Pound Cakes in NYC?
I'm looking to make a berry trifle for my holiday dinner, and was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for bakeries with good pound cakes in NYC? I don't eat many baked goods, so I'm clueless as to purveyors of quality whole pound cakes here.
I'd prefer not to go the Entenmann's route.
You're right, Entenmann's is not like pound cake at all. Theirs is too fluffy. The closest I've found to old fashioned moist pound cake is the house brand at Fairway. It isn't quite as good as what we used to get from Peter Pan Bake Shops back in the 1950's but it will do for now. Fairway's used to be better but they started labelling it "Kosher" so I guess the butter came out. I wish they would offer the old recipe as well.
This may be heresy to say here but I used to love Sara Lee frozen pound cake. I'd slice off a piece of the still frozen cake, pop it in the toaster oven for a minute or two and then add a scoop of ice cream and chocolate sauce, deeeeeelicious!
Just as a followup, I found some great poundcake from the bakers at the greenmarket at Grand Army Plaza on Saturday's.
