My mother always made this recipe for the Fourth of July. It followed a wonderful meal of grilled hamburgers or steak and her fabulous potato salad
. But it's a great dessert any time of the year.
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
Yield: 6 servings
- 1 loaf frozen pound cake, thawed
- 3 cups strawberries, hulled and sliced
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 3 Tbsp. powdered sugar
- 1 tsp. vanilla
Using a potato masher, mash half of the strawberries. Stir in the sliced strawberries and chill. Beat cream with powdered sugar and vanilla. Slice pound cake, place each piece on serving plate, top with strawberry mixture and a dollop of cream. Serve immediately.
You can make your own pound cake instead of using the frozen version if you'd like, but the frozen one (I love Sara Lee) is so good, why bother?
