Ready to take your pound cake recipe from plain to phenomenal? You’re going to love what I’ve done with this one! I think I even surprised myself! A little background: This winter we decided to take skiing to another level. Instead of skiing once a week, we decided to rent a ski house and ski all weekend, every weekend. We really enjoy this, as we get to embrace winter and exercise while having fun as a family. Besides, my best friend joins us for the fun each Saturday.
As soon as we finish skiing, both families head to the ski house looking for something to eat. Skiing makes you hungry! I always make sure to have a snack for this starving crowd. One of their favorite snacks is pound cake and hot chocolate. Who can resist a good pound cake? But eating a bare pound cake week after week can get boring, so I decided to ice it with one of my favorite ingredients: cream cheese and Mango Chutney. Get it, “ice it up,” because it’s icing!
I tried the combination of Mango Chutney and Cheese in December and it was delicious. I also tried it in a Brie recipe and again: delicious. So I decided to try this combination a my pound cake recipe!
Pound cake recipe with Mango Chutney and Cream cheese icing
- Bake the pound cake as the directions on my recipe.
- Let it cool
- In a small bowl, mix the cream cheese and Sweet Mango Chutney
- Ice the cake with this mixture
- Decorate with your favourite fruits. I had Kiwis on hand so I used them to decorate
I loved the mix of sweet Mango and the Cream cheese. It added a delicious flavor to the icing. It also adds moistness to the pound cake, which makes it melt even further into the mouth.
