* * * *   23 ratings

  • Prep Time:
    60 min


  • 1 (16 ounces) package Sara Lee® Frozen Pound Cake, thawed
  • 1 1/2 cup whipping cream, divided
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 5 teaspoons instant espresso powder, divided
  • 1/4 cup superfine granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 tablespoons English toffee bits, divided


  1. Cut pound cake lengthwise into 3 layers. Set aside.
  2. Place chocolate chips in a medium bowl. Bring 1/2 cup of the whipping cream just to a boil in a small saucepan. Remove from heat and pour over chocolate chips; let stand 3 minutes.  Add 2 teaspoons of the espresso powder; whisk until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth. Cool 15 minutes.
  3. Place remaining 1 cup whipping cream, sugar, remaining 3 teaspoons espresso powder and vanilla into a chilled mixing bowl; beat until stiff peaks form.  Cover bowl and refrigerate until needed.
  4. To assemble cake, place bottom layer of cake onto a serving plate. Spread with 1/3 of the cream filling and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of the toffee bits. Repeat 2 times.
  5. Drizzle ganache mixture over cake. Sprinkle with remaining 1 tablespoon toffee bits, if desired. Freeze for 30 minutes or until chocolate sets. Cut into slices to serve. Store wrapped in the freezer.

  1. I cook and bake a lot and I am confused by your recipes. What does for example 1/4 133 mean? It’s the 133 I don’t understand. Thank you.

  2. Hi Debra,

    Those weird numbers were the result of a website glitch; we apologize for any confusion! The recipe has been updated. Thanks!

  3. Hi Amber,

  4. Hello,
    Where are your selections of Frozen Desserts, as in cakes?

    I do wish also that you would make Orange Cakes with Orange Frosting and have it in your frozen Dessert Section at the stores.
    PLEASE 😉
