Pound Cake with Strawberry Balsamic Syrup
The balsamic mixture appears sticky when first mixed with berries, but chilling it for 1 hour helps it dissolve into the berry juice. This is also delicious with pound cake and whipped cream, mascarpone, or fresh ricotta. If desperate for this when strawberries are out of season, substitute with frozen berries. Prep: 10 minutes, Cook: 6 minutes.
