Mama Prior's Company's comin' dessert

Dish: Desserts
Dish Type: Pineapple
Difficulty: 1 / 10
Servings: 4
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time:

  • 1 lb. - butter pound cake
  • 4 oz. can - crushed pineapple
  • 1/2 pint - whipped cream
  • to taste - sugar
  • - sliced strawberries

This is so simple... but oh so good!!

Crumble the pound cake into mixing bowl

add pineapple (do not drain juice)

whip heavy whipping cream into soft peaks

add sugar (to taste) to whipped cream

**save some whipped cream for garnish**

add whipped cream to cake and pineapple; fold in gently to create a "chunky" pudding like consistency

the best and prettiest way to serve this is to use tall parfait glasses.  Into each glass place a heaping tbsp of pudding mixture, a few sliced straberries, then continue layering.  Top with a nice dollop of whipped cream and a straberry slice.  Keep chilled until serving.  this is a really elegant looking dessert and absolutely delicious!
