SMS Perfect Pound Cake.....

Many thanks to Michelle of Veggie Num Nums for our recipe of the week, Perfect Pound Cake! Check out Michelle's blog for the recipe!!! This was the perfect recipe to finally use my shortcake pan that I just had to have; and of course had not used until this weekend!

The recipe worked great in this pan and as usual I over filled the pan, but I just cut off the cute domed tops and ate them by themselves, LOL. I think I could have had 10 to 12 shortcakes if I had filled the pan properly.
Couldn't decide what to fill the short cakes with.........

thinking, thinking, thinking,....fresh berries with whipped cream, yummy..........

thinking, thinking, thinking,....oh, I know, coffee ice cream with Kahlua sauce.......

thinking, thinking, thinking,....fill the top with lemon curd and clotted cream.......

Well, just plain with a cup of tea, worked for me; at least there are five more to think about!!!

YOU were thinking so much you just ate the whole thing plain..lol:0) Sometimes less is more! I ended up adding some choke cherry jam on top and it helped cut back the dry taste some. I love your little minis..so nice!

I love the progression shots, glad you enjoyed it! That pan is great; I'm a little embarrassed about how many pans I've absolutely had to have, my boyfriend has stopped believing me when I say I will use them all the time.

Oh they look so cute! I love that pan. They would look utterly adorable filled with a berry compote - then it definitely counts as one of your 5 a day, right??! x
