March 4th is National Pound Cake Day and we’ve already started celebrating at our house. Now, March 4th may seem like it is forever away but time travels so quickly it will be here before you know it. In order to celebrate it properly, I felt we should show you how it’s done. First, you need to get your hands on some pound cake. We chose to use Sara Lee’s frozen All Butter Pound Cake that is ready in 10 minutes.
Then we used their S’mores Pound cake Squares and I varied in the directions just a little bit here and there but the end result was yummy, it was even yummier the next day. I would describe the next day as a delicious decadent chocolate cake doughnut with marshmallow crème. MMM.
S’mores Pound Cake Squares Recipe:
1 Sara Lee® Frozen Pound Cake, thawed
2 cups miniature marshmallows (I probably only used 1 cup as I didn’t measure)
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (I didn’t measure the chocolate chips so it was probably closer to 2 cups)
½ cup chopped peanuts (I didn’t use the peanuts)
- Preheat oven to 400°F.
- Spray a 13×9-inch baking pan with no-stick cooking spray. Cut pound cake into 15 slices. Place in the bottom of a 13×9-inch baking pan cutting to fit, if needed.
- Sprinkle marshmallows, chocolate chips and peanuts evenly over pound cake.
- Bake for 8-10 minutes or until marshmallows are melted and lightly toasted.
- Cool; cut into squares.
I didn’t follow the directions. I cut the pound cake into squares instead of slices as you can see above. Then I baked those squares for 10 minutes. Then I placed those squares in a glass baking dish and I covered with a layer of chocolate chips and French Vanilla Marshmallows. Then I repeated the process until I used up all of the pound cake. I cooked for about 15 minutes because it took longer the way I had it layered for it to brown all the way.
If you follow their directions to the T I imagine you’ll have a much more photogenic S’mores Pound Cake Square than I do have pictured here. But in my book, looks are always deceiving as things taste much better than they look.
