My family really enjoys a simple cake to have with their evening cup of tea. Even more so when we have time to spend together. With Thanksgiving around the corner I made a lovely Strawberry Swirl Pound Cake just for our tea. I’m a little concerned though, perhaps I should’ve made two!
I’ve experimented quite a bit to find what I consider a great pound cake, here’s the rules I stick to:
Use cake flour instead of all-purpose flour. You’ll get a much lighter cake.
The swirl in this Strawberry Swirl Pound Cake is a preserve made with fresh strawberries, orange juice and zest, light brown sugar, water and Saba. If you don’t have Saba you can simply leave it out, but I highly suggest you get some soon. Saba is a wonderful addition to fruit, fruit sauces, fruit salads, salad dressings and much more. Go online and buy some soon.
Only a small amount of preserve is needed for the cake, the rest can be served on the side with ice cream. This combo is a great movie night treat for you and your partner, or after dinner treat for the kids.
