Dessert Fries

Faux “Fries” with Raspberry “Ketchup”

1 loaf of pound cake (homemade or store bought)

1 cardboard French fry container (ask politely at a restaurant that serves fries this way and you shall receive)

Prep

1 Preheat oven to 350°F.

2 Trim off a thin layer of the cake’s brown exterior crust. Then cut pound cake lengthwise into 1/4-inch slices. Turn slices on their side and cut into 1/4-inch strips. Trim to 4 to 5 inches in length (if this sounds confusing, just remember, you are creating French fry-shaped strips).

3 Arrange strips on cookie sheet and bake for approximately 10 minutes, or until lightly browned on top and bottom. Turn strips and bake for approximately 4 more minutes, or until remaining two sides are lightly browned. Let cool, then arrange in fries container.

Raspberry “Ketchup”

1 12-ounce bag frozen raspberries, thawed, or 2 cups of fresh raspberries

2 tablespoons of confectionery (powdered) sugar

1 empty ketchup squeeze bottle

Prep

1 Place raspberries in a blender or food processor, and puree (add a few tablespoons of water, or lemon juice, if necessary, to facilitate blending).

2 Add sugar, one teaspoon at a time, to taste—until tartness is gone.

3 Place raspberry puree in a fine mesh strainer over a bowl. Use a rubber spatula to force the puree through the strainer. Discard the seeds and transfer the puree to the squeeze bottle. Serve alongside “fries”.

    I love the blog & wanted to invite you to Barbarella, for an appetizer and a drink. I have an amazing beer line up! I don’t know if you’re into craft beer, but regardless, I have a feeling you’ll love the food.

    Come in, ask for Bobby – It’d be great to meet you.

    The specific amount can be component of the trim garland rather of on best of the cake.
