Ingredients

  • STRAWBERRY POUND CAKE:

  • 2 1/2

    cups fresh strawberries, chopped

  • 1

    cup butter, room temperature

  • 2

    cups white sugar, divided

  • 4

    eggs

  • 3

    cups flour

  • 1

    teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/2

    teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/2

    teaspoon salt

  • 2/3

    cup sour cream

  • 1

    teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1/4

    teaspoon strawberry extract

  • STRAWBERRY GLAZE:

  • 1

    cup white sugar, divided

  • 1

    cup strawberries, chopped

  • 1/2

    teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1/4

    teaspoon strawberry extract

Directions

Preheat oven to 325°F. Grease and flour a tube pan. Place strawberries in a bowl and cover with 1/2 cup of the sugar. Let sit for two hours or until you have 1/2 cup strawberry juice; set aside. Place the strawberries for the glaze in a bowl and cover with 1/2 of the sugar also to make strawberry juice. In a mixing bowl, beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy; approximately 3 to 5 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Combine the dry ingredients and add to the creamed mixture alternately with the sour cream; mix well. Fold in the strawberries and juice. Pour into the prepared cake pan and bake for 55 minutes, or when a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, remove and invert onto a wire rack. Poke holes on the top of the cake with a fork. In a small saucepan, combine the sugar and reserved strawberry juice. Add the sliced strawberries. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1 minute. Remove from the heat; stir in extracts. Drizzle some of the sauce over the warm cake. Serve cake with remaining sauce and homemade whipped cream.
