Honey Vanilla Pound Cake – This decadent loaf is made with real butter, vanilla almond milk and a hint of honey. Topped with a delicious rich honey vanilla glaze.
So this recipe is a first around here. I’ve never posted a pound cake before. And I figured I’d start if off strong with a delicious one. This rich pound cake is made with everything you’d expect in a traditional pound cake…butter, eggs, sugar, flour. But what makes this one is different is the honey and vanilla. Oh yum.
It’s made with a bit of Almond Breeze and then topped with a honey vanilla glaze. I really think you’ll like this fresh twist on a classic cake.
I saved myself a few calories when I made this. I let my husband eat 87% the kids 6% and I had the rest. That way I can have my cake, eat too and not gain 5 lbs in one week. Winner for all!
Look at this dripping honey though. Oh my goodness I can’t wait to think of something else this week to drizzle honey on. It’s just so pretty.
Of course you could be boring and not drizzle the added honey and it’s still pretty. And the vanilla can shine through. I’m a bit of a vanilla freak lately too. Here’s more. And one more. And just one more. I’ll probably be adding several more through out the year because vanilla is a delicious year round flavor that I just can’t resist.
It’s pretty awesome too. Because I used to be fixated on chocolate 24/7 but now that I’ve let vanilla in my life I’m not letting it get away. It’s deserves it’s own showcase and praise. So versatile; from breakfast to dessert to main dishes. It’s mah-velous!
