Chocolate Cake Parfait with Lemon Sauce

IMG_6316_1

Whenever I have leftover cake but I don’t have the heart to toss it out I change it into a new dessert. The other day I had leftover chocolate cake and decided I could cut up the cake and make a parfait. For me, a parfait has to have something creamy in the middle. Checking out what I had in the frig I came up with a light cream sauce. I also found some cherry pie filling I had recently used to try out another dessert.

Viola! I had all I needed to create a chocolate cake parfait with lemon cream sauce topped with cherries. The blending of the sweet chocolate with the tart cherries and lemon sauce worked very well together. Who knew leftovers could be made new all over again.IMG_6343_1

 

Chocolate Cake Parfait with Lemon Sauce

 Ingredients:

Mix together Greek yogurt and lemon curd in a small bowl. Place a small amount of lemon sauce in the bottom of a parfait glass. Add 4 -5 cubes of cake to the glass. Drizzle lemon sauce over the cake. Add a few more cubes of cake to the glass then drizzle more sauce over the cake. Spoon cherry pie filling over the lemon sauce and top with whipped cream if you desire.
