This is a quick and easy dessert made from leftover cake and unsweetened applesauce. It would be even more delicious with homemade applesauce, but in a pinch, this is a good dessert. Any kind of cake would be good, but something with a spicy, sharp flavor is especially nice. This is my adaptation of a favorite Norwegian dessert and a good way to use up some leftover cake.
APPLESAUCE AND CAKE PARFAIT
- 2-½ cups leftover cake*
- 1-½ cups unsweetened applesauce
- ¾ cup frozen whipped topping, thawed
*I used 6 of my white wine mini-cakes (recipe here)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
Crumble cake or pulse several times in food processor. Place on ungreased baking sheet and bake in a 350 degree F oven for 20 minutes. Stir, spread and break up clumps of cake every 5 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool.
Measure out 1/3 cup of crumbs and spoon 1-1/2 tablespoons of this measurement into a parfait glass. Top with 2 Tblsp. of applesauce and 1 Tblsp. of whipped topping.
Repeat with 1-1/2 Tblsp. from measurement of crumbs, 2 Tblsp. applesauce and 1 Tblsp. topping. Place remaining measure of crumbs on top.
