apple pound cake

Cream cheese pound cake made extra moist and sweet with chunks of apples.

One of the hardest parts for me when traveling a lot for work is being away from the kitchen, especially when it comes to baking. I love trying out new local spots for the places I visit and I love sampling sweet treats. But nothing really compares to making something special at home.

After being gone for what seems like forever, I needed to get into the kitchen. After the cookies from yesterday it seems a bit much to make pound cake too.  This recipe even made two loaves.  Overkill yes.

This pound cake has butter and sugar - everything a proper pound cake should include -  plus chunks of apples to give it a Fall spin. Seriously delicious.  One night we even grilled up some slices in butter and topped it with vanilla ice cream. It wasn't chocolate but even I couldn't deny it was good.
