Torched Pound Cake

We are ending the week on a sweet note, friends. Remember last week when I posted the recipe for pound cake and promised some variations to mix it up? Well here is the first. I confess, this is kind of over-the-top, but so effin good. This works best when your poundcake has sat for a day (wrapped, of course). And don’t forget to bake it with chocolate chips like I suggest! Get a cast iron skillet nice and hot over medium high heat and add in about half a tablespoon of butter. Fry your poundcake on both sides until it gets a bit brown and crispy. The chocolate chips will heat up and get nice gooey. mmm. Then, take some marshmallow fluff – I know, so gross, but so good – pile it on top, and spread it out in an even layer. Then, take a kitchen torch and fire it to a golden brown. It’s such a decadent treat. If you don’t have a torch, you can stash it under the broiler for a few minutes, but keep a close eye on it. What I love about this dessert is you could serve it at a fancy dinner to wow your lover or impress some people or you could serve it to a group of rowdy drunken friends and it will work equally well in both situations. I’m sorry, who doesn’t love toasted marshmallow? Enjoy!
