Here is a great summer, 4th of July dessert to share. It is oh, so delicious!! Why do I love dessert so very much??
1 pound cake, cubed into 1" pieces
1 1/2 c. melted strawberry jam or syrup
6 c. fresh or frozen strawberries, raspberries & blueberries
2 pints fresh whipped cream (mixed with 1/2 c. sugar & 1 tsp. vanilla)
1/2 c. sugar, divided
Mix berries with sugar. If you want to make it red, white & blue, keep red & blue berries separate. I mixed strawberries and raspberries together. I did fresh and frozen berries mixed, just because it was what I had on hand. You can put the berries in frozen, don't worry about thawing them- but fresh tastes best... In a large trifle dish, or glass bowl, layer pound cake, drizzle part of jam, a layer of each fruit and whipped cream, repeat layers. Save some fruit to decorate the top. Chill at least 1 hour before serving.
