Balsamic Strawberries over Pound Cake

Prep: 3 minutes; Cook: 5 minutes

Italians love simple desserts where fruit is the star, and this one is a perfect example. A splash of sweet balsamic vinegar enhances the flavor of the strawberries. Toast the cake slices before topping them with fruit, if desired.
