This dessert is more elegant than the effort would indicate. Multiply the recipe times four to fill a bowl for a picnic. It’s especially beautiful if you layer fruit around the sides of the bowl.
- 1 kiwi
- 1 slice pound cake
- 1/2 mango
- 1 banana
- 3 ounces coconut pudding banana or even vanilla are acceptable substitutes
Cut pound cake into cubes of 1/4 inch square. Peel, quarter, then slice kiwis. Cut mango into blocks. Slice banana.
Use a parfait glass. Layer, starting with pudding, then cake, then fruit. End with pudding and top with a small bit of fruit in the middle as decoration.
Chill for at least 10 minutes to soften the cake, then serve.
Don’t wait until your kiwi is over-ripe to use it. Once a kiwi has become completely soft the flavor is too dominant.
