1 bag (1 pound) frozen mixed berries, thawed
2 – 3 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp grated lemon zest
1 tsp minced fresh ginger
1 store bought angel food cake
In a medium saucepan, combine berries, sugar, zest and ginger. Cook; stirring occasionally, over medium heat, until berries have softened and released their juices, 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool slightly.
Cut angel food cake into 8 wedges. Spoon compote over or alongside cake wedges and serve.
Garnish with whipped cream if desired.
