Hi friends! Today I’m sharing with you what I consider to be the perfect summer dessert. Perfect because it’s delicious, easy, and can be tossed together together in just a few minutes. I also love that it’s light, and even though it’s easy to make, it’s pretty enough to serve to guests. And did I mention that it’s delicious?
Pound cake (homemade or store bought), cut into cubes
Whipped cream (homemade or store bought)
Berries (any combination of strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries. Peaches would be good too)
Layer pound cake and berries in individual bowls, then top with whipped cream.
And that’s it. Easy, right? It’s much too easy to really be considered a recipe, but it really is perfect for a fast summer dessert. The key is to keep a pound cake in the freezer. I always have fruit and heavy cream in the fridge, but if you don’t make your own whipped cream you could keep a container of store bought whipped cream in the freezer as well. And you could even use frozen fruit in a pinch. Having all the ingredients on hand is what makes throwing this dessert together last minute a cinch. I hope you enjoy it, and if you have your own fast and easy summer dessert I’d love for you to share it with us in the comments!
