Strawberry Easy Pound Cake Dessert

Thursday, September 29, 2016
Sometimes I think the most simplest recipes are the best. Grandma always made her own pound cake. This recipe is made with her cake and the dessert is easy and old fashioned but the taste is sublime.

The presentation that this cake sliced can make will wow your family and friends. It sure is loved at all my functions we have. Actually my kids always ask for this one.

Even though I make this with strawberries, you can use any fruits you like. There are family and friends who may not like strawberries. 

So build your own with a buffet of fruits. I like to separate fruits and have my guests pick their favorites. You can use peaches, raspberries, blackberries, peaches sliced, bananas, apples, cherries and much more!

Have a bowl of heavy whipped cream on the side and this can be a shortcake party!

Another great things about these cakes is they freeze well. Make them in cupcake tins and if your in the mood for a treat just use one at a time.

If you are a strawberry shortcake lover, this is a little different than the traditional biscuit style shortcake. If you would like that recipe
click here for Grandma's biscuit recipe.

Shortcake was found as far back as the 1500's in an English cookbook. The shortcake is typically made with flour, sugar, butter, eggs, cream and leavening agents.

Making the cake brought back many childhood memories of my grandmother. That old fashioned taste of her pound cake is etched in my mind.

The smell of vanilla while it's baking is one of the most mouth watering smells while cooking. I just love making her pound cake.

Should you be in a hurry the other alternative is to buy a ready made cake and this will be a semi homemade recipe.

Perfect for a summer dessert. If you want pure comfort desserts than try her biscuit recipe. With very few ingredients you will be well on your way to your new favorite dessert.
