I always look forward to this event. This is the third (fourth?) year that I've participated. The weather has not cooperated this year and neither has the grocery store. Because it is raining, picture taking is a challenge and the store had no lady fingers! Horrors! How is a gal supposed to pull off an elegant dessert without them? I seriously considered whipping up a batch, but came to my senses. I settled for pound cake instead.
Lady Fingers Recipe (This recipe does not require piping. It makes the lady finger batter into cupcakes.)
My Very Simple Recipe
* coffee ice cream
* purchased pound cake soaked in a bit of coffee and flavoring (coffee brandy would be lovely; I had something else. ☺)
* whipped cream
* mini chocolate chips for garnish
Simply layer all ingredients in some lovely stemware ending with whipped cream on top and the chocolate.
It made a delicious "breakfast" now let me tell you! That's the look of the first hmmmmmm...
Thank you, Suzy, for another fun year of socializing over ice cream.
