Pound Cake

Anytime is a good time for pound cake, right?  Yeah, it’s definitely not a light dessert and this particular recipe is a bit sweeter than most but it is so moist and dense, just as a pound cake is suppose to be.  And you know if it was a favorite pound cake to Mr. Presley, that is must be delicious!

But the beauty of pound cake is that it is quite portable. You can easily carry an entire cake to an event, a picnic or family barbecue or you can slice it up, freeze it, and pull out a piece, as needed.  It’s great for an afternoon kid snack or a dessert for your workplace lunchbox. As is, it’s not messy at all so kids can handle it quite easily!

It’s other beauty is that it can be topped with a multitude of “things” making it the “go to” cake that will satisfy everyone’s tastes. If having a dinner party, you could even have a pound cake “bar” providing a variety of ice creams, toppings and whipped cream so everyone can make their own. It’ll definitely be the hit of the party!  Try it!

Bon appétit!

    Hi Patti! I am a high school friend of your sister Pam’s and saw this recipe on Facebook. I have a favorite pound cake recipe that I’ve made for 30 years but this one sounded SO good! I made it yesterday and it was so delicious that I may retire mine! Thank you for sharing! I will make this again and again!

      Ah, so glad you liked it. You know I’ve had that recipe forever. I put Southern Living as the author because I “think” that’s where I pulled it from many moons ago but I could be wrong. It is a divine pound cake. I’ll be posting something you can do with that pound cake tomorrow. Stay tuned.
