I love pound cake. I mean, honestly, who doesn’t? It’s so stinking delicious! So I’m excited to be doing another post with Sara Lee Desserts! (You can check out my last post with Sara Lee here — Mini Berry Trifles with Lemon Whipped Cream) This time around, I wanted to try out grilling the pound cake. I’ve seen a few recipes using grilled pound cake and I was intrigued. (Like this recipe for Mini Grilled Strawberry Shortcake Skewers or this one for Grilled Pound Cake with Berries and Whipped Cream). Strawberries are in season so a Strawberry Shortcake recipe was in order… but I upped the flavor by adding Nutella Whipped Cream. Oh yes. Ingredients: 1 family sized Sara Lee Pound Cake 1 16 oz pack of strawberries 1/2 cup nutella 1 cup whipping cream cooking spray #spon: I’m required to disclose a relationship between our site and Sara Lee.

I’m so ready for spring. I am trying to will the warmer weather to be here ASAP by making a bunch of spring-themed posts. Sara Lee must have read my mind because they contacted me about using their yummy pound cake in a recipe — what better way to show off Sara Lee Pound Cake than with a trifle? This berry trifle uses fresh berries, pound cake, and fresh whipped cream with lemon curd, making a yummy and bright spring dessert. I made them in mini trifle bowls but you can adapt this recipe to go in a traditional trifle bowl. Ingredients (makes 4 mini trifles): 2 cups heavy whipping cream 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/2 teaspoon sugar 1 jar ( roughly 11 oz) lemon curd 1 Sara Lee pound cake, defrosted strawberry jam 1 pint blueberries 1 pint raspberries 2 strawberries, halved #spon: I’m required to disclose a relationship between our site and Sara Lee.

I’m so ready for spring. I’m sick of the cold and wind, although we didn’t have any snow this year. So I am going to force spring upon you in the hope of it pushing the warmer months up a little bit. When I think of spring, I always think of Strawberries. And what better way to show off strawberries than in Strawberry Shortcake? I decided to make them in cupcake form because, well, I like cupcakes. I used a Martha Stewart recipe for angel food cake to make the cupcake, filled the inside of the cupcake with a strawberry-sugar mixture, and topped it off with a strawberry whipped cream icing. These are pretty delicious if I do say so myself! Ingredients: Angel Food Cake Cupcakes: 1 cup cake flour (spooned and leveled) 1/4 teaspoon salt 12 large egg whites, room temperature 4 teaspoons lemon juice and zest from 1 lemon, divided 1 1/4 cups sugar 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract Strawberry filling: 3/4 container of strawberries, hulled and chopped 2 tablespoons sugar Strawberry whipped cream: 1 8-oz container cream cheese 3/4 cup white sugar 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract lemon zest from lemon used in angel food cake 2 … Continue reading
