Instead, I made the Perfection Pound Cake. Here it is just after it came out of the oven:
Mmmm. It's golden brown on the outside and it smells heavenly. Here it is all wrapped up so it can "ripen" as Dorie recommends.
Now, tonight it will be sliced into slabs and covered with fresh strawberries macerated in a little sugar and an alcohol to be named later. I will also put just a dollop of whipped cream on top. I will not, however, have pictures. It might be a little hard to explain to our hosts why it is I'm whipping out my camera and stopping everyone from enjoying the goodness.
Never fear, though. Next week I will be right back in the saddle. The chosen recipe is Mixed Berry Cobbler. YUM! Thank you to Beth of Our Sweet Life for choosing the yummyness.
