My mom’s favorite dessert.
Preheat oven to 350ºF.
In a mixer cream together butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla. Add buttermilk and pudding mix and beat on low speed until combined. In a separate bowl sift together flour cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Slowly add to the butter mixture, alternating with the water. Blend until just combined. It is okay if the batter is a little lumpy.
Pour into a greased and floured 9×13 pan and bake for 30-35 minutes until a knife comes out clean. Allow to cool fully.
In a large cold bowl whip cream and 1/4 cup powdered sugar together until peaks form. Spread on top of the cake like frosting.
In a bowl combine the berries and remaining 3 tablespoons powdered sugar. Gently toss berries with your hands until the sugar is fully dissolved and the berries are well mixed. Using a slotted spoon, scoop the berries onto the top of the cake. Cut and serve immediately. Store any leftovers in the fridge.
Who doesn’t love a light, fruity dessert in the summer? Yes, I do have an unbeatable love for rich decadent desserts such as red velvet cake and chocolate but why not take a break for something healthier but still tastes good?
Top this with whipped cream, have it instead of salad for lunch, or pair it with yogurt and honey for a quick yet nutritious breakfast. You’ll feel good about it, I promise.
