Happy Pound Cake Day!

photo by Kanko

In honor of Sunday Funday, we grabbed brunch earlier today with a few friends. In addition to the delicious bottomless mimosas, they had one of the best dessert menus I've seen in awhile. Carrot cake. Red velvet cake. Home made ding dongs? Helloooo! While I did sneak a bite of my friend's dessert, I stayed strong and stuck to my plate of scrambled eggs and roasted potatoes. However, I guess it wasn't too much of a sacrifice, particularly since I knew I'd be going home to a lovely pound cake. In case you didn't know, today is National Pound Cake Day. Pound cake is one of my favorite desserts, especially topped off with some fruit. And this lemon-flavored one is freakin' fabulous!

Here are a few other sucralose-sweetened, low-cal pound cake recipes that won't have you busting out the larger pants anytime soon. Enjoy!
