Short Cut Strawberry Short Cakes


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.

Prep Time:
10 mins
Additional Time:
15 mins
Total Time:
25 mins
5 servings


  • 2 cups sliced fresh strawberries

  • cup confectioners' sugar

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice, or to taste

  • 1 ½ cups frozen whipped topping, thawed

  • 1 (12 ounce) package prepared pound cake, cut into 1/2-inch slices


  1. Mix the strawberries in a bowl with confectioners' sugar and lemon juice; allow to stand about 15 minutes to form juice. Stir several times.

  2. Place a slice of pound cake onto a dessert plate, and spoon about 1/3 cup of strawberries and juice over the cake. Place a dollop of whipped topping on the berries, and top with another cake slice. Spoon another tablespoon or so of strawberries over the top to serve.
