I love sweets, They are my weakness. No matter how healthy I eat, I will ALWAYS break for sweets. They are good for the soul. And when it's a holiday those extra calories don't count right? I say right.
Growing up, my favorite sweet has always been my Aunt Dede's famous pound cake. I'm not a big fan
of other pound cakes. There is something different about her recipe. It's moist and sweet on the inside and super crunchy on the outside. I'm the first one to sneakily take off the crunchy pieces. She makes it for every Thanksgiving and Christmas, always something I look forward to.
Recently I've started making them myself.
If you're looking for a great dessert to take to a 4th of July celebration start right here.
What dessert is more American than a good ole southern pound cake!
It's very simple to make, and with some added fruit and whip cream, it's a beautiful red, white, and blue dessert!
