QUICK GIRLIE DESERT: BERRY CREAM POUND CAKE




Tonight I'm kicking up my feet after a long day at work.  And I thought to myself: how about a quick and easy treat that's sweet, creamy and cake-y?  So I rushed to the store a short drive away and here is what's been whipped up...and eaten fast:

A "berry" easy, "berry" quick girlie desert: BERRY CREAM POUND CAKE

And here is how to make your own:

1) Get a loaf of ready-made pound cake.  I used Sara Lee.



2) Slice pound cake into thin pieces.
To make 2 servings, I sliced up 4 pieces.



3) Pour 1 cup of heavy cream and 1/2 table spoon of sugar into a mixing bowl.
Start whipping.  If you use an electric beater, it will take about 3 - 5 minutes.


 


Don't forget to start slow.

 


Starting to see some bubbles.

 


Getting thicker!  Turn up the speed to med or high now!

 


Yummy!  Rich, thick, whipped goodness!

** NOTE: You can also purchase whipped cream.  But heavy cream is soooooooooo much better!

4) Get fresh berries.  I used black berries here.

  



5) Pile 2 (or more) pieces of pound cake with whipped cream in between and on top.
Pile on the berries.

 



DONE!!!! Easy-to-make, no bake, Friday night delight!!!!
