In the summer I love fruit. Watermellon is a fave when it's sweet, cantaloupe (if it isn't sweet, my family slices it up and leaves in the fridge overnight with sugar sprinkled on them
), and of course strawberries dipped in sugar as you are eating them!!!
I came up with my own version of punch bowl cake with pineapple that is delightful any time of the year but soooo refreshing during the scorching summer heat.
1.)Bake a white cake mix with a small box of vanilla pudding sirred in. Let this cool and then cut into chunks.
2.)While the cake is baking mix together the following: One larege box of vanilla pudding made according to the box's directions, one larege tub of coolwhip, and one can crushed pineapple (size depends on how much pineapple you prefer). Chill
3.)After the cake is cooled and cut into cubes, layer the cake chunks and pineapple mixture in a large bowl ending with pineapple mixture on top. You may garnish this with fresh berries of your choice. I like to place berries around the rim and a large sprig of mint in the middle. Chill for 4 hours or overnight. YUMMY!
