Cherry Poundcake with Lime Glaze

Deciding what to take to a picnic or potluck can be tricky sometimes. Whether you are taking a hot or cold dish there are challenges to getting it to your destination. Problems like how to keep it warm or how to warm it up once you arrive. If you are using a cooler to keep food cold, you have to make sure it doesn’t accidentally get waterlogged if ice melts.

This Cherry Pound Cake with Lime Glaze however is very easy to carry with you and it doesn’t have to be warm or cold! I have been known to cut it in slices and carry it in some Tupperware to keep it fresh and serve it right from the Tupperware container.

    I don’t have any 9 x 12 loaf pans. The largest I have are the 5 x 9. Would that make 3 loaves instead of the 2 you mention? I’m also assuming that the baking time would be less with the smaller loaves.

    Thank you.
