Rich, moist, and with a hint of vanilla, the mellow yet incredibly delicious flavor of pound cake makes it the perfect base for a long list of fresh and inventive toppings. Made with a generous amount of flour, butter, and sugar, this cake is known for its thick and dense texture, which makes it the ideal foundation for syrups and creamy toppings like ice cream and whip cream, to name a few.
At Ne-Mo’s Bakery, our golden poundcake slice is made with quality ingredients, which give it a satisfying, home-baked flavor. Each slice comes individually portioned and packaged; just add your toppings and an elegant garnish for an easy and convenient pre-made dessert that looks and tastes homemade. In celebration of National Pound Cake Day on March 4th, here are a few of our favorite ways to enjoy this classic dessert:
- Grilled Golden Pound Cake + Peaches with Ice Cream
When pound cake is slightly toasted on the grill, it brings out its buttery richness while also giving you that fresh-out-of-the-oven experience. The grilled peaches are then enhanced with sugar and spices to bring out all the fruity flavors. Simply top with a scoop of ice cream and get ready to enjoy a world-class dessert that can be put together in minutes!
- Golden Poundcake + Crunchy Streusel Topping
A crunchy streusel topping is easy to make and can easily transform a basic pound cake slice into a homemade dessert that tastes like classic coffee cake with a fruity twist. For this delicious and mouth-watering dessert, just toss together toasted oats, butter, flour, and brown sugar. Then crumble the mixture onto the top of the golden pound cake slice and garnish with fresh raspberries. Enjoy it with coffee for a special breakfast or brunch treat or as an after-dinner dessert course that can be assembled in a snap.
- Multi-layered Golden Pound Cake + Strawberries and Cream
The presentation is impressive with this classic dessert yet it’s surprisingly easy to put together. Simply slice your pound cake into four pieces and then place one piece on the bottom of a parfait glass followed by strawberries in a sugar syrup, and then a dollop of whipped cream. Repeat these steps three more times with the remaining pound cake pieces and finish with a dollop of whipped cream and cherry on top.
- Golden Pound Cake Ice Cream Sandwich
In this poundcake creation, the creaminess of ice cream is merged with the fruity and buttery flavors of classic strawberry shortcake. For an easy to make ice cream sandwich, make the most of the delicate poundcake flavors and texture by toasting each slice first. Then spread your favorite ice cream or frozen yogurt evenly between two slices; we recommend strawberry flavor, which pairs perfectly with pound cake and its hint of vanilla. Place in the freezer to enjoy later or eat right away before the ice cream melts.
- Golden Pound Cake + Blueberries with Honey and Toasted Coconut
In this recipe, pound cake gets a healthy kick with antioxidant-rich blueberries and honey, a natural sweetener. The toasted coconut flakes add a touch of protein and the warm flavors of the tropics. Simply place a slice of golden pound cake on a dish and top with fresh blueberries. Next, drizzle with honey and sprinkle with toasted coconut flakes for the final touch.
- Golden Pound Cake Vienna Whirl with Buttercream and Jam
Featured on The Great British Baking Show, the Vienna Swirl is a British sandwich biscuit made with butter shortbread cookies and a rich filling of buttercream and jam. In this version, golden pound cake slices make for a rich and buttery base that holds its own against an ultra-decadent cream filling. A basic and versatile frosting, buttercream is a simple combination of butter, heavy cream, powdered sugar, and salt. You can also add a brightness to your buttercream with fresh lemon juice and zest.
- Golden Pound Cake + Pudding and Bananas
Another simple yet elegant dessert in a glass, slices of golden pound cake are layered with cold pudding and bananas. Top it with a dollop of whip cream and a sprig of mint as garnish. For this pound cake dessert, any fruit can be used such as strawberries, raspberries, or blueberries. You also have the option of drizzling it with chocolate syrup for a touch of rich decadence.
