Recipe Notes

Test Kitchen Tips

  • To remove cakes easily, use solid shortening to grease plain and fluted tube pans.
  • For a three-ingredient dessert, grill sliced pound cake and serve with whipped cream and your favorite fruit curd or berry sauce. Or sandwich mini marshmallows and chocolate chips between frozen waffles; wrap in foil and grill.
