Tuck this dessert in the freezer for one of those anytime celebrations. This caramel, butter pecan and almond version is our favorite, but try it with other ice cream flavors.—Tina Stelzl, Waxhaw, North Carolina
MY Mother made this family favorite from scratch and it was the most requested birthday cake. We could hardly wait for apple harvest to begin, because we kids knew what would be baking in the oven. The tempting aroma brought us right into the kitchen.
A plain purchased pound cake's at the heart of the elegant-looking dessert. I've used angel food cake, cupcakes, doughnuts and even a stack of cookies as the base in place of the pound cake. Top it off with a fun selection of sundae makings—nuts, orange rinds, cherries, etc.—Nova MacIssac, Souris, Prince Edward Island
