Strawberry Party Loaf (T&T)
With strawberry season upon us, here is a great tried and true recipe for using
those fresh juicy strawberries. You can use your own pound cake, but I make it simple
by buying an Entenmann's All Butter Pound Cake! It's kind of like a pseudo-Strawberry
Shortcake, but MUCH better!
Fast, easy and delicious!
1 pint fresh strawberries, washed and sliced
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 pound cake, cut lengthwise in 4 layers
1 pound ricotta cheese
2 ounces (+/-) semi-sweet chocolate, finely chopped
1/4 cup (+/-) Amaretto liqueur
1 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup confectioner's sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract Instructions
In medium bowl, combine strawberries and sugar; let stand 20 minutes.
Stir in cheese and chocolate.
Brush cake layers with amaretto.
Spread one cake layer with 1 cup cheese mixture.
Place second layer on top.
Repeat with remaining ingredients, ending with a top layer of cake.
In small mixer bowl, beat cream with confectioners' sugar and vanilla extract.
Spoon cream onto cake and frost.
Garnish with whole strawberries.
