A loaf pound cake made with fresh strawberries, white chocolate chips and sliced almonds.

 

Last week, I went strawberry picking for the first time.  Now why it took me so long to do this, I don’t know.  Maybe it’s because I thought I had to drive quite a distance to do this and would buy them at the grocery store or farmers’ market instead.

We’re smack in the middle of strawberry season around here and I had an inkling to go somewhere to pick my own.  I searched online for u-pick farms and was happy to find one about 30 minutes away.  Off I went on my little adventure.   The lady at the farm gave me a box and I went up and down the rows collecting my strawberries.  They smelled sooo good y’all.  I couldn’t wait to get home and pop a few in my mouth.  There’s nothing like fresh-picked strawberries!  You can bet I’ll be going back before the season is over for more.

 

 

With fresh strawberries in the house, I had a craving for pound cake…with strawberries inside, not on top.  I found a few recipes on Pinterest, but none were quite like I wanted; so I decided to tweak one to my liking.  That’s me alright…always tweaking recipes.  Can I tell you how good this was?  I was slicing into this cake before it cooled off!  Go ahead and give it a whirl when you have some fresh strawberries on hand.  You’ll be glad you did.

 

 

This cake is very moist.  Make sure to store leftovers in the refrigerator.
