Vendredi Pound Cake


Vendredi Pound Cake 

Today is Pancake Day but what I really wanted was a comforting, thick slice of freshly baked pound cake, the kind of piece that would fulfill my need for the hugging cozy factor on this February afternoon. Butter, sugar, eggs and flour. The basics of a really dense ‘pound’. I took the liberty of changing things up slightly. Vanilla doubled. Buttermilk instead of milk and a tangy lemon drizzle on one. This recipe makes 1 large bundt or 2 loaves. 

Sidenote: For excessive decadence slice and fry as French Toast! Use this pound cake instead of bread.
While others eat pancakes. Eat ‘Vendredi Toast’ Oooh La La.
Maple syrup please!

P.S. I love those outer browned-up-good outside cuts - Do you? Hope not.
