Toasted Honey Butter Pound Cake + Strawberry Compote

by - 12:08 PM

I adapted this recipe from Giada de Laurentiis' recipe and only used her toasted pound cake. Then we used a simple recipe for strawberry compote. We sliced the strawberries and added about a cup of sugar. Then we cooked it slowly over the stove top for about 8 minutes until the sugar melted and the sauce thickened. We composed this dessert as a simple strawberry shortcake. With extra whipped cream!


Pound Cake:

  • Vegetable cooking spray
  • 1 (10.75-ounce) frozen pound cake, thawed and cut into 9 (1-inch) slices
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup honey, for drizzling


For the pound cake: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a baking pan with cooking spray. Arrange the pound cake in a single layer on the prepared pan. Brush with the melted butter and drizzle with honey. Bake for 7 to 8 minutes or until lightly golden. Set aside to cool for 10 minutes.
