- Yield: 6-8 kebabs
Fresh fruit can be enjoyed on its own, but why not add some sweetness with squares of freshly baked vanilla cake? Pass us a kabob skewer please!
Ingredients:3 large eggs
1/3 cup oil
1/4 cup water
1 box Simple Mills Vanilla Cake Mix
1/2 tbsp vanilla extract
1 pint strawberries, hulled, rinsed and dried (cut the larger berries in half)
1 pint blueberries, rinsed and dried
2-4 bananas, chopped in 1” slices
Additional equipment: 1 package of bamboo skewers (available at most grocery stores)
Instructions:PREHEAT the oven to 350°F.
GREASE an 8x11” baking pan and set aside.
WHISK together the eggs and oil in a large mixing bowl, then continue beating while slowly adding the water until completely incorporated.
ADD the cake mix and stir vigorously until all of the dry is incorporated into the wet and no clumps remain.
POUR the batter into the prepared cake pan and bake for 25-30 minutes, until the top is golden brown and a cake tester comes out clean.
COVER with plastic wrap and freeze for at least a few hours (ideally overnight), after allowing the cake to cool completely.
CUT the frozen cake into 1” squares (it does not need to be exact), and thread one onto your first skewer. FOLLOW the cake bite with a hulled strawberry, another piece of cake, two blueberries, another piece of cake, and a slice of banana. If you choose, you can finish with an additional piece of cake.
SERVE immediately, or store in the refrigerator in an airtight container until it is time to serve.
