Strawberries are one of those things that I have a real love/hate relationship with. I love them because they are delicious but I hate them because Â it seems like the day after I buy them, I find a moldy one down at the bottom of the container. I, of course, go nuts thinking WHAT IF THAT STRAWBERRY TOUCHED ALL THE OTHERS?! and end up throwing the whole thing out.
That happened last week.
This week I bought more strawberries. A lot of strawberries.
Whenever I overbuy strawberries, I start thinking about pound cakes or angel food cakes or anything that I could turn into strawberry shortcake. Because why eat plain strawberries when you can put them on cake and top them with whipped cream?!
This Lemon Poppy Seed Pound Cake was perfect for a shortcake-like dessert. Lemon and strawberry is an amazing combination and the poppy seeds added a fun texture with just a bit of nuttiness. I expected my kids to turn their noses up to it when they saw the “black spots” but they loved it!
