Whenever we have friends or family over for dinner, I either decide to cut corners somewhere in the meal or with dessert. Since I love to bake, it's usually somewhere in the meal. But this time, I decided to cut corners on dessert and no one would have known if I didn't tell them! This dessert is so simple to make, I almost can't believe I'm writing a blog post about it.
I took my Meyer lemon curd that I made and spooned it over the top of a pound cake I bought at the store and really good vanilla bean ice cream. The richness from the buttery pound cake was balanced out with the tang from the lemon curd and the creaminess of the ice cream. The best part about this dessert is that it is really simple to assemble so you don't have to spend a lot of time in the kitchen after dinner which allows you to spend more time with your guests :)
