To create the perfect red, white, and blue cake for your Fourth of July festivities, I have a super easy recipe for you!
1 vanilla cake mix (you can make your own, but if you’re juggling event prep too, this is much easier.)
1 tub of whipped cream
1 cup of sliced strawberries
1 cup of raspberries
1 cup of blueberries
- Prepare the cake mix as directed in a rectangle cake pan, and let cool.
- Once cool, apply whipped cream to top of cake
- Add blueberries on left hand side, creating a pattern like that on the flag.
- Use alternating strawberries and raspberries to create stripes.
- Enjoy your cake! Keep in the refrigerator if you aren’t serving immediately.
This is a super easy, and healthy, twist on an old favorite of a banana split. To make this one, you’ll need some bananas, other fruit, granola, honey or shredded chocolate, nuts, and your favorite kind of yogurt. To make this recipe vegan, try coconut or almond milk yogurt, I found a great one, it’s unsweetened and will be perfect with fruit.
Cut in the middle the length of the banana.
Set in a bowl or dish, with some space in between.
Add yogurt, fruit and granola in between the banana slices.
Add a dash of honey or shredded chocolate for a tasty topping.
And don’t forget the crushed walnuts!
Enjoy! This is perfect for a sweet summer treat, that also has a healthy twist.
Wow your guests with my gram’s homemade apple pie recipe. This was a staple at my house during Thanksgiving, and remains one of my all-time favorite pies.
- 5 sliced apples
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon flour
- 1 tablespoon butter
- Pie crust (2- one for top and one for bottom) (From scratch or pre-made, both work.)
- Mix sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl.
- Add flour.
- Put apples in crust. Pile them heavier towards the middle.
- Sprinkle sugar mixture on top.
- Add 1 tablespoon butter on top in the center.
- Put crust on top.
- Bake at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for about 45 minutes. When juice bubbles in the center, it is done.
I hope y’all enjoy my gram’s pie recipe as much as I do!
