What's the difference between a crisp and crumble? And what the hell are Buckles, Grunts and Bettys, exactly? Maybe this clears it up? Whatever the case may be, I don't think this recipe's title is entirely accurate, because pound cake is not a traditional baked-fruit topping. But it is fast, easy and entirely delicious. Here, toasted, sugared cubes of pound cake (lemon-yogurt might just be the perfect choice) cover a steaming, bubbling dish of tart blueberries. Plums, nectarines, peaches, berries, rhubarb, pears, etc., would also do terrifically, especially when served with ginger, coconut, cinnamon or plain old vanilla ice cream. SEE RECIPE »
