I've Been a Bad, Bad Girl

I am on a dessert kick. The other day I made this rosewater pound cake. It's basically just a regular old pound cake recipe with a hand full of almonds and two or three teaspoons of rosewater tossed in. You can get rosewater at Middle Eastern markets. Mine cost about $2.50. They also sell orange blossom water, which is good in pound cake too. I should not that instead of vegetable shortening, I use a full pound of butter. I figure if I'm going to do something this wrong I might as well do it right.

I added some fresh strawberries bought earlier in the day from the strawberry patch and some fresh, homemade organic whipped cream and I was good to go.

  1. I think I just gained 5 pounds from reading about it! ;-) That looks good.... Mmmmmmm...... I completely agree with the pound of butter. Don't mess around with something as serious as homemade pound cake!
