Recently I discovered the joy of baking.
Most recent attempt: brown sugar pound cake. The recipe I followed didn’t come from my mom, or her mom, or anyone’s mom for that matter. It came from the back of a cardboard box.
As a self-respecting Southerner I should probably be ashamed to admit that. But as a new baker, forging new traditions in a new place, the recipe on the back of a Domino Light Brown Sugar box suited me just fine.
I followed this recipe to a T and it was delicious. What made it even better? An overnight stay in the fridge — covered, of course — and then sliced thick with a dollop of whipped cream and a generous portion of strawberries.
Have another toppings suggestion, or another pound cake recipe to try?
Send them this way!
