Fruit Topping

Canned strawberries, peaches or other fruit pie fillings may be used instead of cherries. Recently I've preferred cherries, which rather surprised me.

Cook Time

Prep Time: approx. 15 (plus set time)

Total Time: few hours

Serves: 6

Ingredients

  • 1 frozen pound cake (10 -11 oz) thawed
  • 1 can (about 21 oz) chilled cherry pie filling (or any berry pie filling you like)
  • 1/3 cup Hershey's choco (regular or dark)
  • 1/2 cup powered sugar
  • 1 container (8 oz.) of frozen non-dairy whipped topping thawed (about 3 cups)

Instructions

  1. Slice pound cake horizontally into three sectioned layers.
  2. Put bottom cake layer on serving plate and top with 1/2 of the fruit filling.
  3. Put second cake layer on top of cherries and top with the rest of the fruit filling.
  4. Put the last rounded cake layer on top.
  5. Put in refrigerator to chill for 2 hours.
  6. FROSTING
  7. Sift cocoa and powered sugar into whipped topping and stir until it is all blended.
  8. Immediately spread over top and the sides of cake until it is covered completely.
  9. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  10. Always refrigerate any remaining cake.

      @LiteraryMind: I've done it with peaches, but the ice cream sounds good also. Thanks for the ideas.

      Open a can of peaches and put a scoop of ice cream on it. This is a good idea. Looks pretty fancy.

      Sometimes just an orange cut up with a little plain yogurt and a drizzle of maple syrup works well in a pinch!

      Sound delish. Of course I may have to make a few practice ones and try them out myself before I serve it to company. Quality assurance and all that. ;)

      Sounds super easy and yummy! I would have to go with the strawberry pie filling I think though. Blessings. :)

      Yeah, I run to the bakery that's a block away and buy something; that's a plus of big city living.

      I have made the Pound cake for years when in a quick bind...and when I don't have a filling, I use jams or jellies, you can even use two different flavors at one time, they make a delicious tasting cake.
