Pound Cake Parfaits…

Over the weekend I was linked to a Pound Cake recipe by my good pal and fellow blogger, Em . This recipe included sweetened condensed milk and that alone piqued my interest. Honestly, I was bored, it was Memorial Day and I had my fair share of planting flowers, so I headed off to the grocery store to grab a few ingredients. This recipe whipped together in no time and produced a gorgeous, sweet and delicious pound cake. Once it had cooled, I contemplated tossing it on the grill to serve alongside grilled pineapples. However, I ultimately made the decision to make use of all the amazing ripe berries in my fridge and create parfaits. Before I assembled the parfaits, I whipped up one cup of heavy cream with the rest of the sweetened condensed milk and folded in a variety of chopped berries. This created a berry cloud of sorts and made the parfaits absolutely drool-worthy! Trust me though…this pound cake would be just as scrumptious plain or with a shot of Reddi Wip! Layer this up in a pretty glass or glop it into your favorite cereal bowl, either way you will be in berry bliss!

This is absolutely THE BEST pound cake I have EVER tasted. It is the, rich, moist and flavorful. I like to bake most of my cakes in muffin pans...I took one bite- steaming hot bite- after another. I am so in love with this cake! I can't wait to try this with berries and other flavor combinations. Thank you so much for sharing. This is going in my written "cherished" recipies box.
