Rosemary Pound Cakes with Port-Soaked Dried Fruits

Fresh rosemary, with its woodsy character and resinous hints, gives these miniature pound cakes a decidedly savory edge. A hearty compote of spice-infused port and chunky dried fruits is full of concentrated flavors that perfectly match the bold taste of the cakes.

Surprised no one's reviewed this yet! Found this great recipe in the cookbook in my local library... an interesting compiliation of slightly different angles on dessert - often throwing an herb or savory element into a normally sweet treat. This is a great example, the rosemary gives the pound cake a great sophisticated flavor and the port glaze sauce with dried fruits is so perfectly matched with the cake. This is a very rich, great dessert perfect for fall / winter. A small piece goes a long way, and is full of yummy flavors :D I keep coming back to this recipe; people are always impressed with the combination.
Pros: Appearance, Impressive, Will Make Again, interesting flavors
