Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place sugar and mint in a small food processor; cover and process until blended. Set aside.

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

  • In a large bowl, cream butter and 1-3/4 cups confectioners sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in 4-1/2 teaspoons reserved mint mixture. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add mashed potato flakes alternately with 1/4 cup cream. Stir in lemon juice and peel.

  • Pour into a greased and floured 9 x 13-inch baking dish. Bake for 60-70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.

  • In a large bowl, beat remaining cream until it begins to thicken. Add 1/2 cup confectioners sugar and 1 tablespoon mint mixture; beat until stiff peaks form. Fold in lemon curd; set aside.

  • In another bowl, combine strawberries and blueberries with remaining mint mixture and confectioners sugar.

  • Cube cake into 2 squares. Layer in glassware starting with a dollop of the cream mixture, a spoonful of berries and a couple cake cubes. Repeat.

This recipe was delightful! I burnt a traditional pound cake and wanted to rescue it. So I went to allrecipes to help me out. Although I did not make the pound cake in the recipe I used the lemon mint whipped cream and the fruit per recipe and was able to use my cake trimmed of it's dark sides. The recipe doesn't really require much cake. Everyone has enjoyed it and asked for the recipe. It is light and refreshing! Perfect for summer! Read More
