If you love berries, you will fall in love with this compote.  It is amazing drizzled on everything.  My favorite ways to eat this berry compote is over shortcake, angel food cake, ice cream, pound cake, and even pancakes and waffles.  To take these desserts up to an even higher level, try adding some White Chocolate Ganache drizzled over the Compote on them.  I added both the berry compote and the white chocolate ganache recipe below.

Top Secret for your ears only!

If you do not have time to make a homemade dessert, no problem!  Simply purchase a store-bought a pound cake, angel food cake and more and topped it off with this compote and white chocolate ganache.  Everyone will think you make the entire dessert from scratch.

My family’s favorite cake is Caleb’s Comfort Pound Cake.  Caleb is my special needs son who has cerebral palsy, seizures and has had 17 brain surgeries.  I started baking with him before he could walk.  Baking was a fun activity to help Caleb with his memory.  He is now 18 years old, and he has baked a lot of pound cakes including the one below.  You can read about Caleb’s story here.  Caleb’s Pecan Pound Cake.
