Perfection Pound Cake

fetta di torta/piece of cake

Happy Secret Recipe Club reveal Monday! It’s good to be back again for another month.  Margaret’s Tea and Scones blog was the focus of my “research” this month. She is very active in blogging groups, so you have probably come across her food aventures if you follow Bundt Bakers, Donna Hay Wednesdays, French Fridays with Dorie, I Heart Cooking Clubs, Magazine Mondays Modern Baker Challenge, My Kitchen, My World, or  Tuesdays with Dorie. Good stuff! And, there were plenty of recipes from which to choose.

I went back and forth, trying to choose between the Äppelkaka, Cinnamon Scented Chocolate Mousse Cake, and Lamingtons. When push came to shove, after getting back home from several business trips, I realized I had to go with a recipe with “readily available ingredients”. Since I didn’t have apples for the Äppelkaka, have yet to unpack my Modern Baker for the Cinnamon Scented Chocolate Mousse Cake, and used up all the coconut needed to Lamingtons on macaroons, I was back to square one.  Then, it hit me.  Pound cake!  How can you go wrong with Dorie pound cake?  You can’t.

I added Heath bits to this pound cake since I was bringing it to my niece and nephew.  A little toffee makes for happy middle schoolers.

Glad you enjoyed the pound cake. It is quite good. What a good idea to add the Heath bits. The cake is very adaptable. Come back any time. 😉

I cannot remember the last time I made pound cake…it was probably back in culinary school. It definitely never looked as good as this, that’s for sure!

Oooh, all the recipes you mentioned from Margaret’s blog sound divine and who could resiste a perfect pound cake (esp. with fresh strawberries on top?)

Pound is SO perfect for berry season—-But additional add a sauce and ice cream—or just eat it plain. Soooo many options, so little time.
