We love pound cake whether it’s from the store or homemade. If you are short on time but still want the wow-factor, this no bake mixed berry easy pound cake recipe is the dessert for you!
I made this no bake mixed berry pound cake recipe for an after-dinner treat with friends and it was delicious. It’s so cute and super easy to make with just a handful of ingredients.
In fact, I hesitate to even call this a recipe. Really, it’s just mixing a few things together and stacking them up. But my oh my is it good. Sometimes I make pound cake from scratch, but this is a great option for a last minute no-bake dessert.

Pound Cake is the Perfect Easy Summer Dessert
There’s just something about berries in the summer and when you add them to a few sweet ingredients found in the freezer, the results are delicious without ever needing the oven!
No one wants to be stuck in a hot kitchen when there is fun to be had. What I love about this dessert is how quick and easy it is to make. Honestly, it takes longer to go to the store for ingredients than it does to make!
I use the term “make” lightly of course, as this easy pound cake recipe is as simple as mixing together some instant pudding and milk, adding whipped topping and assembly.
It’s great for last minute parties or work events when you forgot to make a side to bring along.
As the pudding sets, slice your pound cake and some berries (I used strawberries and blueberries this time). You can use fresh or frozen berries. I always try to use fresh berries whenever possible.
This makes a great Memorial Day or July 4th dessert if you use the berries to make a flag decoration. Delicious and so festive.

Once you layer the pudding mixture, cake and fruit, add a quick crumb coat with the rest of the filling. Then frost with the remaining whipped topping for a crisp, white finish.
Top with berries in any design you choose, and enjoy!
