Nestle has been sweetening up glasses of milk -- chocolate or strawberry -- for decades. Strawberry Nesquik can add a touch of berry sweetness to more than just a glass of 2 per cent. Several recipes -- from cake to hot chocolate -- incorporate this ingredient.
Neapolitan Pound Cake
This tricolour treat will bring a visually appealing spin to dessert. Beat 227gr. of cream cheese (thawed to room temperature) with four large eggs until smooth. Beat in one 517gr package of white cake mix alternately with 3/4 cup of milk. Beat on high for two minutes. Set aside 2 cups of this batter and stir in 3/4 cup of Nesquik chocolate-flavoured powder. Set aside another 2 cups of cake batter and stir in 3/4 cups of Nesquik strawberry-flavoured powder. In a greased and floured 10-inch, 12-cup fluted tube pan, spoon in the strawberry cake batter. Tap pan on counter lightly to level the batter. Spoon the white batter over top, then add the chocolate cake batter. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 55 to 65 minutes. Cool in pan on wire rack for 45 minutes. Loosen from pan and sprinkle with icing sugar.
