It’s finally summer! The long awaited season of warm days and cool eats.
We love stocking up on fresh fruits and vegetables right now. In fact, we just went strawberry picking at a local farm last weekend. What an adventure! Who knew it would take so long to fill up our little baskets full of beautiful ripe strawberries!
To kick off the season and in honor of our strawberry picking adventure, I have a simple strawberry dessert idea for you! These are the kind of dishes we love to enjoy in the summer: super simple, delicious and most importantly fresh!
Strawberries and Cream over Pound Cake
Top slices of pound cake with sliced strawberries and whipped cream.
For an extra dose of indulgence: drizzle strawberry syrup
Tip: To bring out the sweetness of strawberries, toss sliced strawberries in a sprinkle of sugar for a few minutes. This will release the liquids from the strawberries or macerate them and essentially make a natural sauce.
What’s not to love here?
- no oven-used, just store bought pound cake
- fresh fruit, less guilt!
Now just grab a spoon and enjoy!
