Do you have a special event coming up quick? Need a dessert that will impress your family and friends? Well, pick up a Sara Lee® All Butter Pound Cake! You can whip up a quick, delicious recipe with a moist Sara Lee® All Butter Pound Cake just like these mini banana split trifles (they only take 10 seconds to thaw) and make any occasion special!
Don’t have a special event? Well, you can still grab a Sara Lee® Pound Cake whenever your sweet tooth is calling for a quick fix! Sara Lee® All Butter Pound Cake is the perfect dessert for a celebration as well as for every day recipes.
You can pick one up from your local Walmart in the freezer section for around $4.54 for the family size (1lb). That is what I did to make this easy but impressive dessert.
I took the idea of a banana split but made it a little more easy to serve. There will be no melty ice cream with these banana splits. I swapped out the ice cream for cubes of Sara Lee® Pound Cake and made pretty layered mini trifles.
The base is a Sara Lee® Pound Cake layered with chocolate mousse, sliced strawberries and bananas, plus crushed pineapple. All of those tasty flavors found in a banana split. And no banana split would be complete without a dollop of whipped cream with a cherry on top!
So delicious and so easy. Here are some other ways you can serve up a quick dessert using Sara Lee® All Butter Pound Cake.
