“When I was growing up, pound cake was a family favorite. Bake a good pound cake and you were loved by all. Seriously. There was no gift I could give my grandmother (my dad’s mom) that she would have preferred over my pound cake. Grandma loved pound cake, and she said mine were the best.”
crust….oh my! So amazingly good! Better than any ‘normal’ pound cake I’ve ever tasted. I drizzled an orange juice and powdered sugar glaze over the top of my cakes and it added another level of yummyness (if that’s possible).
Not that you need yet another confirmation on how good this pound cake is, but I have to share her son’s comments she posted, I totally agree with him:
“My son was home for the weekend and ended up eating almost one entire loaf by himself, and then more later. He told me I should sell this cake in individual slices for $4 or $5 … “Mom, I’m serious. You could make a fortune.” (And, he’s mentioned his love of this cake and his entrepreneurial ideas for me several times since.)”
