Who doesn’t love a good, moist pound cake? And this one may be one of our favorites yet. For a “fast and fun dinner party dessert,” De Laurentiis recommends nabbing a store-bought pound cake to dress up with her limoncello zabaglione and berry recipes.

To achieve berry-filled goodness, you need to separate the ingredients you need for the berries and the Limoncello Zabaglione. For the berries, grab a few ingredients, like mixed berries and lemon juice. For the Limoncello Zabaglione, get ingredients like limoncello, sugar, and lemon zest, to name a few.

You start by mixing a bunch of ingredients in a bowl and within no time, you’ll be cooling it to room temperature so you can serve it.

What’s super cool is that De Laurentiis featured this recipe on Giada in Italy, specifically “Episode 12: The Sweet Spot.”
