Description

This pound cake is made in a mini loaf pan for two servings. The strawberries marinated in Frangelico are the perfect accompaniment!

Ingredients

  • FOR THE POUND CAKE:
  • 3 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter
  • 1 ounce, weight Cream Cheese
  • ½ cups Sugar
  • 1 whole Large Egg
  • ½ teaspoons Vanilla
  • ⅛ teaspoons Baking Powder
  • ½ cups Unbleached Flour
  • _____
  • FOR THE STRAWBERRIES:
  • 10 whole Strawberries, Or As Many As You Like
  • 1 teaspoon Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Frangelico Or Lemon Juice

Preparation

Before baking a pound cake, I recommend setting out all ingredients on the counter and allowing them to come to room temperature.

Butter a 5 ¾” x 3″ x 2″ mini loaf pan. Preheat the oven to 350°.

In a medium bowl, beat together the butter, cream cheese and sugar with an electric mixer. Beat very well (about 3-5 minutes) until the sugar is fully incorporated and the mixture is pale yellow and fluffy. Next, add the egg and vanilla and continue beating. Add the baking powder and half of the flour. Add the remaining flour and mix just until combined. Scrape batter into the loaf pan and bake on a cookie sheet for 42-45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Before you plan to serve the pound cake, mix the strawberries, sugar and lemon juice or Frangelico and let macerate for 30 minutes. Serve fat slices of the pound cake with juicy strawberries. Garnish with whipped cream if desired.

This dessert was awesome. The cream cheese added such a nice flavor to the pound cake. Summer’s coming and I’m going to end up fat from your dessert recipes! :)
