I have to honestly say, one way to show my husband I love him is through his stomach. While cheesecake is still his number one love, he also loves layered desserts with ice cream. In this simple recipe, we incorporate a favorite from each family member. The best part, we can all enjoy it because we a simple switch it becomes a dairy free dessert. Best of all, it can be made with very simple ingredients!
Triple Berry Layered Angel Food Cake To begin, you will want to gather your ingredients. We had fresh berries on hand, so it was a no-brainer. I love that berries add so much color and texture to foods. As far as the cake in concerned, you can go the easy route and purchase a premade Angel Food cake, or you can try your hand at making one using my delicious dairy-free Angel Food Cake recipe.
1 cup blackberries
1 cup strawberries, sliced
1/2 cup raspberries
1/2 Angel Food Cake cubed
Ice Cream (we use so delicious Almondmilk vanilla)
Directions This is really simple to put together because you are simply layering. Start with your desired berry and add enough to just cover the bottom. Then add a layer of Angel Food cake pieces.
Top those off with another layer of berries followed by ice cream. Then top off with your final berry garnish. If you choose to do so, you can also drizzle with chocolate or add a mint leaf for a finished look. Mine never make it quite that far if I am serving them to my family. If you are serving this to your guests, you can prepare them with the layers of berries and cake and store in the refrigerator covered for a couple of hours. Then just before serving add the layer of ice cream and final berries.
This was the perfect way to show off our new Luigi Bormioli glasses. For glasses, they are extremely beautiful. They are thick and waited and the bottom and sleek and slender at the top. While I was worried about the kids breaking them, they have been unbelievable strong due to the SON.hyx type of glass that is used to strengthen & keep glass brilliant. They begin as an oval on the bottom and open into a full circle on the top, playing mind games with you if it is your first time using them. I love that they are dishwasher safe, lead free and eco-friendly.
