The hot weather is almost here and that means we’ll all be looking for shortcuts in the kitchen.
A few days ago, Clenna found a dessert recipe that’s perfect for those lazy hazy days of summer!
It’s super easy, quick to make, and best of all – there’s NO cooking involved!
Now that’s the way to my “too hot to turn on the oven”-lovin’ heart. 😉
Since there are only two of us, I made half of the recipe for Sir Beads and me. After a quick search in my cupboard, I chose this over-sized glass goblet for a serving dish! (It holds about 4 servings.)
It’s de-licious, a lot like strawberry shortcake . . .
but so very speedy to make that I’m calling it:
Strawberry Quick Cake
* An angel food cake
* A container of strawberries
* Whipped Topping (I used Whipped Cream)
Wash and slice strawberries
Tear the angel food cake into bite size pieces
For a pretty presentation – alternately layer cake pieces and berries in a clear glass bowl or goblet (but any bowl will do).
Top with whipped cream and serve immediately!
As soon as Sir Beads finished his last spoonful, he sighed and said:
(Original recipe found here)
Have a Safe and Happy Memorial Day Weekend!
(Maybe you’ll make some Strawberry Quick Cake.) 😉
I’d love to hear your thoughts!
Oooo la la. This looks heavenly….I want to make BUT the past two times that I bought strawberries…they went bad in 2 days. One batch didn’t just mold, but they looked like they had mildew on them (yuck). I cannot wait until we get some fresh batches in my neck of the woods.
Cool recipe…I see all kinds of substitutions and additions to fit the occasion. Thanks for posting.
Wow!! That looks wonderful. I want some.
I will be making this one for sure. It will be a great refreshing dessert come this summer. Have a wonderful Memorial Day, everyone. I think I will make this and add some blueberries for our family get together on Monday. Thank you for the great idea, Clenna!
Oh gosh, that looks so yummy! I’m going to have to make this soon, especially with all of the fresh strawberries at the farm stands now. Crystal, your photo is pretty enough to be in a magazine! 🙂 xoxo
