Simple Pleasure: Pound Cake with Fruit Preserves

If you’re looking for the simplest way to eat your pound cake, I say: as brunch, with a cup of tea, and a little dollop of fruit preserves.

I mean, can you get any easier or more relaxing? Considering that pound cake stays for a few days, you can have it for breakfast or dessert for several days straight. I feel like it’s the perfect little bit of something sweet when you need it.

We don’t go through a lot of jelly or jam in our house, so when we do buy it, we buy nice stuff. We have two jars of Bonne Maman jams and fruit preserves in our house at all times– usually Orange Marmalade and Strawberry Preserves.

Because Bonne Maman is all natural, it gets a very soft consistency when you stir it up– it flows like a syrup with just a few stirs. I poured it over a 1″ slice of pound cake, and then topped it with a few teaspoons of powdered sugar. Paired with a strong-brewed Earl Grey, this is such a lovely way to start the day.

David thinks so, too. Normally, we try to have somewhat decadent brunches on the weekend– eggs and toast, with fruit and maybe even pancakes if we’re feeling super indulgent. But because this is so simple and easy to make, we can get a nice little bit of sweetness on a regular day.

What’s your easy, go-to weekday breakfast?
