Hello Friends! How is your week going? We went on a little road trip last weekend and it felt so good to be away for a weekend. We enjoyed some wine tasting and some lovely vineyard scenery.
Why This Recipe?
Sometimes there is nothing like a good pound cake to just fulfill your sweet tooth. Back in the day, a pound cake was made with a pound of each, flour, sugar, eggs, and butter. I promise you this one is lighter but is sooooooo good! I like to serve mine with fresh whipped cream and berries, but y0u could also serve plain or with a light icing.
Pound cakes are great at any time of year. I tend to make them more during fall and winter because when it is cold, I love baking.
