SMS: Perfect Pound Cake


Just in case anyone was worried, I am alive. Busy but alive. We are enjoying being stateside, but it is so weird knowing that we are staying and that we aren't flying back to Germany in a couple weeks. There is so much to get used to and we aren't even in Texas yet. I know everything will fall into place, but it is all VERY weird!

We are leaving for California in the morning and will be there for 4 days. I am really excited about our trip but I am pretty sure Anya is even more excited. She wanted to make a construction paper chain to hang up counting down the days until we go to Disneyland. It should be a great trip!

Now let's get to the good stuff... SMS! This week's recipe choice was Perfect Pound Cake. I accidentally grabbed the 1/3 cup instead of the 1/4 cup, so I added a little extra flour than the cake called for. I think it made my cake a tad drier than it would've been, but it was still great. I took Melissa Murphy's suggestion and grilled the pound cake and topped it with grilled pineapple, vanilla ice cream, and, instead of butterscotch sauce, I topped it all with Nutella. :) Yum!!!!

Thanks to Michelle of Veggie Num Nums for hosting this week.

I can't believe you are already state side. I hope you guys have a great time in California. I miss you guys so much I think about you about every day. I am really enjoying being around family but I miss all of my "German" friends.
