62. Vanilla Pound Cake

Posted on

Bronwyn and Alexis are at Senior High BandCamp at Arkansas Tech University for the week. They trusted me to make this cake all alone. It was fun to make and I had all the ingredients on hand. The crust was nice and a bit crunchy and the inside had a moist and gentle crumb. I will encourage the girls to make this for our next get-together. My grandfather made a similar pound cake. The aroma of the kitchen as it baked took me back to rural Alabama and the nurturing love of family. Yum.

Tuesdays with Dorie has many other bakers’ renditions of this cake.
