Components of Strawberry Lasagna

It is made from prepared pound cake from the store (I buy frozen pound cake and defrost it), a creamy cream cheese and pudding mixture, and fresh strawberries sweetened and flavored with a  sugar and kirsch. A little fudge sauce can be drizzled on top if you want a little chocolate.

Easy Make-Ahead Dessert

Strawberry Lasagna is a little like strawberry shortcake made in a 9X13-inch pan and it is the perfect make ahead dessert for spring and summer picnics and potlucks.

We are right in the middle of strawberry season in South Carolina and juicy, ripe strawberries are plentiful. We have a few strawberry farms in our area so it would seem like a crime to not try and eat them every day while they are at their prime. This Strawberry Lasagna is the perfect way to showcase them.

Thin layers of pound cake are topped with a thick and creamy cream cheese mix. Two layers of strawberry “sauce” give this dessert plenty of fresh strawberry flavor. A little kirsch, a clear fruit brandy with the flavor of cherries, is added to the strawberries for extra flavor.  If you don’t wish to buy a bottle of kirsch, I think you could leave it out or try adding a little juice from a jar of maraschino cherries. Whipped topping and fudge sauce make a delightful finish to this beautiful dessert.

  1. You say set aside 1 cup of strawberry mixture, but later say puree 1/2 cupof mixture. What do you do with remaining 1/2 cup that was set aside?

    1. I believe it was to be a half( 1/2) cup that was to be set aside, not a whole cup. You puree that and drizzle on top.
      At least, that’s what I did. I believe it was a mistype.

  2. Wowza! This dessert looks delicious! I am all about anything with strawberries right now … and topped with that fudge sauce? Awesome!

    Girl, are you trying to give me a heart attack? I’m in love with this! It looks/sounds similar to a Brazilian recipe called “Pavê”, but instead of the cake we use ladyfinger cookies, almost like tiramisu! Your post made me feel nostalgic! 🙂 And beautiful pictures, btw! I love your photography skills!
