Here Comes the Bride

by Sara Daniel

I created this flavorful recipe in celebration of my new series One Night with the Bridal Party. This is the perfect dessert for a bridal shower or post-wedding brunch. It's also delicious with a cup of tea and a good book.

Pound Cake with Fresh Strawberries
1 cup butter, room temperature
1 cup sugar
4 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
¼ tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. baking powder
2 cups flour
Fresh Strawberries – sliced

Preheat oven to at 325° F.

Grease and flour a 9 X 5 loaf pan.

Beat butter with an electric mixer for 1 minute.

Add sugar to butter, a bit at a time, beating on medium/high for 5 minutes or until light and fluffy.

Add eggs one at a time, beating for one minute after each egg, and scraping the bowl. Add vanilla and beat for another minute.

Gradually add nutmeg, baking powder, and flour, beat on low/medium until just combined.

Pour into prepared pan. Bake 1 hour.

Cool and slice. Serve with fresh strawberries.

Here's a little about my One Night with the Bridal Party series.

Whether the one-night stand occurs a week before their scheduled wedding or seven years later, meet six couples for whom one night will turn a fairy tale wedding from a mistake into a happily ever after.

  1. Thanks for hosting me, Sloane. I love this recipe so much I just might have to make it again, like right now! Yum!

    1. You're welcome, Sara. I love your books and your baking.:)

  2. Hmmm....any way to take those pounds out of your pound cake, Sara? Wink. Best wishes for bestsellers, my friend.

  3. Strawberry season is one for the senses. I love the fragrance of fresh berries that please me even before they are popped into my mouth. The cake sounds delicious.
    Good luck on your release. <s

  4. Sharon, if I find a way, I'll share my secret! Emma, my grandparents had a strawberry patch on their farm, and I have wonderful memories of picking strawberries with my grandma. Yes, so many senses become engaged! My mouth is watering now! Thanks for stopping by and commenting.
