So remember how I taught you how to bake a cake that was super delicious, super fast and super easy? Well this dessert is even easier and still super delicious. (Using a lot of “Supers” today -_-)
For this one you don’t actually have to make anything. Yes you heard me right, you don’t make anything, you just assemble. So no I am not giving you a recipe, I am just giving you an assembly manual.
You will need the following store bought items:
- Pound Cake
- Whipped Cream
In its simpler form you get two slices of pound cake and spread whipped cream on each side (a generous amount). Then you place the raspberries on top of one slice (make them stand up if you want to look like a pro at this), and then you just put the other half on top of the raspberries. That’s it! A deliciously sweet sandwich. You can garnish with a cute pick or a sprig of mint, and it will look great and taste even better.
Now, you might say, “Pfff, this is not fancy enough for my refined palate or my guests’.” To you I say, aren’t we lofty… I mean, don’t worry; I got you! Here is an alternative that is a little more elaborate (this one does need a recipe):
Want to make it fall themed? Here is a fall version!
(Here is a picture of fall foliage for your viewing pleasure)
-2 cups whipped cream
-1/4 tsp of cinnamon
-1/2 tsp of vanilla (even better if you use the pulp of a vanilla bean)
-1/4 tsp of nutmeg
-1 thinly sliced pear
Mix cinnamon, vanilla, nutmeg, and whipped cream. Careful not to over mix and deflate it. Then assemble same as before, just replace the raspberries with the sliced pear.
Want to make it even more special, and more adult? Macerate (fancy word for soak) the sliced pear in 1/2 a cup of brandy for 30 minutes to 1 hour and you have a pretty refined dessert for your very advanced palate.
But I promise this only takes a second to make and will taste delicious whether it is the simple version or the kicked up fall one!
