I love a simple dessert, don't you? Just a basic pound cake sliced and topped with a little whipped cream and fresh strawberries can be mood changing! LOL!
Pound Cake with Whipped Cream and Strawberries
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, room temperature
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
4 large eggs
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 9 x 5 loaf pan and then line with parchment paper. Leave a little paper on each end to use for lifting cake later.
Mix butter and sugar until light and fluffy using a hand or stand mixer. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Next add the vanilla and salt. With mixer on low, gradually add flour, beating just until combined. Do not over-mix.
Bake for about 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center of cake comes out clean. Let cool in pan 15 minutes. Invert onto a wire rack, and turn upright to cool completely.
Slice when cool and top with whipped cream and fresh strawberries and for a real treat drizzle a little strawberry or chocolate syrup on top!
