  • ½½ 8-ounce angel food cake, cut into 1-inch cubes (about 4 cups)
  • 4 egg yolks, beaten
  • 1¼ cups fat-free half-and-half
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 4 cups fresh strawberries, cut up
  • Ground cinnamon (optional)


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 300°F. Line a shallow baking pan with parchment paper. For croutons, place angel cake cubes in a single layer in prepared shallow baking pan. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown, stirring occasionally. Remove croutons from oven. Cool completely.
  2. For custard, in a heavy medium saucepan, stir together egg yolks, half-and-half, and sugar. Cook and stir over medium heat just until mixture comes to a boil.
  3. Remove pan from heat. To quickly cool mixture, place saucepan in a large bowl of ice water; stir constantly for 1 to 2 minutes or until cooled. Stir in vanilla. Pour mixture into a bowl. Cover surface with plastic wrap to prevent a skin from forming. Chill for 2 to 24 hours. Do not stir.
  4. To serve, divide croutons in dessert dishes; top with strawberries and custard. If desired, sprinkle with cinnamon.
