When the Sara Lee Corporation contacted me about creating
a recipe for them and offered me a giveaway for my
readers, I decided I wanted to make it fun and see
what you would create with a Sara Lee Poundcake.
So many, many wonderful ideas.
Berry Tiramisu with French Cream
Stuffed French Toast
Easter Egg Cakes
Lavender Pistachio Cakes
and many more....
What wonderful ideas. I hope you get some Sara Lee
Poundcake and create some run recipes for yourself.
Some of them brought back memories.
One of our favorite restaurants to go to when we
went home to Madison, Wisconsin was Ella's Deli.
You can see right here in the middle of their menu
board Grilled Pound Cake Hot Fudge Sundae.
It is a magical place where you are greeted by
this beautiful carousel outside and an unimaginable
collection of whimsical animated toys filling the
deli. So everyone's suggestions for grilled pound
cake tugged at my heart strings.
Another one that brought back memories of
younger years was Sue's suggestion (from I Need Mom)
that you line your cheesecake pan with the pound cake.
Unfortunately I don't have the recipe, but one of the
first cheesecakes I made was a concoction my mom
and I created after I had blown a cake recipe. The cake
turned out flat as a pancake and she suggested we top it
with a cheesecake layer. The combination of the two
were amazing. For sentimental reasons, and because
I want Sue's recipe, I am choosing Sue as the
$50 Visa card winner.
Sue, email me your recipe and I will make it and
feature it on my blog.
Maple and Banana Layered dessert
(from More Fun, Less Laundry)
sounds so great that I am awarding her a $50 Visa
Contact me by email and give me your emails so
I can send these out to you.
Thanks everyone. I had almost 500 page views
on this contest.
