I love to cook. It’s one of my favorite forms of relaxation. I thought I would borrow an idea from Rogi and post a recipe or two every once in a while. An advantage of not having Google crawling over my weblog page is that I can add recipes without worrying about search phrases such as hot oiled man or something similar.
Mother’s Day is coming up. If you’re entertaining I have the perfect dessert — Dream Cream Berries: fresh strawberries or other berries, pound cake, and Dream Cream.
If using strawberries, slice and sugar. Other berries don’t require sugaring, usually. Prepare your favorite pound cake recipe or buy one (if you must). Prepare one recipe Dream Cream.
To serve: Slice the pound cake, spoon berries on top of the cake and then smother in Dream Cream. Serve. Eat.
Dream Cream (US measurements):
1 pint whipping or heavy cream
1/2 cup powdered (confectioner’s) sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 individual serving sized container lemon yogurt (or raspberry or strawberry)
Whip the whipping cream until cream starts to thicken. Add powdered sugar and vanilla and continue beating until the whipping cream is very stiff. (Not too long, it’ll turn to butter.)
With a spatula gently fold in the yogurt until blended.
This is a simple, tasty, refreshing and fool proof dessert.
To make it perfect — add two squares of very dark, almost bitter but excellent quality chocolate to the side of the dessert plate before serving.
