Strawberry Shortcake Parfaits

September 29, 2009

So on Saturday night I made Strawberry Shortcake Parfaits.  I’m not really sure why… it just seemed like something to do.

First I made a pound cake…. WOW is it heavy!

Debbie Greaves Pound Cake

I got the recipe from Allyn… she got it from the wonderful Debbie Greaves.  I don’t know if I’m allowed to share the recipe with all of you.  But any kind of cake will do.  I like HEAVY buttery cake, so this worked for me.  Once it was cool, I cut the cake into small cubes.

Then there were the strawberries…  Everyone had strawberries and I felt compelled to buy them.

Sliced them up and sprinkled them with sugar and just let them macerate by themselves.

And then whipping cream…. the real stuff with some vanilla and sugar.

Layer after layer in my Picarde glasses.  Aren’t they pretty?  I had to drag people over to my place to eat them all.

I recommend this… it’s fun.  I might do it with different kinds of cake, fruit, toppings.

My stepmom has a recipe that she’s going to send me for a banana split cake type thing.  Seeing is believing on that but it makes me think of a banana split parfait…. hummmmm.
