When we bake we love to listen to music. All kinds of music.  Here are some pieces that will guarantee great bread and great times.

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.

Well, leaf-shaped or not we liked it.

The folks at Tuesdays with Dorie probably had some gorgeous results, but the taste of ours was out of this world. Ha!

The recipe is in Baking with Julia by Dorie Greenspan.

It was a lot of fun to make this dessert :). It was kind of hard to split the dough but besides that it was pretty simple and tasted very good. – Barney

50. Vanilla Chiffon Roll


I enjoyed making the cake part, but I didn’t make the mousse to go in it. The cake was very simple to make and pretty when it was finished. -Barnie
