My Fourth of July didn’t go according to plan, so we wound up with store-bought dessert (ugh!), but I’d already bought all the ingredients to bake the cake… Of course I had to find some time to get this done and Sunday afternoon seemed like a good enough reason as any to bake a cake.
Last night we attempted to have a family movie night, but The Secret Life of Pets was sold out and we’ve seen everything on Redbox, which led us to pick up individual dinners and ice cream options from Harris Teeter. I can never make a decision (especially when I’m tired and cranky), so I eventually chose the mini Ben & Jerry’s Strawberry Shortcake and purposely waited until today to eat it with my pound cake (even though I think I might wait until tomorrow; the cake is always better the second day).
This is a quick and easy recipe that is pretty foolproof and damn delicious!
