For as long as I can remember, my great aunt has been making this dessert and has brought it to countless church lunches. It was always such a hit that if you wanted any of it you would have to get a bowl of it when you went through the line for your other food. It went FAST!
As I was looking for a great dessert dish to for my Christmas party, I had my mom look up the recipe since she’s made it a few times herself. I just knew it would be a hit, and I couldn’t have been more right.
Now, I will say that after making it the first time, I corrected a few mistakes I made along the way, and it was exceptionally better on the second go around. Some of you who have eaten it have asked for the recipe, and some of you will by dying to make it once you see how easy and how terrific it looks.
Here’s what you’re going to need….
1 carton of strawberries, diced
16 oz. tub of Cool Whip
Large packet of Vanilla Jell-o Pudding Mix
Sara Lee Pound Cake
And these additional ingredients….
14 oz. can Eagle brand sweetened condensed milk
1 1/2 cups cold water
Cut up pound cake into small chunks.
Mix the water, sweetened condensed milk, and pudding mix together.
Chill in the refrigerator for NO MORE, NO LESS than 5 minutes.
Fold in whipping cream to mixture made in step two.
Add diced strawberries on top for garnish.
Refrigerate for at least two hours….the longer, the better.
I hope you all enjoy this terrific dessert. I guess it’s a little late for the beloved Valentine’s Day, but it is definitely worth sticking back in a file for next year.
And now for a quick subject change……..
