March 4th is 


So, the kind folks at Sara Lee asked me to help them celebrate by creating a pound cake recipe using Sara Lee All Butter Pound Cake!

And so we can all celebrate NATIONAL POUND CAKE DAY Sara Lee is giving one of my dear readers a $50.00 gift certificate and coupons for Sara Lee products! 

I took a beloved family recipe (Pineapple Bread Pudding) and tweaked it by using Sara Lee Pound Cake and that took it over-the-top! 

It would be perfect to serve with your Easter ham... or with a dollop of ice cream as a yummy dessert... don't forget the rum sauce!

1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
4 eggs
1~ 20 oz.   can crushed pineapple, (drained)
1 Sara Lee Pound Cake, cut into 1 inch cubes
1/2 cup pecans, chopped
Rum Sauce, follows

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 

Cream butter and sugar together with an electric mixer until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.

Add 4 eggs, one at a time to the creamed sugar and butter.  Beat until well incorporated. Add pineapple and mix just until incorporated.

Fold in Sara Lee Pound Cake and pecans by hand.

Spray 5-6 ramekins generously with cooking spray.  Spoon the Pound Cake mixture into each bowl.

Set the bowls on a parchment lined baking sheet.

Bake for 35 minutes. Until it is bubbling and the top is crispy!

You can also put the Pound Cake mixture into an 8x8 pan... just remember to spray it well!

Bake  for 1 hour.

Rum Sauce
1/2 cup butter
2 egg yolks
1 cup dark brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup rum
2 TBS heavy cream

Make a double boiler by putting a heat proof bowl over a pot of simmering water.  Add all the ingredients but the heavy cream.  Whisk and cook for about 7 minutes, until the sauce is silky and thickened a little. Remove from heat and add the heavy cream.

Serve on the side with Pineapple Pound Cake Pudding!
