Who don’t like Berry fruits?
Can you resist feeling starving for something sweet?
How about something cool like a jello or creamy like a cream cheese frosting or delicious like strawberries?
I always make sure my freezer stocked with frozen berries even if we are in the season of fresh ones. Do you?
You know, Sometimes you feel lazy to go get some from the store or even you don’t have the time to go if you want something quick and easy.
They are very handy, I like to put some purée of these berries with the homemade lemonade it makes a very delicious combination.
In this recipe I used a frozen berry mix with the jello to top the layers of cake and cream cheese frosting, its cool dessert, refreshing, sweet and delicious.
for the cake layer :
1 3\4 cups cake flour
1 1\2 teaspoon baking powder
1\4 teaspoon salt
1\2 teaspoon baking soda
1 stick of butter (1\2 cup) softened
2 eggs at room temperature
3\4 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1\4 cup yogurt
1\4 cup milk
apricot jam (to brush the finished cake)
for the cream cheese frosting:
4 oz cream cheese at room temperature
1 bag dream whip (the powder)
1\2 can nestle table cream
2 tablespoon milk
2 tablespoon powdered suger
for the top layer:
jello berry flavor
frozen berry fruits
Heat the oven 350° f. Beat the butter and sugar on medium speed with stand mixer until light and fluffy, add the eggs one at a time and the vanilla, beating just until blended after each addition.
Sift together the flour salt baking powder baking soda, add to the egg batter alternately with the milk and yogurt, fold it gently after each addition, beat at low-speed for seconds.
Line 13 x 9 pan with parchment paper,brush with oil and dust with flour, You need two thin layers of cake so pour half the batter into the pan, bake it until a tooth pick comes clean (around 15 minutes), continue the same with second half.
Let the cake cool down while you prepare the cream filling, beat the dream whip and table cream with the milk and powdered sugar, add the cream cheese beat until fluffy and smooth.
Prepare the jello as directed, since I used a frozen fruits so let it thaw at room temperature.
Spread 1 tablespoon of the jam on each layer of cake, set the first layer in the pan spread the filling of cream over it then the second layer of cake, then the fruits and pour the jello over the top.
Let the cake cool in the fridge for a couple of hours untill the jello set and harden.
