MOJITO POUND CAKE
Mojito Pound Cake
After examining the CakeLove cookbook I decided to attempt the decidedly Summer appropriate Mojito Pound Cake. To answer your burning question, yes, it really does taste like a Mojito! Actually it tastes like a great Mojito, not one of those ghastly drinks you get from a hurried bartender because they think you’re a jerk for ordering one in the middle of a rush, but a carefully made, simple syrup, and seriously muddled Mojito that makes you sit back and say, “Ahhhhh…” Mojito Pound Cake with Rum-Flavored Italian Meringue Buttercream (Based on the recipe originally published in CakeLove: How to Bake Cakes from Scratch by Warren Brown) Note: The actual recipe, including notes is three pages long. Below is my condensed version.
