I love to cook but hate things that take too long, especially desserts. So I came up with this great dessert idea. Fresh strawberries and a buttery pound cake really make this pop.

Easy when you just need something easy to do and want a dessert. The strawberries make the whole dessert when you use fresh. I cut up the pound cake into 1" pieces and used canned whip cream because we like the real whipped cream taste over the frozen type. Read More

Pound Cake is a a little calorie dense. I prefer store bought Angle Food cake for a lighter dessert. Whichever one you use toasting it boosts the flavor BIG time. Read More

Some people may think this is not a real recipe but I say we are so blessed to be able to buy ready-made products at our USA grocery stores. There are many versions of this dessert. For the cake...pound cake angle food cake bakery biscuits (my favorite)...the strawberries can be bought frozen and sweetened which I think are better than the apple-hard strawberries in the produce department. Lite frozen topping is great. Of course you can make a healthier version at home but it will take a little more work. Read More

I've done this a few times. I've also used Tweekies in place of the pound cake and found that pretty good too. Read More
