8 No-Fail Pound Cake Recipes

Wednesday March 4th, is National Pound Cake Day.  Pound cakes date back to the early 1700's and originally  consisted of one pound each of  butter, sugar, flour and eggs.  This no-fail  combination was easy for cooks to remember, hence the name.  The generous ingredient amounts made a large pound cake but through the years the ingredient amounts have been scaled back to yield a smaller pound cake. 


Pound cakes remain one of our most beloved and favorite desserts here in the South in every flavor.  Celebrate this timeless classic with one of these 8 no-fail  pound cake recipes.  

Sauteed Sirloin Tips With Bell Peppers And Onion

This sirloin tip steak saute may not come to mind when you're thinking about quick-fix meals, but in truth, it really is.  Once the steak bites have been marinated you can have this dish ready to serve in around 20 minutes.  I like to serve it with a baked potato or mashed potatoes and a salad for a tasty and quick weeknight meal.


At times, I'll turn this skillet saute into a Tex-Mex creation seasoning the sirloin tips with fajita seasoning and a squeeze of lime juice.  Wrap in warm tortillas and top with your favorite fajita toppers.  To go full-out Asian, use an Asian seasoning in place of the steak seasoning and serve over rice or on toasted sub rolls.  It's a quick-fix meal to fill hungry tummies and there's never a scrap leftover.

Onion Strings With Creamy Sriracha Dipping Sauce

These onion strings are the type you might find piled high on a burger, steak or barbecue chicken sandwich.  My family will happily dive into these onion strings as an appetizer, too. Crispy and golden with just the right amount of seasoning, they never ever get old.  I whipped-up a scrumptious sauce to go with them using the new Heinz Tomato Ketchup blended with Sriracha.  It's fab-u-lous!  We love this homemade sauce for dipping chicken tenders, and on burgers, chicken sandwiches and even fried pickles.  It's spicy-sweet making it the perfect companion for these onion strings.


These crispy onion strings are soaked in buttermilk and then lightly breaded with seasoned flour. Paired with this delicious creamy sriracha dipping sauce they're company worthy and guaranteed to disappear in a flash.

Peanut Butter Mallow Bars

When I was a little girl, I most often packed my lunch for school.  I had a rockin' Barbie lunch box that I adored.  It was black patent and had brightly colored pictures of Barbie and her friends scattered all over.  What can I say, I thought I was stylin' and making a fashion statement. Oh, how times have changed.


There was one day of the week that it was imperative that I buy my lunch.  That was the day they were serving these chewy little peanut butter bars as a dessert.  They were chewy, not fudge-like in texture and I absolutely loved them.  I remember taking tiny bites so I could savor each and every one.  I thought they were heavenly.  These mallow bars were inspired by those delectable chewy peanut butter bars that I loved as a little girl.  The marshmallows add a bit of "chewiness" and the cookies a bit of crunch.
