2 pints fresh strawberries, hulled and halved
4 tbsp sugar
2 cups whipping cream, whipped
4oz cream cheese, softened at room temperature
1 good quality pound cake, shop-bought
½ cup seedless raspberry jelly, melted
Add 2 tbsp of sugar to the sliced strawberries and mix gently.
In a separate bowl, mix a further 2 tbsp of sugar into the softened cream cheese. Fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture.
Cut the pound cake into 1/3inch thick slices and place them in a glass bowl. Spread the raspberry jelly on top. Layer with the strawberries and cream cheese mixture. Repeat layering – finish with a layer of the cream cheese.
This is a lovely summer dessert.
