Summertime is the best time for fruit desserts. All the fruit is in season and it makes for a quick and easy treat you can whip up. This one I especially love since it combines all the classic flavors of strawberries, fluffy cream and poundcake.
I pretty sure this is what angels eat in the clouds.
This dessert is so easy and doesn't require any baking if you get bakery made pound cake. The juice from the strawberries soaks into the pound cake making it so tender and flavorful. Try this out on a hot day and it will be a big hit!
2 cups cold milk
1 package of instant vanilla pudding
16 ounces of whipped cream or whipped topping
1 pound of strawberries, cleaned, hulled and chopped into bite sized pieces
1/2 cup sugar
1 pound cake sliced
In a large bowl, combine the vanilla pudding and milk. Mix on high until the mixture is thick. Fold in the whipped cream.
In another bowl combine the strawberries and sugar.
Now to assemble!
Plop about half of the pudding mixture into a 9 X 13 pan. Sprinkle about half of the strawberries over the top. Then place the pound cake over the strawberries. If you have large gaps, tear the pound cake to fill in naked spots.
Evenly spread out the remaining strawberries over the top of the pound cake layer.
Then spread over the remaining pudding mixture. I like to have a few strawberries poking out to make the whole thing pretty.
Chill this in the fridge for about 2 hours or more before serving.
