Unless noted, each recipe makes 1 serving and assumes you packed salt, pepper, and oil/butter.


  • 1 slice pound cake, wrapped in plastic wrap
  • 2/3 cup dried sweetened strawberries
  • 1 Tbsp almond butter


In a small pot, bring ½ cup water and strawberries to a boil. Simmer until berries are plump and soft, about 5 minutes. Spread almond butter on cake slice, then spoon warm berries and desired amount of liquid over each (more liquid makes for moister cake).
