Keep a purchased pound cake in your freezer and the rest of the ingredients in your pantry. You'll be ready to fix this quick and easy dessert whenever unexpected guests stop by.
1. Trim rounded top and brown sides from poundcake. Slice into 4 equal slices lengthwise. Broil 2 to 3 minutes, turning over once. Spread each slice with 2 tablespoons seedless raspberry jam. Drizzle each slice with 2 ounces melted white chocolate; top each slice with 2 tablespoons sliced almonds, scattering evenly. Cut each slice into thirds, then each third in half diagonally. Makes 24 points.
