French Fridays With Dorie - Quatre-Quarts

Dorie's version of Quatre-Quarts (pound cake) is crumbly and delicious.  A very simple and fast recipe.  A few simple ingredients and in 30 minutes I had made a wonderful treat for my family.  For a little kick I added 2 tablespoons of spiced rum...Salut! 

As part of French Fridays with Dorie we are cooking our way through Dorie Greenspan's Around My French Table.  Next week we'll be making Broth Braised Potatoes.....join us.

Rum in mine too but not just any rum...rum that has been soaking a whole summer's worth of fruits! Isn't it nice to have a quick easy recipe for a change?
