Six months or so ago I stumbled across this Paula Deen recipe on Bakerella’s blog. (Notice Paul yearning for some cake in the background of this picture…)
My life hasn’t been the same since! Okay, maybe that’s a BIT of an exaggeration, but not by much. This has become my go-to dessert. It’s pretty quick to make, relatively easy, and I usually have these ingredients on hand! We had family over this weekend, so I just HAD to make it for them! I serve it with whipped cream made from scratch.
So if you have a mixer…whipped cream is THE easiest thing in the world to make:
Step 1: Dump a pint of whipped cream into your mixer with the whisk attachment.
Step 2: Add a little sugar.
Step 3. Turn on the mixer.
Yup…that’s it. Walk away for a few minutes, and when you come back MAGIC! And then you’ll ask yourself, “Why have I been buying cool whip all these years?!?” Who knew whipped cream could be so delicious?!?
This is what the whipped cream looks like all cuddled up with the cake…
Aren’t they cute?!?
This is one of those desserts that becomes even better the second or third day in the fridge. Luckily (or unfortunately?) I have lots of chocolate cake leftover and my hubby is gone for a few days. So in approximately two minutes, I’m planning on curling up on the couch with my favorite pink blanket and a big piece of cake to watch The Hurt Locker. Night!
