Sweet Treat Croutons

Prep time 10 mins
Bake time 10 mins
Cool time 30 mins
Yield Makes about 2 cups
You can make toasty crouton bites with homemade pound cake too. They're also a grand addition to fondue, your favorite ice cream, or as a topping on fresh fruit salad. 


  • 1/2 (10.75-oz.) package frozen butter pound cake, thawed
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Cut butter pound cake into 1/2-inch cubes, and place in a large bowl. Add butter and chopped fresh mint, and toss gently to coat. Place cubes in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes or until lightly toasted. Cool completely (about 30 minutes).
