Being on the shortbread cookie journey has been a fantastic ride, but today I felt like baking a cake! Honestly, I haven’t baked a cake in probably 6 or 7 years, but today that’s all I wanted to do. So, I called my mom (the pound cake queen).
I had my own recipe in mind, but a pound cake is a pound cake with the usual and similar main ingredients that I use in my shortbread cookies. My mom is dedicated to and swears by cake flour (which I didn’t have and didn’t want to buy), but I did take her advice on her ratios for flour/sugar/butter, and (since I am my mother’s child) I added my own components and the rest was on me.
As I was putting it all together, it started coming back to me, and I remembered that I liked making pound cake. I wrote down my measurements (as usual) and what I ended up with was an Almond Pound Cake with a Lime Drizzle.
My son and I shared a piece of the pound cake. It was delicious (per my pickier than anyone son, and he’s not afraid to hurt my feelings). Maybe I’ll add it to my list of options, but what will I do with the rest of the cake now that my craving is satisfied? Hmmmmmm.
