Happy National Pound Cake Day!!!
I have to begin by saying I LOVE Pound Cake… who am I kidding? I pretty much love ALL cake, but I’ve come to love pound cake, in particular, over the past few years. It is always so delicious and soft!
Not sure if you remember but last year I celebrated National Pound Cake Day with Sara Lee and made Pound Cake French Toast. It is the BEST! We’ve had it a few times since then and every time I do have it I’m reminded again just how delicious and versatile this yummy treat can be.
To celebrate today, I wanted to share a new recipe that I tried out this weekend. Let me begin by saying it may be one of the BEST desserts I’ve ever made. It was so stinkin’ delicious and was gone in a matter of seconds… Snickerdoodle Pound Cake a la Mode with White Chocolate Sauce. Yes, you heard me right… a ton of delicious flavors all wrapped up in this yummy treat! I’ve always been a huge fan of warm and cold treats served together (brownies and ice cream, cobbler and ice cream, etc.) and wanted to do the same thing with this pound cake. The result was AHHH-MAZING!! No joke! The best part was that it was super easy to make and tasted like it came straight from a restaurant!!
If you’d like to try this delicious recipe as well, here it is…

- Once pound cakes are done and while still warm. Add a scoop of ice cream.

The combination of the pound cake, cinnamon and sugar, ice cream and white chocolate sauce make this dessert irresistible!
