Description

Beautiful buttery-golden pound cake, faintly flavored with vanilla and almond, is the perfect dessert, especially when topped with rose-scented strawberry sauce.

Ingredients

  • FOR THE POUND CAKE:
  • ½ pounds Unsalted Butter, At Room Temperature
  • 2 teaspoons Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 teaspoon Pure Almond Extract (or Use An Additional 1 Teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract)
  • 1 cup Sugar, Plus 2 Tablespoons
  • 4  Large Eggs
  • 1  Large Egg Yolk
  • 1-¾ cup All-purpose Flour
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • Butter, To Grease The Pan
  • FOR THE STRAWBERRY SAUCE:
  • 3 cups Sliced Strawberries
  • 3 Tablespoons Sugar
  • ½ teaspoons Rosewater

Preparation

1. For the cake: Preheat oven to 325 F. Grease a 9 by 5-inch loaf pan (preferably a glass pan) with butter and line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper.
2. Use a handheld electric mixer to beat the butter and extracts together in a large bowl. Cream in the sugar. Add the eggs and the yolk one at a time, beating until fully incorporated and fluffy before adding another. Once the eggs are added, beat until the mixture is light and fluffy. Add the flour and salt and use a wooden spoon to stir just until combined, being careful not to over-mix.
3. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and put it into the oven. Bake until the loaf is golden on all sides, split on top, and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with just a couple crumbs (not completely dry), about 1 hour 15 minutes. The sauce needs to sit in the refrigerator for an hour so you can make it at this time if desired (instructions below).
4. Remove pan from oven and set it on a rack. Cool cake for 20 minutes in the pan, and then run a knife along the perimeter and slide the loaf out. Transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely before slicing.
5. For the strawberry sauce, combine all ingredients in a medium sized bowl and let them sit for an hour in the fridge.
6. Serve each slice of pound cake topped with strawberry sauce, and of course you can also add a dollop of whipped cream if you like.
