first recipe is one that I think your mom will LOVE on the special day. They’re Breakfast Biscuit Cups and they are simple to make and so tasty!

Breakfast Biscuit Cups - filled with sausage, eggs, potatoes, cheese and more! So simple you'll want to make these for breakfast all the time!

Here is what you’ll need to make them:

BREAKFAST BISCUIT CUPS:

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/2 bag of Jimmy Dean Sausage Crumbles
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup milk 
  • 1/2 cup frozen cubed hash brown potatoes, thawed
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 TB water
  • 1 can (16.3 ounces) large refrigerated flaky biscuits
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup shredded Colby-Monterey Jack cheese
  • Muffin Tin

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Add sausage to a skillet with oil. Cook until warmed up and add flour, pepper and salt. Add 1/2 cup milk and bring to a boil. Stir until thickened and set aside.
  3. In another skillet cook potatoes and butter until tender.
  4. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, garlic salt and milk. Add to potatoes and cook until eggs are almost done.
  5. Press biscuits into greased muffin tin. If too thick, peel off a layer of the biscuit and fit in. Push onto bottom and up sides. Spread melted butter onto biscuits.
  6. Spoon egg mixture, sausage and cheese into cups.
  7. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until golden. Let cool for a few minutes and enjoy warm.

NOTE: These are great frozen too. Just freeze once cooled and heat in microwave for 1 minute.

These were so simple to make and can be easily changed up. I think next time we’ll try bacon instead of sausage!!

In case you do breakfast with your own families, I also have another recipe to share that is perfect in case you are meeting up with your moms later in the day. It’s tradition in our family for my dad and all the kids to make Sunday dinner on Mother’s Day. We all divvy up the assignments and I’m usually assigned dessert. I wanted to think of something I knew my mom would love so I came up with this Strawberries and Cream Angel Food Cake. You guys – it is AMAZING!!! It was simple to make and looked gorgeous!

Here is what you’ll need to make it:

STRAWBERRIES & CREAM ANGEL FOOD CAKE

INGREDIENTS:

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Make Angel Food Cake as directed on box. Let cool and cut in half. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix cream cheese and butter until smooth. Mix in powdered sugar and fold in whipped topping. Set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl mix pudding, milk and vanilla. Fold this mixture in with the cream cheese mixture.
  4. Spread half the mixture onto the first layer of Angel food cake. Add the top of the cake and add the rest of the mixture.
  5. Refrigerate for at least one hour.
  6. Right before serving, place chopped strawberries and whole strawberries on top. ENJOY!

    Lil' Luna

    I’m not sure what she needs to avoid, but maybe you can show her the ingredients and you can always substitute if you need to:) Let me know if she can or if you make any changes.

Debbie B

My Mom is famous for her amazing homemade angel food cake, overtime I see one it reminds me of her. This one looks amazing! One of my favorite Mother’s Day memories was just a couple years ago when all NINE of us children were able to be with our Mom on Mother’s Day, which never happens anymore now that we are grown. We filled a cute box with her favorite things and favorite things of ours that reminded us of her.

    Lil' Luna

    I bet your mom loved it!! It does get hard when everyone is busy with their own lives. That sounds so sweet! Thanks for sharing!

Ashley Craft

I just love how on Mother’s Day, you get recognition for the work you do 365 days a year. It’s like your family finally notices!

Laura Evans

We absolutely love the H-E-B angel food cake mix… It is actually the best one we have ever used. One of my favorite Mother’s Day memories was waking up to breakfast in bed made my my sweet little ones… Peanut butter toast and juice! They did it all by themselves. 😍 #HEB

My favorite mother’s day memory is the first mother’s day I became a mom. It changed my perspective on being a great role model and the true meaning of love.

It’s so hard to choose my favorite Mother’s Day memory because they are all great. However, one year my girls gave me tickets to see Norah Jones because she is one of my favorite singers. They wanted to give me something that was just for me. It was incredible!!

    Lil' Luna

    Wow!! That is a great gift!! You could tell that they put thought into it and wanted to give you something that you would really enjoy! Thanks for sharing:)

Lisa Langston

My wonderful mom passed away a year and a half ago. I would give anything just to have one more Mothers Day with her. She was truly the best mom a daughter could have. She is constantly on my mind. Everyone please don’t take your moms for granted. Treat her like everyday is Mothers Day.

    Lil' Luna

    I am so sorry to hear that, Lisa!! That is great advice! So grateful that we can hold memories close to our hearts!!

rig

I am not a mom, but every Mother’s Day with my mom is special.

Hi, one year my mom & I made lots of cinnamon rolls & pies for a church function, but even though it was kind of a working mothers day, we were together the whole day doing what we loved most, chatting & baking, thanks for the chance to win !

Laura

Hi, I’m making the cake for my moms birthday tomorrow, can I put it together today and refrigerate over night ? And out the strawberries on tomorrow?

Colleen

Do you make the pudding beforehand or just add the pudding mix and mix it with the milk and vanilla?

    Lil' Luna

    You do not make it ahead. You’ll mix the powder with the milk & vanilla 🙂 Hope that helps!
