To a 9x13 baking dish add the strawberry pie filling.
Zest the orange and sprinkle over the strawberries.
Juice the orange and pour into the strawberries.
With a spatula, give a quick stir to incorporate the juice and zest.
In a large bowl, add the angel food cake mix and water.
Stir well (it expands when you stir it so make sure the bowl is big enough).
Pour the cake mix over the top of the strawberries.
Bake in a 350-degree oven for about 40 minutes.
You don't want the top to be too brown but the cake does need to be set and cooked through.
-I don't love using fresh strawberries in this recipe because they don't have enough flavor when cooked, but you could add some chopped strawberries to the pie filling for more texture if you prefer. -You can serve this angel food dump cake, as is, or top with whipped cream and some fresh herbs. -If you don't want to add, or don't have an orange, you can leave it out. Or you can use lemon instead.
