Last week I let you in on my families favorite ice cream recipe. This week I am sharing our favorite cake. My mom has probably made this cake at least a couple hundred times in her life. She has seven children and almost all of us would request this cake for our birthday…..every year.
I love this cake because it is so easy to make. It has basic ingredients and it makes a large sheet cake so it is great to take to pot lucks and parties…..or you can eat it all yourself. :)
Fresh or frozen raspberries also work well in this dessert, and one of my friends always uses the frozen berry blend of strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and blackberries when she makes it. Do whatever makes you happy.
Strawberry Shortcake Dessert1 white cake mix, made according to package directions and baked in a sheet cake pan 1 8 ounce package cream cheese 1/2 cup powdered sugar 1 8 ounce container whipped cream 1 4-3/4 ounce packet of Danish Dessert (you can find it by the jello in your grocery store) Danish Dessert comes in two flavors-Raspberry and Strawberry 3-4 cups fresh or frozen berries
Cool cake completely. Mix cream cheese and powdered sugar until fluffy. Add whipping cream and mix until well blended. Spread cream cheese mixture onto cooled cake. Prepare Danish dessert according to directions on back for Tangy Danish Pudding. Let cool slightly and then add fruit. Spoon fruit mixture evenly over cream cheese mixture and refrigerate until you serve it. Also refrigerate any leftovers.
This is a sure hit. I took it to a party last week and barely made it home with this little piece to eat for breakfast. :)
Hope it can be a family favorite for your families too.
