Happy National Pound Cake Day!
…wait, what? You didn’t know it was National Pound Cake Day? You weren’t even planning on celebrating with any sort of pound cake today? What are you going to tell me next—that you didn’t even put up your pound cake tree or hang your pound cake stockings? But surely you were going to sing a few pound cake carols…right? No? For heaven’s sake. You are so lucky you have me in your life to remind you of these important holidays!
Okay, real talk. It’s possible that National Pound Cake Day is not a legitimate, nationally recognized holiday. (Yet.) But as we all know, I’m a sucker for food-themed days—any excuse to make a special dessert is okay by me. So when Sara Lee Desserts contacted me and asked if I would create a recipe using their pound cakes for the soon-to-be-globally-recognized National Pound Cake Day, I said heck yes! (And don’t worry, there’s a little something in it for you too—check the giveaway at the bottom of the post!)
