If you haven’t already bought yourself a copy of Around My French Table, run out and get it right now so you can make this recipe!
This pound cake is our French Fridays with Dorie recipe this week and it has got to be the best pound cake in the world. In Around My French Table, Dorie mentions that it’s drier than the pound cake we’re used to in the US but I thought it was perfect. I happened to catch some strawberries on sale the day I made the cake and it made the best strawberry shortcake.
My favorite part of the cake is the brown sugar that is sprinkled on top before baking. I hated how it made the cake look on the top – it was just little dots of brown – but it added so much to the pound cake!
The recipe is definitely going to be my go-to when it comes to pound cakes from now on, but I’m definitely doubling the recipe next time around!
