Mary Jarrell's Pound Cake

“This is a recipe for the BEST POUND cake I have ever had. This was my Grandmothers recipe. She recently passed at the ripe old age of 100 and I think she would have liked to share this with the world. She would bake 10 of these at a time and give them to everyone including the mailman, paperman and anyone she would meet. So since she is no longer to bake them, I will spread the joy she would have this way. Please give it a try. Serve it plan, with your favorite fruit, ice cream or chocolate sauce or whatever you would like. The possibilities are limitless. Or better yet make two and give one as a gift.”
