Whenever I think of pound cake with strawberries and cream I think of Easter and springtime. We always just called this dessert “strawberry shortcake” growing up, even though we make it with a yummy pound cake.
Have you ever heard where the name “pound cake” comes from? Back in the 18th Century, this cake was made using a pound of all the main ingredients! That means a pound of butter, a pound of sugar, a pound of flour, etc. Can you believe that?
It makes me wonder what an original pound cake tasted like!? Luckily things have changed quite a bit and you wont have to worry about a pound of butter hanging on your hips from this recipe!
