“Although I have collected many pound cake recipes, this is my favorite. I took a classic pound cake recipe and added a couple of ingredients. This is a crowd pleaser; one person ate three slices, and took some home as well. I usually have to bake this longer than the recipe indicates; it will depend on your oven. You may freeze individually wrapped slices for unexpected company.”
