Fried Poundcake Salted Caramel Sundae

August 10, 2015

So, let's just say that at some point last week, I may or may not have turned one year older.

I also may or may not have had company over for dinner, obviously not to celebrate or anything ridiculous like that, but you know, just to eat food and stuff.

If I were to have put myself through such an excruciating birthday-ish experience, I would have needed to have some sort of desert ready. A desert that had absolutely no room for any type of writing or candle placement but could satisfy a sweet tooth and pair well with cheap wine.

Allow me to introduce you to my Fried Pound Cake Salted Caramel Sundae

Yeah, your heard me. 

 I fried a Sara Lee All Butter Pound Cake, smothered it in caramel sauce, Breyers Salted Caramel Ice Cream, real whipped cream and a champagne covered strawberry.

But just to be clear, it wasn't a birthday cake (those are terrifying), it was simply a delicious desert for my friends and family. 
Got it?
 Ok, good. 
P.S. If you have absolutely no idea what I'm talking about, check out Friday's post 

Anyway, you need this desert in your life.
And it's so easy, you could honestly make it in a single serving for a night in or for a special occasion (if you're that kind of girl, I guess).

Here's what you'll need:

Sara Lee All Butter Pound Cake (in the freezer section)
Breyers Salted Caramel Ice Cream
Caramel Sauce
Whipped Cream
optional: a gorgeous, sparkly strawberry
I snagged everything that I needed at Publix but the Champagne Covered Strawberry was part of a "sorry you ate it in the front yard" care package and deserved a spot of honor in my sundae. 

Slice pound cake
throw a little butter or margarine into a small pan
let it melt 
toss the pound cake in the pan
let it toast up to a golden color - maybe two minutes a side
keep an eye on it so it doesn't burn 

Top with ice cream, caramel sauce and whipped cream while the cake is still warm 

And go to town.

It will be all melty and gooey and happy and you should probably just roll around in it and call it a day.

Now, go forth and make fried pound cake.
