My best friend, Danielle, used to do all of the cooking back in the day. I NEVER cooked. It happened by chance. I just one day decided to put a pot on the stove. Haven’t turned back since! Back to the story. My bad. Danielle made some super bomb desserts! She introduced me to one called Strawberry Delight! And the name fit it perfectly! It instantly became my favorite thing to have her make! And it was extremely easy! I hadn’t made it in years before this Thanksgiving mishap transpired.
On this past Thanksgiving, I was in the middle of baking pound cakes when I realized I was out of Baker’s Joy! I figured I’d just flour and grease the pan. Big mistake! The damn cake stuck! I mean, it was glued to the pan! That’s what I get for being lazy! I went into panic mode. And that’s how my version of Strawberry Delight was created…
Yeah, it’s definitely not a cute dessert. It looks a mess! But, I promise, no one will care about the looks after tasting this heavenly treat! Danielle’s version used Nilla wafers instead of cake and Cool Whip instead of fresh cream. I had to be extra! And I definitely encourage you too be extra too!
I’ve made this with Cream Cheese Pound Cake and it was great. But, I do prefer using my Easy White Cake recipe http://www.coopcancook.com/easy-white-cake/ in this. I made a few changes to the cake recipe. I used strawberry extract instead of almond. I also used Vanilla Coconut almond milk instead of whole milk. Yummy! So, feel free to play around with the flavors.
Not one, not two, but three recipes back to back this week!!! I’m on a roll! lol You know I couldn’t let National Pineapple Upside Down Cake Day pass me by! Pineapples make me happy. They’re really my favorite food. Ever. And this cake is super easy! Making it in my cast iron skillet was a breeze!
Easy right?? And so delicious!
Whipping and incorporating the egg whites into the batter separately from the yolks makes a huge difference in the texture of this cake!
Sweet tooth alert! One of my goals is to take the fear away from beginner cooks that shy away from “homemade” and “from scratch” recipes. It’s not as hard as you think! I believe in you! You can do it! I’m here to help. Take this banana pudding. No box of of pudding mix necessary. It just breaks my heart to see people buying that “banana pudding” from the deli at grocery stores. It’s literally banana pudding. It’s instant banana cream flavored pudding mix and vanilla wafer. The devil is busy!! That’s why i’m sharing this with my Cookies. Don’t settle for less out of fear. I promise my version is super easy. Watch me whip it up…
See. Piece of cake, right? Told ya it was easy! Make this!!
