I read your message so quickly, almost thought you were going to say you had three trees loaded wth 7-up
Callie, thank you. Pound cake & Peaches (or blueberries - & ice cream) sound soooo good. Couldn't resist sharing another heart-pounding (?) pound cake recipe I've had tucked away. (Have another for strawberry pound cake, if anyone would like to give it a try.)
Toasted Pound Cake with Mascarpone and Amaretto
Serving Size : 6
Giada De Laurentiis
Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 5 minutes
1 pound cake (10 3/4 ounce), cut crosswise into 12 slices
3/4 cup apricot preserves
3 tablespoons almond flavored liqueur (recommended: Amaretto)
2/3 cup mascarpone cheese
1/4 cup sliced almonds, toasted
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Place the pound cake slices on a large heavy baking sheet and toast in oven for 7 to 10 minutes until the slices turn golden brown. Alternatively, toast the pound cake slices in an electric toaster until golden.
Stir the apricot preserves and amaretto in a small bowl to blend. Place 1 cake slice atop each of 6 plates.
Spoon the mascarpone cheese atop the cake slices. Arrange the remaining cake slices offset atop the bottom cake slices. Spoon the apricot mixture over.
Sprinkle with the almonds and serve immediately.
