I don’t know about you guys, but I love pound cake! We would buy it from the store then stick it in the freezer. (I don’t know…I guess we just like to eat it that way.) 🙂 Usually, we’d just eat the pound cake by itself because it was already yummy originally. However, on some days (which is probably all the time haha), I crave for something sweeter so I’d try to find things to make the dessert even better. I would think of things that pair well with each other for a dessert, and the first thing that would pop into my head is strawberries, bananas, and chocolate. They’re one of my favorite things to pair together. ❤ Think of the pound cake layered with strawberries, bananas, and nutella. Ooooh and maybe some ice cream too! ~yuuuum~ Perfection right there guys. This is a great dessert if you just want something easy and simple to make. Whenever I just want to change up something simple, such as pound cake, I usually go for the fruit and chocolate combo. What about you guys? Do you have a dessert that you like to change up in some way to satisfy your sweet tooth?
Recently, in class, we’ve been reading The Count of Monte Cristo, and I think the story plot is pretty interesting. In the story, the main character has multiple personalities and disguises. The different disguises mask his true identity, and what he portrays on the outside is different from what he thinks on the inside. It’s like what they all say: Don’t judge a book by its cover.
These treats reminded me about the main character in The Count of Monte Cristo. They’re dessert in disguises. 🙂
In English class, we are currently reading A Tale of Two Cities. After reading the first chapter, my class had a detailed discussion about what the chapter title (“The Period”) emphasized. We were basically picking the whole thing apart. One suggestion came up, and it was that the title talked about a time of change. Life is always changing, either for “the best of times” or “the worst of times.” During the Age of Discovery, the world was progressing to make a change. This leads to how new desserts are constantly being created and reinvented even if they become the best ones or the worst. The process won’t stop, and the recipes it leaves behind will be kept and improved on for ages.
