January 27: My fave dessert (so easy!)

Since this involves a pre-made pound cake, it's very easy. I keep a few in the freezer for a quick dessert. You can use frozen berries too.

Pound cake layered with raspberries

1 large pound cake (found in frozen food section of grocery store)
1 ½ package Neufchatel cream cheese
¾ cup powdered sugar
1 tsp. Vanilla           
3 Tbs. Butter, softened
½ cup Nutella
2 cups fresh raspberries

Using a serrated knife, cut the pound cake horizontally into four slices (3 cuts). Combine cream cheese, sugar, vanilla and butter in a stand mixer and mix until well combined. On each layer (except top) spread ½ of the Nutella, followed 1/3 of the cream cheese mixture and top with 1/3 of the berries. Do this for the two middle layers. On the top, spread the remaining 1/3 of the cream cheese mixture and top with remaining 1/3 raspberries. To serve, cut the cake vertically and place on dessert plate so the layers show. Top with whipped cream, if desired. Makes 6-8 servings. 

Conversation starter: Complete the sentence. "I wish I had three ______."
