from this post, I made a nectarine one. I was baking my 4-year old's birthday cake anyway, and I didn't need the whole recipe of this pound cake. With the leftover batter, I made a small cake in a loaf pan and used that. I thought this combo might be weird but it was just divine! The whole fam loved it. I did over-whip the cream, but oh well. It still tasted great.
(idea from googling "Nectarine Shortcake)
1 loaf pound cake, store-bought or homemade
4-6 medium nectarines, slice and cut each slice into 3-4 pieces
1/4 cup sugar (I used vanilla sugar)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, if not using vanilla sugar
1. Toss the nectarines, sugar, and vanilla extract together in a bowl and let sit for at least 15 minutes.
2. Sliced the pound cake into equal slices. Place one slice on a plate. Top with the nectarine mixture and whipped cream. Top with another slice, and top that again with nectarines and whipped cream. Serve.
