    1 egg
    1 tsp Vanilla
    3 Cups Assorted fresh berries

    Whipping Cream Recipe:
    In a chilled mixing bowl add 1 cup whipping cream (liquid– you’ll find it in refridgered section at the store), 2 TBS sugar, and 1/2 tsp vanilla. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until soft peeks form.

    Busy Day Cake with Broiled Coconut Topping: ( I highly recommend this!!!)
    Prepare as above, except omit berries and Whipped Cream. While cake is baking, mix 1/4 cup packed brown sugar and 2 TBS softened butter. Stir in 1 TBS milk. Stir in 1/2 cup coconut and if desired, 1/4 cup chopped nuts. Spread over warm cake. Broil 4 inches from heat 2-3 minutes or until golden. Cool on wire rack 30 minutes. Serve warm!
