Toasted Pound Cake

My girlfriend has today off which means I'm thoroughly booked, but here's a quickie for you guys. Looks good, huh? Couldn't be easier either, here's what you do.

Heat up a nonstick skillet to medium-high. Melt a little butter in it and plop down a nice thick piece of pound cake. Let it sit for a minute or two and then flip it, with a little more butter if you need some, and let it toast on the other side. Now put it on a plate with some ice cream and eat it. The outside gets crispy like a grilled cheese and the inside is warm, super soft and almost gooey. Yeah, that's the stuff. Elegant and fancy? Not really. Wicked fricking awesome? Hell yeah. In fact, it's my new favorite way to eat pound cake, it's even better than just eating a slice out of hand. I wish I had gotten an interior shot for you guys, but once the fork goes in there's no stopping until it's gone.

I love toasted poundcake but have always made it in the oven. Never thought of using a skillet, but I love that idea. Yeah, I'm happily booked up with family too, for a couple of days.

LOL...when I saw the word "toasted" I immediately thought, "coconut!" But I guess it doesn't need it--sounds delicious!

That is just about the most awesome thing I have seen! If I had a fork in my hand right now, there would be a whole in my computer screen.

there's clearly not enough butter already involved in pound cake; the slathering of extra is definitely needed. wicked fricking awesome indeed. :)
