You know what I love about pound cake? It’s unpretentious. It’s simple. It’s easy to make and just as easy to eat. You can freeze it in individually wrapped slices and when at 1am you have a craving for something sweet, just throw that bad boy int he microwave for 30 seconds and you’ve got yourself a treat. You can flavor it with almost anything that your little heart desires. Or you can make it plain and slather it, drizzle it, brush it, layer it. Make Ice Cream Pound Cake Sandwiches or a Berry Pound Cake Trifle. You get my drift right? I love pound cake in more ways than one.
Thus, when I received an assortment of Honey Ridge Farms Honey Cremes, I knew I’d make pound cake. Using the Apricot Honey Creme and a starting recipe from Camilla Salisbury’s book, Piece of Cake, these gorgeous Honey Apricot Pound Cakes came to life. The Apricot Honey Creme was sweet but with fruit undertones of the apricot, which made it unlike any other honey product I’ve ever tried. All natural ingredients such as USA Grade A clover honey and apricots, the cremes are never heated filtered, which makes sure you get all the health benefits inside!
