Several years back, I asked my mother in-law what kind of cake would she like me to make for her birthday. Not wanting to trouble me, she requested a simple pound cake with whipped cream and strawberries. Only problem, I'd never made a pound cake. But a found a recipe and have since modified it. Now every time I see beautiful strawberries in the spring, I am tempted to make a pound cake.

- 2 cups granulated sugar
- 3 tablespoons agave nectar
