Snickerdoodle Pound Cake a la Mode

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!!

Looks pretty fab, right?! The bottom pound cake layer had a crunch outside and was covered in cinnamon and sugar. Ice cream is in the middle and the top was covered in a homemade White Chocolate Sauce with white chocolate curls. Yes… you can begin to drool now! ;)

If you’d like to try this delicious recipe as well, here it is…

    My favorite pound cake recipe is one I found on an Imperial Margarine label several years ago. It is a lemon pound cake recipe. I make it with butter now and it comes out so perfectly delicious!
