Are you looking for a cold, refreshing and comforting dessert? These pound cake sandwiches will not disappoint! Sweet, Creamy, delicious sherbet nestled between two hunkin slices of pound cake make for a very delicious dessert. And its colorful and summery. During these warm months, my ice cream maker is always on overdrive as I whip up homemade ice creams, sorbets and sherbets. I was pressed for time so I made the homemade pound cake and used store bought sherbet. If you want to save time or just don't feel like baking a cake, you can use a store bought loaf pound cake and sherbet.

Pound Cake Sandwiches
1 cup unsalted butter
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups granulated sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
5 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 cups sifted all purpose flour (sift 3 times before you measure it)
1 cup whipping cream
Butter and flour or use nonstick spray on 2 9x5 loaf baking pans and set aside.
Cream butter and sugar with an electric mixer until light and fluffly (approximately 4-5 minutes).
Stop once or twice to scrape down batter from sides of bowl and then add eggs one at a time beating slowly after each additon. Add one third of the flower mixture at low speed and add half the whipping cream. continue alternating flour and whipping cream and end with flour. Add vanilla and mix to combine. With rubber spatula scape down sides until completely mixed pour into loaf pans 2/3 full.
This cake does nor require a preheated oven. Put cake in unheated oven at 325 for approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Oven times vary, so check at the 50 minute point. Depending on which oven I use, this cake gets done in under 1 hour, but in an oven that may not get as hot,it might take the whole 1 hour and 15 minutes.
It is scorching outside and I would love nothing more than for you to join me for pound cake sandwiches by my pool. How does that sound?
|Me and my mini me are having this for dessert. Life is Sweet!|
