Poundcake Fruit Mold - No Bake (3 Ingredients) Video

Pin It
My friend Diane made this after watching my video... doesn't it look mouth watering?

I have been making this recipe for over 25 years. It's one of the easiest most delectable recipes ever... better yet, it's no bake, SCORE!

I created this recipe in the mindset of helping out my fellow hostesses when I was a Tupperware lady.  Not only could I alleviate some of the stress entailed in being a hostess, I actually got to share some of my favorite recipes with them as well.  See what I have to say on the video...

An absolutely easy recipe, yet the flavor, is next to none! No one will ever know it's non-bake.  Unless you want to tell them that is!
The base is pound cake (heaven), then the fruit of our choice, canned, frozen or fresh.  The co-star being the non-dairy topping.  I know, just hand me a spoon, who am I kidding?



The two amazing Tupperware dealers as mentioned on the video from our FB community are:



Ready for the recipe?  Here we go;

Ingredients:
1 16oz container frozen pound cake, defrosted
1 15Oz can fruit of choice, drained-reserving juice (I used pears in the video)
1/3 cup fresh or frozen fruit drained of choice (I used strawberries)
{or 1.5 cans fruit of choice drained}
1 8Oz container of frozen non-dairy topping, defrosted
*optional* 1/3 cup roasted nuts + 1/2 tsp granulated sugar

Directions:
-We start by cutting our loaf of pound cake into 16 slices.  We cut the 8 slices in half making fingers.  Set aside.

-Drain your canned fruit and reserve the juice in a separate bowl.

-If you are going to use nuts, I would dry pan roast the nuts now and when roasted and placed in a bowl, toss with 1/2 tsp granulated sugar.  Set aside.

-Dip your first pound cake finger slightly in the reserved fruit juice and mold into your jello mold. Continue dipping and pressing the fingers till the perimeter has been enclosed, or you become dizzy, whichever comes first.

-Spread 1/3 cup or so of the non-dairy topping on the bottom of the mold.  Add, 1/3 of your fruit.  Top off with the larger pieces of pound cake that have been dipped lightly into the reserved juice.  Sprinkle with half of the nuts.

-Repeat the layering one more time ending with the nuts.

-Using your Tupperware lid, burp according to the instructions on the video till you have a very flat, almost concave lid.  Place in the refrigerator for at least 1/2 hour.

-After the allotted time, bring the mold out and invert either onto the Tupperware tray, or a pretty platter.  Remove the top, smaller lid off first (see video), and then unmold in the gentlest of manners. What?  Cut and serve.

-Additional fresh fruit for garnish makes the plates look so pretty!  While no one is looking, grab a couple of fresh fruit pieces for yourself.  You did do the work and all...

This is one of the most easiest of desserts, yes? Nevertheless, elegant enough to serve on any occasion.  
So my friends, grab a pound cake and be the star of the show!

Till next time!!
