Have some fun and still stay on track with eating healthy and saving money. We did this on Smart Family with the help of Dr. Janet Maccaro who has written 11 books on natural remedies.
But today she is stepping out of her role to show us one of her favorite fun cakes to make at home and have the whole family enjoy it knowing what is inside the cake.
The cake is called Dr. Janet’s Hollywood cake. Here is the recipe:
Use pound cake and slice long way to make three layers.
Mix together the following:
1 container of part skim ricotta cheese
1/2 cup sugar or Stevia or sweeten to taste
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1 bar of German sweet chocolate
Then pulverized all ingredients in food processor
Then add 2/3 cup of sliced strawberries/or apples to the mix
Take the mix and fill between each of the three layers of the pound cake
Then frost the cake with heavy cream whipped or whipped topping reserve strawberries and chocolate shavings for garnish
** For best results wrap cake tightly in Saran wrap and refrigerate the cake overnight remove and frost with whipped cream just before slicing.
Dr. Janet says when she created this cake recipe she was a teenager at the time and since have made it for birthdays, weddings, bar mitzvahs, graduations, holidays, and even Hollywood stars.
