Getting Ready for the Holidays
Just in time for the holidays, never too early to plan ahead. Here’s an idea for a wonderful dessert on your next family or friends gathering.
The pound cake is a dessert tradition for many families the world over, and for good reason. Traditionally made of one pound of each of the following ingredients: flour, butter, eggs and sugar, it is simply heaven to bake and to serve.
You can make your pound cake even more interesting for your guests by serving it with dessert sauces such as creme anglaise, Dulce de Leche or even a scoop of your favourite ice cream! Berries are a tasty and healthy addition, as well. This way, everyone gets to “dress” their own dessert to their own liking.
In case you’d like the recipe for pound cake, I’ve adapted it from Ana Olson (love her). The original recipe is lemon pound cake, I just omitted the lemon, so it basically is Butter Pound cake. If you’d like the original recipe, you can find it here.
