Not too long ago, I was at a friends house and we had a really unexpected treat (well, for winter anyway):
It reminded me of summer and was incredibly good, but that's probably because strawberry shortcake is one of those “perfect” desserts. Not too sweet, not too savory. Light, but still filling. Great balance of flavors.
It's a classic for a reason.
But this version was TOTALLY not on plan……
So I decided I needed to create a pound cake that WAS on plan. And since you can have some berries with an S meal, this totally works!
Now, I don't always recommend having strawberry shortcake during the winter (hello, trucked-in berries) but with spring right around the corner, now is a great time to bake a couple of these, slice them, and then freeze them for a quick dessert that requires no baking!
